The International Linear Collider: Gateway to the Quantum Universe

| 15 February 2007 In addition to the technical reports released last week in Beijing that describe the reference design for the ILC, we also published in draft form a very attractive and informative companion document... Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Report from Beijing: The ILC Reference Design Report

| 8 February 2007 The GDEs first major goal was to define the basic parameters and layout for the ILC and document them in a Baseline Configuration Document (BCD). We achieved this at the first GDE meeting held at INFN, Frascati, Italy, in December 2005. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The Evolving ILC Design: Push-Pull Detector Arrangement

| 1 February 2007 The full realization of the scientific potential of the ILC argues for the construction and operation of two complementary detectors by two international collaborations. (This statement comes from a chapter of the soon to be released ILC Detector Concept Report (DCR)) Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The Machine Advisory Committee Reviews the ILC Reference Design

| 25 January 2007 Our steady march toward completion and release of the ILC Reference Design Report (RDR) continued into the New Year with a Machine Advisory Committee review on 10-12 January. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

EuroTeV and MAC meeting at Daresbury

| 18 January 2007 The holiday period has been a busy time for the GDE. Shortly before Christmas many of us gathered at SLAC to have a first look at the RDR and its costings with some distinguished external reviewers. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Japan HEP Community Promotes a Future Strategy for Particle Physics

| 11 January 2007 Mitsuaki Nozaki, GDE Asian Regional Director, discussed the community-wide consensus on priorities for the future programme in high energy physics in Japan in the Directors Corner of 22 November. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Cost Estimating the ILC Reference Design

| 4 January 2007 One of the most important goals of the ILC Reference Design is to understand enough about costs to provide a reliable indication of the projects scale and as importantly, to provide information and tools that will help guide the engineering design phase.

The Evolving ILC Design: Centralising the Injectors

| 21 December 2006 I report today on another design change that has resulted from our ongoing cost to performance optimisation studies, which we are carrying out before finalising the ILC reference design. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Cost Optimisation of Wigglers for the ILC Damping Rings

| 14 December 2006 One of the key technical components of the ILC damping rings is the wiggler magnet, a device consisting essentially of a series of dipole magnets of alternating polarity. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Parameters for the Linear Collider – An Update

| 7 December 2006 As we explore the possible trade-offs to make the ILC Reference Design as cost effective as possible, we have needed sharper definitions for some of the stated parameters, making us consider alternatives. -- By Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
