Students admitted to the fifth Linear Collider accelerator school

| 5 August 2010 We have selected 70 highly qualified students from an increased pool of 276 applications for the 2010 school. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Paris and politics

| 29 July 2010 By governance we mean all the disparate elements required to found a convincing ILC laboratory organisation, with clear aims, transparent and accountable management and supportive governments and funding agencies. It forms an essential part of the overall "Project Implementation Plan"... Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

An animated ILC

| 22 July 2010 Today, we release our first ILC animation, which has been created by Mamoru Horiuchi (aka Rey.Hori) from Japan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Japan to provide funds towards the Super KEKB upgrade

| 15 July 2010 [...] MEXT, the Japanese ministry that supports high-energy physics at KEK, announced that it will appropriate 10 billion yen (around 110 million dollars) towards the upgrade of KEKB over the three years starting this fiscal year. -- Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

The laser and the next 50 years

| 8 July 2010 [...] it is clear that the new laser developments will continue to have an impact on our lives in new and exciting ways, both by opening up new scientific opportunities and in creating new applications to our everyday lives. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the laser

| 1 July 2010 [...] The development of the laser from a fundamental physics discovery to a multibillion-dollar industry and its pervasive and unforeseen impacts on how we live, make a very powerful case for the value of basic research. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Flexibility in the ILC design

| 24 June 2010 In a new large accelerator complex which will take years to get approved and constructed, one must maintain some degree of flexibility in its design as many things can change before a construction start. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Superconducting RF cavity industrialisation

| 17 June 2010 Producing high gradient superconducting radiofrequency (SCRF) cavities that meet our demanding performance goals, are affordable and can be produced by industry represents one of the largest challenges on the way to making a solid project proposal for the ILC. [...] Developing a worldwide capability to produce our cavities in industry represents an enormous challenge - one we need to address now. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The latest ILC technical review

| 10 June 2010 [...] Today, I will report on the latest meeting of the Project Advisory Committee (PAC) that reviews both the accelerator and detector technical efforts and reports to the International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC). This recent meeting was particularly important, because at this time we are dealing with differing opinions regarding the proposed baseline changes for the ILC technical design.

Attracting women into science

| 3 June 2010 [...] I was pleased that the 2010 National Science Board's Public Service Award was given to the "Expanding Your Horizons Network," an organisation that is dedicated to educating young school girls about careers in math, science and engineering. I was doubly pleased that one of our own ILC Global Design Effort members, Cherrill Spencer, who has served the network for so many years, was part of the team that came to Washington DC to receive this award. -- Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
