An eye on the pulse

| 6 December 2012 The technical prototype of the silicon-tungsten electromagnetic calorimeter, one of the calorimeter options for the ILC’s ILD detector, is about to spend its first weeks in a test beam at DESY. The team will test its performance under power-pulsed operation and take detector development one step further towards a real collider detector. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

Building the ILC step by step

| 8 November 2012 The Japan association of high-energy physicists has published a proposal of “phased execution” for the International Linear Collider which was accepted by the Japanese high-energy physics community. The so-called phased execution or staged approach is the plan to build a shorter ILC accelerator than the one designed in the ILC TDR, as a first step of the project.

Rolf Heuer, global ILC cities and the role of Japan

| 1 November 2012 On 24 October, a symposium to boost activities to invite the ILC to Japan was held at Tokyo University, Tokyo, Japan. This event received great attention. One of the reason was CERN's Director-General Rolf Heuer's talk, which was delivered for the first time in Japan since the discovery of Higgs-like particle in July.

Accelerating news

11 October 2012 The third issue of Accelerating News, a quarterly online publication for the accelerator community in Europe and beyond, looks towards the future: after the LHC as the world's first Higgs production place, what could a real factory look like? What's the plan for neutrinos? Written by the experts, the newsletter gives a broad overview. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,

and | 11 October 2012 The former chair of the International Linear Collider Steering Committee and of the Asian Committee for Future Accelerators, Shin-ichi Kurokawa, has received the highest award that the People’s Republic of China gives to foreign experts: the Friendship Award of China. The awardees also met Prime Minister Wen Jiabao. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

Japan’s key figures back the ILC

| 27 September 2012 A week after the CERN’s announcement of the discovery of the Higgs-like particle, a group of experts in various field in Japan issued recommendations entitled Creation of Global Cities by hosting the International Linear Collider. Category: Around the World | Tagged:

The welcoming season

| 20 September 2012 Qian Pan, a new ILC communicator for Asia, introduces herself. Qian, who is called Peggy by all her non-Chinese colleagues, is based at IHEP in Beijing. She shares her time between the Foreign Affairs Department of IHEP and ILC communications. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

Linear collider event during IEEE symposium in Anaheim

13 September 2012 There will be a special linear collider event during this year's IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium in Anaheim, US. Industry, accelerator experts and linear collider researchers from around the world gather to discuss technologies and possibilities. Category: Around the World | Tagged: ,

From CERN Bulletin: From calorimetry to medical imaging: a shining example of successful transfer!

30 August 2012 A team at CERN has drawn inspiration from calorimetry methods developed for high-energy physics to create a new positron-emission tomography system for use in medical imaging, which they’ve dubbed AX-PET. With support from European and American laboratories, the project is reaching fruition, as initial tests confirm its promise. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

Japanese high-energy physics community says go for the linear collider

| 23 August 2012 The Japanese high-energy physics community has now published its recommendations in English. Their report strongly endorses two large-scale projects: an early realisation of a linear collider and a large-scale neutrino detector. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,
