Critical electron cloud studies at Cornell

| 5 June 2008 Last week we reported on the beginning of our important experimental programme on electron cloud effects, using the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR) accelerator at Cornell University. This is one of our highest-priority R&D goals during the ILC Technical Design Phase 1 (TDP-1) and is aimed at understanding the magnitude of the problem for the ILC positron damping rings and the effectiveness of our proposed mitigation techniques.

Establishing an Asian science communication network

| 29 May 2008 ... if we want to promote the International Linear Collider, we need to initiate much broader campaign for physics or basic science in general. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Common fund approved by FALC Resource Group

| 22 May 2008 The ILC Global Design Effort is made up primarily of in-kind R&D contributions done in the partner countries, mostly at the large laboratories that are developing the technologies and design towards a real ILC machine. Our primary mission in the GDE is to coordinate and guide this programme. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Globalising R&D

| 15 May 2008 The coordination of superconducting radiofrequency R&D is central to the Global Design Effort's mission of bringing the design for the ILC to the point we can make a robust proposal to our governments. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

Third International Accelerator School

| 8 May 2008 Recruiting and training the next generation of accelerator physicists is crucial to the future of the field. Accelerator schools play a central role in introducing potential accelerator experts to the science and in providing advanced education. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The art of decision making: STF phase-2 cavity choice

| 1 May 2008 One of the more difficult problems in conducting large-scale science projects is the process of decision making. The ability to make good decisions in a timely way can be an enormous challenge and can differentiate good management from not-so-good management. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The value of science

| 24 April 2008 What is your science worth? A question I have recently heard raised during many over-coffee discussions. The question is of course rhetorical: none of us can really answer it. But the fact that it is being asked at all is part of a reaction to the GDE management's policy to make the cost of the project a central focus of the Technical Design Phase.

The GDE to meet in Russia

| 17 April 2008 The next general meeting for the GDE will be at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, Russia. JINR is a large international laboratory with a long history in accelerator-related science. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Implementing “internal” reviews for the ILC Technical Design Phase

| 10 April 2008 Last week, the new Accelerator Advisory Panel (AAP) was introduced in NewsLine. This week, I follow up with a description of its role and why I believe it will improve the quality of our R&D and design efforts. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The ILC in Osaka

| 3 April 2008 Last week, the 63rd Annual Meeting of the Physical Society of Japan was held on the Kinki University campus in Osaka, where I participated in a special symposium dedicated to the International Linear Collider. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,
