The ILC Supporters – celebrities for the linear collider

| 4 October 2018 Have you ever seen pictures of people proudly showing off tattoos or stickers showing a compass-like stylised particle collision and wondered what that was all about? Have you heard of a group called “ILC Supporters” but didn’t know who they are and how to join them? This interview with Kimura U, Japan’s "ambassador for cute (kawaii)" and famous ILC Supporter, should answer all your questions. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Getting lots of heads round the test beam data

| 4 October 2018 Here is how to tackle what would normally take a couple of months in a couple of weeks. A group of students and experts from the CALICE Collaboration recently spent three weeks tucked away at the University of Tokyo to get their heads round and analyse all the data taken at the most recent testbeam of the CALICE calorimeter setup. They emerged with new ideas and lots of knowledge in their heads. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

From SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory: Superconducting X-Ray Laser Takes Shape in Silicon Valley

1 February 2018 The first cryomodule has arrived at SLAC. Linked together and chilled to nearly absolute zero, 37 of these segments will accelerate electrons to almost the speed of light and power an upgrade to the nation’s only X-ray free-electron laser facility.

Gearing up to final form

| 14 December 2017 Sometimes a neat line of dots on a computer screen can stand for that moment when it all comes together. A reward for years of hard work, many meetings, lots of travel and nights spent in test beam huts. At least that’s the case for a team of physicists and engineers who have spent the last years designing and testing detector components for a future linear-collider detector, the Silicon-Tungsten electromagnetic calorimeter or SiW-ECAL. During a recent test campaign at the German research lab DESY the developers came together to probe their latest detector design together with the latest sensors and all components that have been developed over the last years.

Science First with the ILC- Keynote speech by Takeo Kawamura

8 December 2016 In his keynote at LCWS2016, former MEXT Minister Takeo Kawamura stressed that while fundamental research may have application in the long run, it's the science that is most important. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

German teachers get a taste of ILC R&D

| 23 November 2016 Teachers in the test beam! ILC cavitiy testing and test beam life played a major role at a recent teacher training held at DESY. It was the first time that the German lab invited high school teachers for a week focused on particle physics. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

ILC constructed in Tokyo’s Roppongi area

| 23 November 2016 A not-to-be-missed event in Tokyo this autumn was a 15-metre-long original art work representing the ILC. Designed by famous architect Jo Nagasaka, the exhibition was built with the help of more than 300 students in a traditional Japanese way with rammed earth. In one week, more than 40,000 enthusiastic visitors had the chance discover the ILC project in a unique way. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,
