Ichinoseki-eki: get on board the ILC train!

Image: Ichinoseki city | 17 April 2014 If you ever come to the Kitakami region and visit the ILC candidate site in Japan, you may well stop or change over at Ichinoseki station (Ichinoseki-eki). Since a few weeks, local people and the visitors can view an ILC booth in the station, providing information about the ILC project and candidate site. Read more...

Support around the Kitakami site

6 February 2014 The Kitakami region in the north of Japan in Iwate prefecture is a potential site for the ILC in Japan, as recommended by the ILC site evaluation committee of Japan on 23 August 2013. And the region is clearly proud of this recommendation. The towns that would be the neighbours of the ILC if it was built there boast banners on official buildings and billboards along the roads, local shops have small banners on their tills, hotel clerks wear fan buttons and taxis sport bumper stickers – all in support of the ILC. Pictured are an advertising column outside Ichinoseki station and a banner at Mizusawa-Esashi station in the city Oshu. Read more about the field trip of the communications team to the Kitakami site in upcoming issues of LC NewsLine. View other photos Category: Image of the week | Tagged: ,

Senior vice-minister of science of Japan visits CERN

Image: CERN | 23 January 2014 One hundred metres under Swiss roads and fields, Yoshitaka Sakurada, Senior Vice Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, was pleased to discover the Japanese flag proudly displayed on an inner triplet magnet, one of the Japanese contributions to the Large Hadron Collider LHC at CERN. Guided in the LHC by LCC Director Lyn Evans and Asian Regional Director Akira Yamamoto, Sakurada and his team visited the tunnel and the ATLAS experiment, two examples of how international collaborations can achieve great things for science.

Numbers of the year

19 December 2013 A picture says more than a thousand words, the old saying goes. But what about a number? A total of 2400 people signed the ILC Technical Design Report this year. They come from 392 institutes in 48 countries. While not yet in the realm of authors of an active experiment - the author number for recently published papers of the ATLAS collaboration, for example, is 2939 - the long list of names and institutes demonstrate both the past and present commitment to the project and an interest in future commitment.

First full-size ILC cryomodule assembled at KEK’s STF test facility

Image: Nobuko Kobayashi | 5 December 2013 The image shows the assembly work of the cold mass for an ILC cryomodule in the superconducting rf test facility (STF) at KEK. Since the STF tunnel has a limitation for the size of the components to bring in, only half-size modules could be assembled before. STF now is equipped with new assembly facility in the tunnel, and this will be the first full-size ILC cryomodule to be assembled at KEK. This cryomodule will have a beam position monitor and a superconducting quadruple magnet in the centre, planned to be completed in December. In January, scientists will connect another half-size cryomodule, and start the cooling test in June.

A physicist walks into a rice paddy…

24 October 2013 The Linear Collider Collaboration management team visited the recommended site in the Kitakami mountains last week. Surrounded by local journalists, including several camera teams, they inspected the area that might one day host the International Linear Collider. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: ,

Stairway study

| 10 October 2013 After publishing the physics and detector chapters for the CLIC Conceptual Design Report organised only through working groups on various different study topics and detector R&D projects, the CLIC physics and detector community has spent the last months putting a new organisation in place: the CLIC detector and physics study. So far, 19 institutes have joined the study that is hosted at CERN. Frank Simon, MPI Munich, was elected as the chair of the Institute Board and Lucie Linssen as the first spokesperson. At their meeting at CERN last week, some 50 representatives from the various institutes met at CERN to discuss progress on physics simulations and detector development.

From symmetry magazine: Scientists look to next decades in US particle physics

Image: Reidar Hahn, Fermilab | 8 August 2013 From the output of the "Snowmass" meeting, US particle physicists will chart a path to answering some of science’s most intriguing questions. More than 600 particle physicists from nearly 100 universities and laboratories came together on the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis campus to enumerate the field's most pressing scientific questions and contemplate the experiments needed to answer them.

Tunnel vision

| 13 June 2013 During the ECFA LC2013 workshop that took place a the end of May at DESY in Hamburg, the LC management, civil engineering and machine-detector interface experts visited the tunnel of the future European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser XFEL - a week before construction was officially finished. DESY and the European XFEL celebrated the completion of the construction work with a ceremony, atmospheric lights and music in the new tunnel. Watch the slideshow.
