Hungry for science

| 3 November 2011 Last Saturday’s Open Day and Science Night at DESY in Hamburg, Germany, attracted more than 13 000 visitors. The lab presented its many fields of research, including the ILC, in a tent outside the entrance to the HERA accelerator tunnel. ILC detector developers and accelerator experts explained what the project is all about. Category: Around the World | Tagged: ,

Proposing a fishcake shape

| 27 October 2011 Kamaboko is a type of Japanese fishcake with a distinctive loaf shape, usually served sliced thin with dipping sauce such as soy sauce and wasabi or as a topping for noodles. It is also the shape of the newly proposed ILC tunnel design for an Asian mountain site. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

Globetrotters made of niobium

| 13 October 2011 The European XFEL X-ray laser in Hamburg will use accelerator modules of the newest generation. These high-tech devices are operated using superconducting technology at temperatures similar to those in outer space. The concept was developed and brought to practical application by the international TESLA collaboration, led by DESY. Category: Around the World | Tagged: ,

Spanish journey to the heart of matter

| 6 October 2011 With the news of superluminous neutrinos in the air, the residents of Granada, Spain were primed and ready to learn more about the strange world of particles from François Richard, who gave a public lecture during the week of this year’s international workshop on linear colliders.

From Fermilab Today: Staff and users celebrated the Tevatron’s last beam – Sept. 30

6 October 2011 The Tevatron again and again did the impossible. It was the world’s first superconducting synchrotron. It required the development of the world’s most intense, consistent source of antiprotons. It eventually operated 300 times beyond its original design capabilities.

Light through the wall – take 2

| 15 September 2011 DESY’s ALPS experiment aims high by searching low, looking for lightweight particles in the low-energy range. The lightweight particles could clue us into the nature of dark matter or dark energy, and ALPS is being upgraded to make more precise measurements than it could before.

Understanding electron beam halos

| 8 September 2011 The halo of an electron beam does not make it angelic. It only adds to the beam's messy profile, making more work for physicists like Jefferson Lab’s Pavel Evtushenko, who was recently awarded funding for five years to look into developing high-range dynamics beam diagnostics that could help clean up electron beams.
