InGrids on the rise

| 16 April 2015 An alternative technology for the ILD detector’s TPC tracker shows good results in a test beam at DESY. While the Large Hadron Collider saw its first circulating protons since many months, a detector technology for the time projection chamber of a future ILC detector saw some 1.5 million events in one week. Due to its specific technology, it probably has more channels than any other TPC so far. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

From Fermilab Today: Superconducting test accelerator achieves first electron beam

2 April 2015 Fermilab's advanced superconducting test accelerator was built to take advantage of SRF technology accelerator research and development. Last week, after more than seven years of planning and building by scientists and engineers, the accelerator has delivered its first beam. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Tokyo event during ALCW: Taste of Discovery

| 5 March 2015 22 April 2015, the middle day of the Asian Linear Collider Workshop (ALCW), will be a special day. Jointly hosted by Linear Collider Collaboration (LCC) and the Japanese industry-academia collaboration Advanced Accelerator Association Promoting Science and Technology (AAA), two events will be held on the same day: the ILC Tokyo Symposium and the Special Food Festa, Taste of Discovery. A new website for these events is now open. Category: Around the World | Tagged:

CLICing into action

| 5 February 2015 The first prototype module of CLIC is operational in the CLIC test facility. The Compact Linear Collider Study shows that it does what it says in the acronym: a compact accelerator module, fed by high-power waveguides, cables and cooling tubes, sits elegantly on a custom-made mechanical structure that can be moved in all directions to ultra-high precision, and tests how all the little details work that turn a metal structure into a functioning accelerator module– frequency, losses, damping, acceleration, deceleration. At the CLIC test facility you see none of the heavy-duty steel pipes that characterise the dipole magnets of the LHC. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

2020 on the horizon

| 22 January 2015 Good news for detector developers in Europe: the AIDA-2020 proposal to the European Commission has been selected to be funded as part of the Horizon 2020 programme. This means that future projects needing state-of-the-art particle detectors like the Large Hadron Collider upgrade and the linear collider will receive a total of ten million euros funding over the next four years. Thirty-eight participants from all across Europe take part in AIDA2020, including CERN as coordinating institute, making it the largest European detector R&D project.

Back to the future

| 11 December 2014 The Future Circular Collider (FCC) study, though even further in the future than the ILC, might be feeding technology back to its linear cousin. An interactive tunnel-planning tool developed by a civil engineering design company for planning the future circular colliders in the CERN vicinity could prove to be useful for detailed planning and design optimisation of the ILC in the designated Kitakami site.

Japanese industry getting ready for the ILC

| 11 December 2014 Japanese businesspeople and scientists gathered in Tokyo last week to attend the general meeting of the Advanced Accelerator Association Promoting Science and Technology, which is now a general incorporated association. At this occasion, three special lectures were given Lyn Evans, Hitoshi Murayama and Sachio Komamiya from the Linear Collider Collaboration and Board. The Japanese science community will closely collaborate with the association in the future towards the realisation of the ILC. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Vertical wonder

| 26 November 2014 US scientists, with assistance from private industry have designed the newest iteration of a special chip with a 3D integrated circuit, for the ILC's vertex detector that will help measure properties of incoming particles at a higher resolution than previously achievable. The ILC is now another step closer to being an engineering reality. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

From Fermilab Today: New technique for generating RF power may dramatically cut linac costs

| 13 November 2014 A team at Fermilab has developed a new technique to use a magnetron to power a superconducting radio-frequency accelerating cavity, potentially saving hundreds of millions of dollars in the construction and operating costs of future linear accelerators.

Green ILC: towards sustainable colliders

| 30 October 2014 Smashing particles together at high energies is power-consuming business. People around the world are discussing to see if the ILC could be made green in the hope to finally reach complete sustainability. More efficient klystrons and cryocoolers, recovering and recycling heat wastes, embedding renewable energies and storage technologies are some of the main issues. The ILC could bring back high-energy physics to one of its core businesses: energy. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,
