from CERN Bulletin: Detectors on the drawing board

27 October 2011 Linear collider detector developers inside and outside CERN are tackling the next generation of detector technology. While their focus has centred on high-energy linear collider detectors, their innovative concepts and designs will be applicable to any future detector. Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

Onward and upward into the terascale

| 20 October 2011 Until the Large Hadron Collider tells scientists where in the energy frontier to dig for new physics, ILC researchers are preparing for eventualities. Should new physics be found to reside in a range higher than the ILC’s current reach, scientists have a energy-boosting plan in their back pocket. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

CERN balances linear collider studies

| 13 October 2011 Steinar Stapnes has assumed the title of CERN’s Linear Collider Study Leader, a newly configured position that acknowledges a call for cooperation between the ILC and the laboratory’s well established Compact Linear Collider study. His new post requires him to perform a balancing act that involves two collider concepts, roughly a hundred researchers and a finite number of Swiss francs. Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

Going with the particle flow

| 15 September 2011 Resolved that pictures of particle jets don’t have to be fuzzy or gnarled, scientists developed the particle flow algorithm, a paradigm for effectively teasing out each particle’s energy from another’s. To make it work, researchers expanded the tracking capabilities of the detector model, enabling it to measure energies with higher precision. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

The pursuit of polarised positrons

| 8 September 2011 Researchers gather in Beijing to discuss the latest and future research on positron sources for a next-generation linear collider at this year’s POSIPOL workshop. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

ILC positron collaboration meeting held in Beijing

| 1 September 2011 Scientists working on the positron source for a future linear collider gather in Beijing to discuss R&D and accelerator design. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

Welcome back, PCMAG!

| 25 August 2011 The superconducting magnet PCMAG came back to KEK on 10 August after four years of use in an experiment at the DESY test beam facility. PCMAG, which stands for persistent-current superconducting magnet, will be upgraded to be a coolant-free magnet. Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

from CERN: LHC experiments present latest results at Mumbai conference

25 August 2011 Results from the ATLAS and CMS collaborations, presented at the biennial Lepton-Photon conference in Mumbai, India, show that the elusive Higgs particle, if it exists, is running out of places to hide. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

From SLAC Today: Will the Real Higgs Boson Please Stand Up?

11 August 2011 How can a low-energy experiment like SLAC’s PEP II B Factory, originally built to investigate differences between matter and antimatter and no longer even taking data, compete with a monster matter masher like the LHC that was built, in a large part, to find the Higgs?

The fruits of industry

| 11 August 2011 The R&D of industry is as vital to the ILC project as research performed in the laboratory. The Global Design Effort has formed close relationships with multiple industry vendors, fostering innovation and reducing costs. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,
