What drives the development of technology

| 25 November 2009 (...) Taking all ILC cavity tests into account, a globally-based pattern of achievement and success emerges, giving confidence that we will meet or even exceed the forward looking-goal we set for ourselves at Snowmass in 2005. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge

| 19 November 2009 (...) At the American Linear Collider Physics Group workshop at Albuquerque (ALCPG09), we had a very informative presentation by Stuart Henderson of Oak Ridge on "The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) Linac: Performance and Operational Experience." -- By Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Rethinking LHC-ILC connections

| 12 November 2009 The American Linear Collider Physics Group (ALCPG) workshop held in Albuquerque, New Mexico from 29 September to 3 October was one of our large ILC meetings that we hold twice a year... [P]erhaps the most important contribution was a talk given by Michael Peskin, SLAC, with the intriguing title, "Rethinking the LHC - ILC Connection." Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Report on the CLIC workshop

| 5 November 2009 The September ALCPG and ILC meeting in Albuquerque, US, featured a plenary talk on the Compact Linear Collider Study CLIC by Jean-Pierre Delahaye, who gave a very nice description of the CLIC status and plans. (...) Today, I share a few personal observations from the workshop. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Accelerators everywhere – the ILC in context

| 29 October 2009 ...I am... [at] the "Accelerators for America's Future" meeting held in Washington, D.C. and sponsored by the US Department of Energy. The meeting is intended to raise the profile and set the strategy for the future of accelerator physics in the US. The morning's talks have been in turn illuminating, amusing, and infuriating.
