Rika Takahashi | 24 July 2014Last month, LC NewsLine reported the achievement of the world’s smallest beam size of 55 nanometres at the ATF2 facility at KEK. At two international conferences held in June and July, the next record of 44 nanometres was reported by Kiyoshi Kubo and Shigeru Kuroda.

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.

Leah Hesla | 9 February 2012Designing 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.
