Stimulus funds for SCRF at Fermilab

| 20 August 2009 (...) The announcement by the U.S. Department of Energy that it will provide $52.7M of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds to develop the Fermilab (SCRF) programme is a very welcome development. -- By Barry Barish, Bob Kephart Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

ALCPG09 in Albuquerque

| 13 August 2009 Our next (...) general meeting, organised by the American Linear Collider Physics Group (ALCPG), will be held at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico from 29 September through 2 October 2009. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Particle Physics at Academia Sinica in Taiwan

| 6 August 2009 Last month, I had the opportunity to spend time at the Academia Sinica in Taiwan where I chaired a review of their Institute of Physics, which has an impressive high-energy physics programme. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Global effort for high-gradient ILC SCRF cavities

| 30 July 2009 I would like to thank Barry Barish (...) for the opportunity to write his column and expand on the efforts for an area of the Main Linac and Superconducting Radiofrequency (ML-SCRF) technology and the tasks ahead of us. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Accelerator Design and Integration: Considerations for distributing high-level RF power for a single tunnel configuration

| 23 July 2009 ... One of the most complex and difficult changes under consideration is changing from the RDR's double-tunnel to a single-tunnel configuration. A key problem to solve for a single-tunnel configuration is how to deliver the high-level radiofrequency power to the cryomodules. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Students admitted to LC accelerator school

| 16 July 2009 Preparations continue toward our "Fourth International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders" to be held from 7 to 18 September in Beijing, China. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Improvements in high-gradient ILC SCRF cavities

| 9 July 2009 ... we plan to set an average operating gradient of 31.5 MV per metre for the 14560 cavities mounted in the 1680 cryomodules of a 500-GeV ILC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

A picture is worth a thousand words

| 2 July 2009 Today, in less than 1000 words, I announce the addition of a new member of the Global Design Effort Executive Committee (EC), Jean-Pierre Delahaye of CERN. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The other kind of particle acceleration

| 25 June 2009 The ILC, when built, will represent the latest in technology innovation and will be a global effort involving world-class talent. The Accelerator Design and Integration meeting held at DESY a few weeks ago is an example of the design process in action. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

A step at a time

| 18 June 2009 Last week we held the first ever joint meeting of the GDE Executive Committee and the CLIC Extended Steering Committee. This meeting at CERN represented another step in bringing the CLIC and ILC efforts closer together. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
