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: , , , ,

Physics that goes bang

| 16 August 2012 A new stage show based on accelerators and accelerator physics is taking off in Germany this month. Conceived by two ILC scientists at DESY, it shows the basic ingredients of a particle accelerator, complete with all the fun stuff, to schoolchildren ages 12 and up. It even gives a live audience-involving demonstration of the fundamental acceleration principle of the ILC. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

Update on SRF and NML

9 August 2012 The development of the superconducting 1.3-GHz radio-frequency test facility at NML, which would comprise three cryomodules and an electron beam to test them, suffered a setback earlier this year with the zeroing out of funds for the International Linear Collider. NML will continue to operate as a cryomodule test facility despite the zeroing out of ILC funds, explains Fermilab Director Pier Oddone in his 31-July Director's Corner.

Report to build a new international science city presented

| 2 August 2012 On 30 July, a report called "Science Frontier Kyushu" was presented in the eighth meeting of a study group in Kyushu, the southernmost island of Japan. This report is indicative of the prefectures' aim in urban development to build a new international science city, which could be a hub of science research in the 21st century.

From Fermilab Today: Fermilab’s new cavity temperature mapping system commissioned

| 26 July 2012 Fermilab scientists have a new diagnostic tool that could lead to far more efficient accelerator cavities. The temperature mapping system, fitted with 576 sensors, reads the temperature of every square centimetre of cavity surface and might thus help scientists get to the bottom of the problem of why superconducting cavities dissipate much more energy than theory predicts.

Spain holds the 40th “International Meeting on Fundamental Physics” and the “Cantabria Campus Nobel”

12 July 2012 Spain was recently host to two international physics and science encounters: the 40th International Meeting on Fundamental Physics and the Cantabria Campus Nobel. While one was pivotal for the Spanish high-energy physics landscape, the other offered a unique opportunity for scientists from all ages and backgrounds to exchange ideas.

The grand unifying 3-D chip

| 28 June 2012 A new integration technology that could also be used in the ILC detectors will soon serve as a node point for connecting several German and international institutes and universities in the common goal to develop fast, efficient and reliable detector components in the Helmholtz Detector Technology and Systems Platform. The unusual aspect of the collaboration: these detectors are not only for Higgs- and SUSY-hunting apparatus for particle physics, but also for more compact and more targeted devices for use in light sources.

China’s roadmap for ILC international cooperation discussed

| 7 June 2012 Last week, China’s second Linear Collider Workshop was held in Beijing to discuss how China can join in the pre-research and future construction of ILC project more constructively. A unanimous consensus was reached that China should play an active role in ILC international cooperation and key-technology R&D on accelerator and detectors should be further pushed ahead.
