R&D Board

| 2 February 2006 A decade or so ago, the thought of building a TeV scale linear collider was pretty much just a romantic notion. The long extrapolations from present accelerators and from proven technologies were daunting. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

RDR Kick-off

| 26 January 2006 Our major theme for the past six months has been to establish a basic configuration for the International Linear Collider. The GDE process got underway last August at Snowmass and culminated in our approval of a strawman configuration at a meeting in Frascati, Italy in December. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

InDiCo – Integrated Digital Conferencing

| 19 January 2006 One of the biggest challenges for our dispersed GDE effort is communications. This was apparent from the beginning and, as a result, I have continually emphasized the need for us to employ the most advanced electronic communications and web tools.

Design Cost Board

| 12 January 2006 At Frascati, I created three boards that will become the centerpiece of the GDE organization as we now move forward from having determined the baseline for the ILC towards doing the technical design for a construction project. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Happy New Year

| 5 January 2006 As this New Year begins, I would like to briefly remark on our progress and status to date, as we begin to undertake a new set of tasks and goals for 2006. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Change Control Board

| 15 December 2005 Last week at Frascati, we successfully established the baseline configuration that will serve as the basis for the ILC reference design and costing to be carried out next year. There was consensus on most decisions. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Frascati News

| 8 December 2005 This week the GDE is in Frascati, Italy. We have come together for what is only our second face-to-face meeting, following our kick-off meeting as part of the Snowmass workshop just over three months ago. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

One Tunnel or Two

| 1 December 2005 Should we build the ILC using one underground tunnel? Or should we build it using two adjacent tunnels, one containing the support instrumentation and the other containing the accelerator? Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Damping Ring Recommendation

| 23 November 2005 Reaching the luminosity goals of the ILC will be an enormous challenge. It will require producing nanometer scale beam spots at the collision point and a crucial element in achieving this will be to damp the beams that come from the electron and positron sources to have ultra-low emittance.

Progress with the BCD

| 17 November 2005 Today I am going to give an update on our progress towards the Baseline Configuration Document, BCD. The major goal of the GDE this calendar year is to produce a baseline configuration for the ILC and to document it by the end of 2005. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,
