Unplugged: new magnet concept could lower CLIC’s power bill

| 3 March 2016 Spirits lifted by a motivating talk by CERN's new Director-General, scientists attending the recent CLIC workshop say that there’s a lot that’s happening in the world of the Compact Linear Collider study. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

Here’s your physics case, once and for all

| 11 February 2016 Dear colleagues, this one is for you. All those paper writing thesis completing report submitting physicists out there: here comes a new central paper for your list of references and your reading list. It provides a comprehensive physics case for the e+e- linear collider and puts all the topics and ideas from theory, collider searches, astronomy in context to each other. It’s been published in the open-access peer-reviewed European Physical Journal C (EPJC). Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

A dream comes true

| 11 February 2016 The direct detection of gravitational waves, announced today by the LIGO-VIRGO scientific collaborations, marks another great day in the history of fundamental research. It is the product of years of preparation, data taking and hard scientific work and provides just as many answers as new questions to physics. One man has witnessed the project’s history and its breakthrough first hand and provides his personal view of the story (and what it means for other science projects): former ILC Director Barry Barish.

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.
