Progress and plans for ILC R&D at JLab

| 16 October 2008 Jefferson Laboratory (JLab) in Newport News, Virginia is a major DoE laboratory for Nuclear Physics. The laboratory has a pioneering 6 GeV electron accelerator that is based on superconducting RF accelerating technology. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Preparations for S1-global at the STF at KEK

| 9 October 2008 Research and development on superconducting radiofrequency (rf) cavities, cryomodules and operational units is at the core of our programme to develop the technologies, the best possible machine design and an implementation plan for the ILC.

Achieving tiny beam spot sizes with ATF2

| 2 October 2008 The ILC's beams pass through each accelerating element once before they are directed to collide with the beam travelling in the opposite direction. This poses the two main challenges in the ILC: to achieve a very high gradient in the accelerator in order to make it as short as possible while achieving the desired energy, and to achieve very small beam spots to maximise the probability of collisions by the crossing beams.

It is that time of the year again

| 25 September 2008 Given the arcane nature of the US budgetary system, I will describe this process, since the resources available to us, or the lack thereof, serve to drive the scope of the US ILC R&D effort. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

The Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge Laboratory

| 18 September 2008 The recently completed Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) (...) project promises to move neutron science into a new era and both the execution of the project and some key technologies are of important to our efforts towards the International Linear Collider.

US National Science and Technology Summit

| 11 September 2008 The US government policy for support of science and technology is being developed around the 2007 America Competes Act , a consensus policy to strengthen long-term US economic competitiveness through science and technology. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

High Energy Physics in Philadelphia – ICHEP 08

| 4 September 2008 The International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP), once affectionately called the Rochester Conference, is considered central in our field. It takes place every second year. This year the meeting was held at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Uniting Asian collaboration

| 28 August 2008 Since the establishment of Global Design Effort in 2005, I have been a member of Executive Committee as Accelerator Leader. In August 2008, I earned a new title, Asian Regional Director, taking over the job from Mitsuaki Nozaki. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

FALC meets in Rome

| 21 August 2008 The Funding Agencies for Large Colliders held their semi-annual meeting in Rome at INFN headquarters on 14 July 2008. The meeting was notable in that it marked the FALC release of their first annual report and the appointment of a new chairperson, Pierre Coulombe. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Spain’s increasing involvement in large international science

| 14 August 2008 The modern era in Spanish particle physics was marked by Spain rejoining CERN in 1983, and the country's investments and programme in particle physics have continued to grow and thrive ever since. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,
