ATF autumn run started: aiming for the beam size required for the ILC

| 25 October 2012 KEK'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.

1-TeV beam shapes up

| 9 February 2012 Designing a 1-TeV upgrade of the ILC requires a suitable particle beam to go along with it. Scientists recently decided on the shape of the 1-TeV beam, and it has a shifted waist. Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

Progress in the nanometre world

| 24 February 2011 Two periods dedicated to beam tuning and beam size studies at KEK's Accelerator Test Facility ATF2, built to test the ILC's final focus system, have brought researchers a step closer to achieving the ILC's demanding beam parameters. Executive Committee member Toshiaki Tauchi reports on the studies. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,
