Art explaining science with the help of the ILC

| 6 October 2016 Want to help build the International Linear Collider? This autumn, the International Linear Collider exhibition will be installed at one of the biggest art event in Tokyo. Have a go at its construction... Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

See you, summer students

| 8 September 2016 Summer is drawing to a close, and with it ends another season that often turns lab life on its head and has changed many people’s lives: summer student season. As the students from around the world finish off their projects, present their work to their fellow students and stock up on lab t-shirts, some leave with the certainty that they will return to do particle physics one day.

Bump or no bump

| 11 August 2016 High Energy Physics (HEP) has always been a field with great discoveries and the field seems to be ‘storming’ forward as some attendees of this ICHEP declared. Not only new LHC results were the center point of this conference but also the discovery of gravitational waves, new neutrino measurements and of course future facilities like the ILC and CLIC.

Gotta catch them all – and fast

| 22 July 2016 Silicon detectors play a crucial role in particle detectors, both present experiment at the LHC and future experiments like the ILC. More than 80 calorimeter and silicon tracking experts attended a dedicated workshop on high-granularity silicon devices, held last month in Hamburg.

Tunnel visions for civil engineers

| 7 July 2016 A delegation from the Japan Society of Civil Engineers including its president took to Europe last month to have a look at civil engineering project for large science facilities. They visited CERN and DESY to look at past and current building projects, which they would use as a reference in case ILC is constructed in Japan. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

International Linear Collider community meets at ECFA workshop LCWS16

| 23 June 2016 The European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) hosted a Linear Collider Workshop from 30 May to 5 June in Santander, Spain, and offered many opportunities to exchange knowledge and technical know-how to over 200 scientists from all around the world. The ILC community and the CLIC community used this workshop to come together and present their recent developments and new findings in many plenary talks and a large number of parallel sessions. Both projects show their steady progress. But not only science and advancements were the focus of the workshop – also industrial partners and important political developments had their slot on the packed workshop schedule.

From metal sheet to particle accelerator (part 3 of 3)

| 12 May 2016 If you're an electron, a ride in a cavity is pretty much the coolest thing that can happen to you. If you're an accelerator and you need huge numbers of cavities you better make sure they're all of outstanding quality – which is what the X-ray free-electron laser European XFEL under construction in Hamburg has just finished. In a series first published in DESY inForm, we look at how a niobium sheet turns into a curvy beauty. Part three describes how they make their way from test benches into the cryomodules and, finally, into the tunnel. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Akira Yamamoto awarded the Medal with Purple Ribbon

| 28 April 2016 On 28 April, the Japanese government announced the winners of the "Medal with Purple Ribbon" for 2016, and Akira Yamamoto, professor of KEK and Regional Director for Asia of Linear Collider Collaboration, is one of them. He receives the Medal for his contribution to the advancement of superconducting technology. This medal is awarded to individuals who have contributed to academic and artistic developments, improvements and accomplishments. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

KEK changes organisational structure towards realisation of the ILC

| 28 April 2016 With the future in mind, Japan's High Energy Accelerator Research Organisation, KEK has made a change to its organisational structure regarding the ILC project. By doing so, KEK is getting ready for the "green light" from Japanese government. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

From metal sheet to particle accelerator (part 2 of 3)
