Sokendai Linear Collider Accelerator School

| 29 June 2006 Not long after I became GDE Director, and even before I had recruited our initial design team, I gave a plenary talk on my ideas and plans for the ILC design effort at the Particle Accelerator Conference PAC05 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

How Many Magnets Make a Linear Collider

| 22 June 2006 Magnets that steer beams around a ring-shaped accelerator, that focus particle beams and that make various optical corrections are key to building such high-energy particle accelerators. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Able was I ere I saw Elba

| 15 June 2006 This famous palindrome was purportedly spoken by Napoleon when referring to his first sighting of Elba, the island where the British exiled him in 1814. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Future Particle Physics in Asia

| 8 June 2006 High energy physics is a field of international collaborative efforts, both historically and today. Many non-Asian scientists from around the world are currently participating in the KEKB and neutrino experiments at KEK. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

FALC Grapples with its Governance

| 1 June 2006 Last week I attended the meeting of the Funding Agencies for the Linear Collider -- FALC -- at the INFN Headquarters in a historic building nestled in the small twisty streets near the Pantheon and Piazza Navona in the heart of beautiful old Rome.

Einsteins Telescope

| 25 May 2006 One of the most intriguing features of the ILC is its potential to act as a telescope to "explore energies a trillion times that of the accelerator itself, in the ultrahighenergy realm where physicists believe that all of natures forces become one."

New Look and New Logo

| 18 May 2006 Today we inaugurate a new look for the ILC website, as well as a new logo. We have strived to make our website as functional as possible, while also making it attractive. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Baseline Damping Rings

| 11 May 2006 One of the more difficult decisions we made last fall was which damping ring option to choose for our baseline. No recommendation came out of the Snowmass Workshop and our damping ring working group continued to study the question through much of the fall. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

DOE and NSF Reviewers See Progress in ILC Americas Program

| 4 May 2006 The first review of the US R&D program for the International Linear Collider by the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation was held at Fermilab from 4-6 April 2006. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Elementary Particle Physics in the 21st Century

| 27 April 2006 Creating a roadmap for the future of a field has become a very important planning tool in research fields that require large instruments, like astronomy and particle physics. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
