ATF autumn run started: aiming for the beam size required for the ILC

| 25 October 2012 KEK's Accelerator Test facility (ATF) is up again after its summer shutdown. After several improvements to beams size monitors, multi-ole magnets and the organisation structure, the international team is looking forward to squeezing the beam size further and further towards the 37 nanometres required for the ILC.

Recovery from March 2011 earthquake at ATF, KEK

| 15 December 2011 Restoration of the Accelerator Test Facility is in its final stage at KEK, Japan, where the ATF2 project, the final focus test beam for ILC, is being conducted with an international collaboration. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

A scientist’s report on the earthquake and KEK’s accelerator test facility

| 17 March 2011 A huge 9.0-magnitude earthquake descended on us at about 14:46 on 11 March 2011 Japan standard time. The ATF (accelerator test facility) was operating for ATF2 beam-tuning and we were going to have a background study for the interaction point beam size monitor. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

Progress in the nanometre world

| 24 February 2011 Two periods dedicated to beam tuning and beam size studies at KEK's Accelerator Test Facility ATF2, built to test the ILC's final focus system, have brought researchers a step closer to achieving the ILC's demanding beam parameters. Executive Committee member Toshiaki Tauchi reports on the studies. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

ATF2 enters the nanometre world

| 29 April 2010 The ATF2 collaboration has recently succeeded to obtain vertical beam size of less than one micrometre and consequently has now entered into the nanometre world in the final focus system. In this corner, I will describe what is AFT2 and how we reached this challenging beam size. -- Toshiaki Tauchi Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
