From CERN: CERN congratulates François Englert and Peter W. Higgs on the award of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics

10 October 2013 CERN congratulates François Englert and Peter W. Higgs on the award of the Nobel prize in physics “for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.” The announcement by the ATLAS and CMS experiments took place on 4 July last year.

ILC project is entering next phase

| 12 September 2013 A committee of Japanese scientists has just recommended Kitakami mountains as a candidate construction site for the ILC. The project now has to go through international negotiations, which should take at least a few years. Meanwhile, on 28 August, Japan’s Ministry in charge of science policy (MEXT) delivered its first official national budget request for the ILC. The ILC project has now entered into the next stage.

Press release: Next-generation particle accelerator is ready for construction

13 June 2013 Tokyo, Geneva, Chicago – 12 June 2013. A five-volume report containing the blueprint for a future particle physics project, the International Linear Collider (ILC), was published today. In three consecutive ceremonies in Asia, Europe and the Americas, the authors of the Technical Design Report for the International Linear Collider, a next-generation particle collider to complement and advance beyond the physics of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, officially handed the report over to the international oversight board for projects in particle physics, the International Committee for Future Accelerators ICFA. The Technical Design Report presents the latest, most technologically advanced and most thoroughly scrutinised design for the ILC. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

From Symmetry Magazine: The cherry pie collider

| 16 May 2013 What’s the next step in particle colliders? Symmetry takes a trip into the kitchen pantry to find out. Don't miss the video that (nearly) explains it all, using the analogy of protons vs cherry pies that was first brought by Hitoshi Murayama, deputy director of the Linear Collider Collaboration, during a recent press conference. Enjoy! Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

A spin-off of ILC technology – already

| 4 April 2013 On 15 March, scientists working on the Quantum Beam Technology Program at KEK’s superconducting RF test facility (STF) confirmed the successful generation of X-rays using Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS) with superconducting radiofrequency (SCRF) acceleration technology. This is the world’s first successful implementation of ICS X-ray sources with SCRF technology. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

From CERN: New results indicate that particle discovered at CERN is a Higgs boson

21 March 2013 Geneva, 14 March 2013. At the Moriond Conference today, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations at CERN1’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) presented preliminary new results that further elucidate the particle discovered last year. Having analysed two and a half times more data than was available for the discovery announcement in July, they find that the new particle is looking more and more like a Higgs boson, the particle linked to the mechanism that gives mass to elementary particles. It remains an open question, however, whether this is the Higgs boson of the Standard Model of particle physics, or possibly the lightest of several bosons predicted in some theories that go beyond the Standard Model. Finding the answer to this question will take time. Category: Feature | Tagged: ,
