Detector R&D “coopetition” between ILC and CLIC

| 15 December 2011 Though the differences between ILC and CLIC detectors are marked, ILC detector concepts have been shown to be valuable for the machine being designed by its competitor-cooperator, the CLIC design study. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,

Articulating the physics case for the ILC

| 17 November 2011 The ILC Detailed Baseline Design report will contain a chapter that describes the physics opportunities that the ILC will offer. The LHC is bringing us new information about particles in the ILC energy range. But what exactly is the Large Hadron Collider telling us, and what are the implications for the ILC programme? Michael Peskin encourages members of the ILC community to debate this question and contribute to the report. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , ,

Progress made during LCWS11 in Granada

| 20 October 2011 This year's linear collider workshop was a time of fruitful discussion and planning. Key discussions helped shape the near future in the period before the release of the detailed baseline design. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,

Past and future of the Worldwide Study

| 22 September 2011 The groundwork for the Worldwide Study, a global linear collider physics and detector partnership, was laid more than ten years ago. Since then it has been a driving force for coordination and development of physics studies and detector R&D around the world. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,

The impact of ILC detector R&D

| 18 August 2011 Although the actual construction date of the ILC accelerator and its detectors is very uncertain, the impact of the R&D for ILC detectors is very real. Sometimes we tend to overlook the deep impact the work initiated by and carried out within the ILC detector community has already had on the whole particle physics community and beyond.

Important meetings to come, important discussions to happen

| 21 July 2011 The high-energy physics community is gearing up to learn the latest from the world’s large particle colliders, to be presented at conferences this summer. The reports may guide the future efforts of the ILC community coming after the detector community’s detailed baseline design. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , ,

The gift of research rises from the rubble

| 16 June 2011 Hitoshi Yamamoto offers a personal account of his navigation through the chaos brought on by shutdowns of transportation systems, electrical grids and running water immediately following the March earthquake. Amid the confusion, he remained mindful of the work of the ILC, resulting in welcome news for detector research. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , ,

Determining the cost of the ILC detectors

| 19 May 2011 Costing the two ILC detectors more precisely is one of the important activities for the ongoing ILC detector design work, and balancing detector cost and performance depends on the strategy of the detector groups. To learn whether there are differences among them, the groups undertake detailed coordination of their costing methodologies. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , ,

“Crazy” years await us – or maybe not

| 21 April 2011 Though the road ahead is long, the ILC collaboration has made considerable strides designing the machine and its two detectors, contributing to the advancement of other fields and bringing together a global community. Now we must keep up the energy for the remaining stretch as we fulfil our mandate to deliver its technical design. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , ,

Planning the Detailed Baseline Design Report

| 24 March 2011 The scientists that make up the physics and detector side of the ILC community come together to create the Detailed Baseline Detector Report, a document that reflects the newest developments and requirements in detector R&D. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , ,
