Shin-ichi Kurokawa awarded Chinese top prize

| 7 February 2013 Shin-ichi Kurokawa, world-famous Japanese particle accelerator expert and promoter of the ILC, has made great efforts in promoting the personnel exchanges and cooperative researches between Japan and China. Last month, he received a third award in China, the International Science and Technology Cooperation Award, in recognition of his great contribution and dedication to China’s accelerator science development.

DEPFET active pixel detectors for the linear collider

24 January 2013 The DEPFET structure is one of the candidate technologies for the creation of the most transparent pixelated detector in history. Originally developed for the ILC's predecessor TESLA and a firm candidate for the ILC experiments, it has been selected as the baseline technology for the Belle-II experiment in Japan, a shining example of technology transfer in high-energy physics. In a paper submitted to IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science the collaboration reviews its recent progress in the light of the challenging vertex detector requirements of a linear electron-positron collider at the energy frontier.

Asian collaboration on ILC superconducting radiofrequency technologies

| 24 January 2013 When the New Year’s bell was still echoing in the air, physicists from China and Japan gathered in Beijing to attend the fifth IHEP-KEK collaboration meeting on 1.3-GHz superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) technology which was held at the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences from 7 to 8 January 2013. Six high-energy accelerator experts from KEK and Kyoto University and nearly twenty physicists from IHEP participated. Category: Around the World | Tagged: ,

Exciting time for the ILC technical design

| 20 December 2012 After the official handover ceremony of the TDR draft in Tokyo last Saturday, ILC experts, policy makers and members of industry discussed the potential of building the ILC in Japan. One conclusion was that physicists from all over the world would be welcome in Japan, even though they may be considered strange by some. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

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: , , , , ,
