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: ,

Funding Agencies for the Linear Collider

| 10 November 2005 All of us recognize that the ILC will be too expensive to be undertaken by one country or even probably, by one region. For that reason, ground-breaking steps have been taken to internationalize the effort from the very beginning. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Cape Town

| 3 November 2005 Last week, I visited Cape Town, South Africa with Jonathan Dorfan, a native of Cape Town, and Shin-ichi Kurokawa. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Positron Production

| 27 October 2005 Last 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Electron Source

| 20 October 2005 As I have discussed the past couple of weeks, the baseline ILC design will be guided and flow from a set of overall requirements. These requirements began from the science goals or requirements that were then translated into technical requirements for an accelerator. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:
