Progress on ILC machine-detector interfaces through the detector LOI process

| 14 May 2009 Compared to most accelerators, the ILC will have a much more intimate and complex set of interfaces between the machine and the detectors (MDI). Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Garbincius joins GDE Executive Committee

| 7 May 2009 (...) The heart of the GDE organisation and central 'engine' is an Executive Committee (EC) that works very closely with me on carrying out all important policy, organisational and operational matters. Today, I am pleased to announce that Peter Garbincius of Fermilab has joined the EC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

New cavity production facility for future industrialisation

| 30 April 2009 (...) One of the most important plans for the ILC project is to build a new superconducting radiofrequency (rf) cavity production facility on KEK premises, aiming to gain experiences for industrialisation and future mass-production. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

FLASH – ILC-like beam tests at DESY

| 23 April 2009 Before we can develop our own test systems that use ILC modules, we are making a series of important tests using the FLASH free-electron laser linac at DESY. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Gran Sasso National Laboratory survives the Italian earthquake

| 16 April 2009 Last week a major earthquake struck Italy about 10 kilometres from the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (Gran Sasso National Laboratory). The inhabitants of the city of L'Aquila nearby the laboratory suffered numerous injuries and loss of lives, as well as extensive damage to buildings, homes and historic structures. (...) The Gran Sasso Laboratory, the most ambitious deep underground research facility in the world, suffered no significant damage, and for that we can be thankful.

Technological Benefits from ILC R&D

| 9 April 2009 We are pursuing a very ambitious R&D programme in order to develop the technologies that will be required to build the International Linear Collider. Recognising that important technological benefits are resulting from our ILC R&D programme, the Funding Agencies for Large Colliders, a group composed of representatives of national science funding agencies worldwide, commissioned a study.

Neutrinos in Venice

| 2 April 2009 Last month I had the pleasure of participating in the "XIII International Workshop on Neutrino Telescopes" at the "Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti" in Venice Italy. (...) This year's meeting was especially interesting to me in how it demonstrated the relationships between accelerator and non-accelerator physics and how much closer astrophysics is becoming to particle physics.

Renewing links with superconducting cavity manufacturers

| 26 March 2009 This guest Director's Corner is about our effort to open new relationships and partnerships with the (cavity manufacturing) companies, worldwide. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Science in the Obama era

| 19 March 2009 We will restore science to its rightful place, said President Barack Obama in his inauguration address. That statement has raised the hopes of the scientific community, and actions that have followed have further encouraged us to believe that we are entering a new era in the US that will have increased priority for the support of science. (...) It is worthwhile anticipating how all the changes will impact US science, high-energy physics, in particular, and finally on our efforts towards the ILC.

The ILC damping rings and electron cloud mitigation

| 12 March 2009 Today's ILC Newsline is a thematic issue focusing on aspects of electron cloud mitigation for the ILC and for other future accelerators. One of the highest-priority goals of the ILC R&D programme during the Technical Design Phase is to demonstrate that the proposed mitigation techniques for the electron clouds in the damping rings will reduce the levels so that the clouds will not impact the emittance performance of the positron damping ring. --By Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,
