The ultimate collider gift list

| 10 December 2015 Do you know a linear collider enthusiast and would you like to surprise him or her with a gift? Or are you a linear collider enthusiast and as such too busy to go gift shopping? Then agonise no more. We’ve done some extensive research and proudly present a list of some of the best linear-collider-related gifts available online… Category: Feature | Tagged:

Future accelerator scientists’ fulfilling twelve days

| 12 November 2015 Counting down to the ski season, still off-season Whistler, in British Columbia, Canada, was an ideal place for student to concentrate on the study for the 9th International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders.

Linear Collider Collaboration published Progress Report for the ILC

| 29 October 2015 The ILC Progress Report is a document outlining the technical progress after the publication of the Technical Design Report (TDR) in 2013. It contains the information regarding the progress in civil engineering studies, accelerator hardware design/development updates, accelerator system layout updates, integration/test facilities to be prepared for “hub-laboratory functioning, and updated project implementation plan, and further preparatory work.

From KEK: KEK and the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) signed a Project Arrangement concerning high energy physics.

15 October 2015 On October 6, 2015, KEK and the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) signed a Project Arrangement concerning high energy physics. A signing ceremony was held at the American Ambassador's Residence in the presence of H.E. Ms. Caroline Kennedy, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of U.S.A and H.E. Mr. Hakubun Shimomura, then Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). The history of the U.S. - Japan cooperation program in the field of high energy physics has lasted for more than 35 years, with distinguished research outcomes and many talented researchers fostered through the project. H.E. Ms. Kennedy and H.E. Mr. Shimomura expressed admiration for fruitful cooperation between the U. S. and Japan on science and technology, mentioning meaningfulness for continuing the U. S. - Japan cooperation program in the field of high energy physics for the future. With the conclusion of this Project Arrangement between KEK and DOE, further development of cooperation in research is expected among the U.S. and Japanese institutes in the field.

And vertically down it goes

| 1 October 2015 In our issue on 9 July, NewsLine introduced the change management process that oversees changes to the machine’s overall design. Today, we look in detail at one of the change requests that was put forward and went through: vertical shafts (as opposed to inclined tunnels) for the interaction region.

Here’s one we made earlier

| 17 September 2015 Particle detectors need to be at the forefront of technology in order to capture particle collisions in great detail and quick succession. R&D projects for upgrades of existing detectors or future ones are busy around the world, and sometimes the technologies developed and studied in these projects can help out in others. LC NewsLine has two examples. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Expert puts report into context

| 3 September 2015 The summary of discussions published by the ILC Advisory Group to Japan’s funding agency MEXT is subject of a lot of discussion within the community. Why was it published now, what does it mean? NewsLine spoke to Satoru Yamashita from the University of Tokyo to find out more. Read also this week’s Director’s Corner.

And Still They Will Collide

| 20 August 2015 Is the beam delivery system delivering? Ten years ago, at the Global Design Effort’s formative meeting in Snowmass, Colorado, ILC communicator Perrine Royole-Degieux interviewed Phil Burrows, then professor at Queen Mary University of London, about the beam delivery system. How has the home straight where the particle bunches get squeezed, focused and brought to collision, evolved in a decade? Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

The Big Milestone Timeline

From symmetry: One Higgs is the loneliest number

6 August 2015 When physicists discovered the Higgs boson in 2012, they declared the Standard Model of particle physics complete; they had finally found the missing piece of the particle puzzle. And yet, many questions remain about the basic components of the universe, including: Did we find the one and only type of Higgs boson? Or are there more?
