Elizabeth Clements | 15 December 2005Some of the major recommendations discussed at Frascati include the energy upgrade, number of tunnels, curvature of the tunnel and the number of interaction regions. Kaoru Yokoya, a member of the GDE Executive Committee, outlined the recommendations made in the BCD. "The BCD concluded that a 500 GeV tunnel would be built because of its lower first stage cost.", he said. As the current recommendation stands, a 20 km tunnel would be built during the first stage of the project. An upgrade would occur in between the first and second stage of the project, bringing the machine up to an energy of 1 TeV and increasing the length of the tunnel to approximately 40 km.
