Barry Barish | 12 January 2006At 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.

Barry Barish | 23 November 2005Reaching 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.

Barry Barish | 27 October 2005Last week I discussed the recommendation from Snowmass for the baseline electron source to be used for the linear collider reference design, and today I will briefly discuss the more challenging positron source.
