LC NewsLine is taking a winter break. Happy holidays to our readers! We will be migrating the website and will be back in a couple of weeks.
Joint Universities Accelerator School: register now
Registration for the 2017 session of the Joint Universities Accelerator School (JUAS) is open to all staff, fellows and post-graduate students wishing to further their knowledge in the field. For more information please visit the website.
European School of Instrumentation in Particle & Astroparticle Physics
The next edition of the European School of Instrumentation in Particle & Astroparticle Physics (ESIPAP) will be held from 23 January to 17 March 2017. Registrations for the 2017 session of ESIPAP are open here.
Toshiaki Tauchi | 25 October 2012KEK's Accelerator Test facility (ATF) is up again after its summer shutdown. After several improvements to beams size monitors, multi-ole magnets and the organisation structure, the international team is looking forward to squeezing the beam size further and further towards the 37 nanometres required for the ILC.

Image: H. Hayano | 29 March 2012At KEK's superconducting RF test facility, better known as STF, scientists are conducting beam tests of their photocathode RF gun towards beam operation of the accelerator for the Quantum Beam Project. On 22 March, scientists succeeded in the extraction of a 1-millisecond beam for a 162.5-megahertz bunch train. Pictured here is a signal from the beam position monitor (blue) and a laser gate signal (violet). Read more about the Quantum Beam Project in a future issue of ILC NewsLine.
