Media advisory: International Linear Collider to take next step

6 December 2012 The Global Design Effort and ILC Research Directorate, the international planning team for the International Linear Collider (ILC), will hand over the draft of the ILC Technical Design Report (TDR) to its internal oversight board ILC Steering Committee (ILCSC) in an official ceremony to be held in Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan on 15 December 2012 at 14:00 h JST. This marks the first step towards the completion of the final design for the ILC project.

Geometries of a future Higgs factory

21 November 2012 Last week at Fermilab, a select group of experts discussed whether an accelerator to purely exploit the science around the Higgs(-like) particle found at the LHC should be linear, circular or something completely different. The participants compared the options of a linear 250-GeV electron-positron collider and a circular 125 GeV electron-positron collider from the accelerator point of view as well as physics requirements for a Higgs Factory and other options for a Higgs Factory, including a muon collider and a gamma-gamma collider. More about the workshop and an article in symmetry magazine.

Strip teaser

| 1 November 2012 A team of two scientists and four students from Shinshu University of Japan and Kyungpook National University of Korea have just packed up their cables, laptops and scintillator strips and left a test beam at DESY with many interesting results in their luggage. They tested the scintillator-strip-based electromagnetic calorimeter (ScECAL), one of the potential layers of a future ILC detector. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , , ,

Which way to the ILC, please?

18 October 2012 Drivers stuck in a traffic jam in Ichinoseki city are more likely to wonder about the mysteries of the Universe than about the latest Hollywood movie - at least if they take in the billboards at the side of the road. Japan's Iwate prefecture in the Tohoku region in the north of the country boasts a road sign underlining the region's interest in hosting the ILC. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , ,

Getting it all straight

| 4 October 2012 Linear collider detector experts get it straight - a vision of the XFEL tunnel that is. CLIC detector engineers from CERN visited DESY last week to discuss detector challenges such as earthquake stability, alignment, assembly planning and the construction of the detector's magnet yoke with their colleagues from the ILC's ILD detector. They also visited the tunnel for the European XFEL that is currently being constructed. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , ,

Chancellor Merkel’s first cavity

| 27 September 2012 Chancellor Angela Merkel visited DESY on 19 September for a hall baptism: the experimental hall of DESY's light source PETRA III is now officially named Max von Laue, after the discoverer of diffraction of X-rays. DESY DG Helmut Dosch presents the German chancellor (who was a physicist before she became a politician) with a miniature accelerator cavity. In her speech, Merkel stressed the importance of fundamental research, freedom of science and the importance to communicate results. Check DESY's press release for more links, the chancellor's full speech (in German) and images. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , ,

Korea-US Collaboration Center for Accelerator Science opens at Fermilab

| 20 September 2012 Fermilab has a new collaboration centre: on 27 August the Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and the Rare Isotope Science Project of Korea's Institute for Basic Science opened the Korea-US Collaboration Center for Accelerator Science.

European community discusses the future of particle physics

| 13 September 2012 LHC upgrades, linear colliders, muon colliders, neutrino experiments, even theory - the list of projects to discuss on the strategy list was long. The nearly 500 participants at CERN Council's Open Symposium on European Strategy for Particle Physics did however manage to cover all of those and more. A briefing book will summarise the results of the discussions. Read the CERN Press Release

I found the Higgs!

| 6 September 2012 Two little visitors at show off the souvenirs they received at KEK's open house, held on Sunday, 2 September. The girl on the right was very happy to find a "Higgs" in her toy capsule given away at the ILC exhibit. Visitor numbers have increased dramatically from last year's open house, probably due to a special kind of Higgs mechanism that attracts the general public to particle physics.

Cavities at your fingertips

| 30 August 2012 Are you giving a talk about the ILC, cavities, S(C)RF or linac design and are looking for images that haven't been used a million times? A 17-image series following the life of a cavity from niobium ingot to finished cryomodule is now available on the Interactions image bank. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , ,
