SiD optimisation group moves towards new detector model after PNNL meeting

| 20 October 2016 SiD, one of the two planned detectors for the ILC, decided at the end of last year to change their simulation and reconstruction framework. At a recent meeting at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in the US the optimisation group got their heads round simulations, detector and physics studies in the new software framework. This is an important step towards SiD's technical design report. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , ,

From symmetry: You keep using that physics word

6 October 2016 Physics can often seem inconceivable. It’s a field of strange concepts and special terms. Language often fails to capture what’s really going on within the math and theories. And to make things even more complicated, physics has repurposed a number of familiar English words. Much like Americans in England, folks from beyond the realm of physics may enter to find themselves in a dream within a dream, surrounded by a sea of words that sound familiar but are still somehow completely foreign. Not to worry! Symmetry is here to help guide you with this list of words that acquire a new meaning when spoken by physicists.

From Symmetry Magazine: Small cat, big science

| 22 September 2016 Hello Kitty is known throughout Japan as the poster girl (poster cat?) of kawaii, a segment of pop culture built around all things cute. But recently she took on a new job: representing the proposed International Linear Collider.

Hello Kitty meets ILC

and | 11 August 2016 Why is Hello Kitty wearing glasses? What is this L doing on her bow? And what mean all those symbols behind her back? These kinds of questions are expected regarding the newest Hello Kitty x Science line. But why? Read more about how this cute small Kitty got in touch with science and about her impact at a huge High Energy Physics conference. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

In the light of new accelerators

| 22 July 2016 Did you know that more than 1000 superconducting radiofrequency cavities for roughly 150 cryomodules are needed for accelerator projects which are seeking approval at the moment? And it’s more than 24000 cavities if we add the ILC and the FCC. The TESLA Technology Collaboration meeting is one of the key events to attract SCRF experts from all the world The latest one was held at the beginning of the month, at CEA Saclay, France.

7 July 2016 Better together: For the first time two technological prototypes of the high-granularity calorimeters for a future ILC detector tested together with particle beams at CERN in a combined mode. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

The new ILD structure

| 23 June 2016 The International Large Detector (ILD) is one of two detector concepts which are under study for the International Linear Collider. ILD started about ten years ago with the merger of two different concept groups. The concept group developed a detector design which was documented in the ILC’s Technical Design Report TDR. Over the past few months ILD has given itself a new structure, to address the future challenges of the ILC project. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

How great does the ‘Great Wall’ have to be?

| 9 June 2016 A long-standing issue that had kept civil engineers and accelerator developers busy has now been resolved: the design option of the loaf-shaped Kamaboko tunnel will have a separating wall of 1.5 metres. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

Spain and Japan strengthen industrial collaboration toward the ILC

| 26 May 2016 A Spanish Japanese Collaboration in industry and science? Yes, a collaboration which just took another important step to strengthen this relationship at May 13th at the Collaboration Opportunities on Fusion and Accelerator Technologies and Projects workshop at the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo. Tohru Takahshi from Hiroshima University attended this workshop and offers his impressions about the actual developments and relations between Japan and Spain. In his short review of this event he included many details about the speakers, the Spanish Japanese History and of course a short look in further events. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Cool sensors: new silicon detectors have their fridges built in

| 12 May 2016 Silicon-based devices for the detection of charged particles form the core of every modern collider experiment. As position-sensitive devices get thinner and thinner, supports and services must be more and more integrated into the sensor itself. IFIC Valencia, HLL-MPG Munich and Bonn University show the viability and cooling performance of a process that integrates the cooling channels in the active silicon sensor.
