| 23 February 2012 This simple question does not have a simple answer. The ILC linear accelerator length issue was recently discussed during a Baseline Technical Review at KEK, as there are many technical choices that can affect it. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Decisions, decisions, decisions

| 1 December 2011 In just over one year we plan to produce the final Global Design Effort deliverable, a Technical Design Report for the ILC. We have made a set of important improvements in the design over the past year that will result in an ILC design that is more optimised for cost, performance and risk, and have recently hammered out a large number of smaller technical decisions at the Baseline Technical Review at DESY.
