Min Zhang | 24 February 2011On 18 February 2011, a delegation of Global Design Effort representatives visited the Orient Tantalum Industry Co. Ltd (OTIC), Ningxia, a leading niobium company in China. The group consisted of ILC project managers Akira Yamamoto and Marc Ross, together with Robert Rimmer of Thomas Jefferson Laboratory in the US, accompanied by Asian Linear Collider Steering Committee Chairman Jie Gao and ILC group member Jiyuan Zhai of the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) in Beijing.

Min Zhang | 4 November 2010Just a week after the International Workshop on Linear Colliders (IWLC2010) held in Geneva, China's Linear Collider Workshop (CLCW2010) organised by the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) was held in Beijing Laffitte Hotel from 30 to 31 October. For the first time, China's linear collider community gathered together to exchange ideas and have a comprehensive discussion about China's participation in the International Linear Collider (ILC) and the Compact Linear Collider study (CLIC).

9 September 2010A 1.3-gigahertz TESLA-type nine-cell niobium superconducting cavity, named PKU3, as the third nine-cell cavity fabricated by the superconducting radiofrequency (RF) group at Peking University, Beijing, China, achieved an accelerating gradient of 28.6 megavolts per metre (MV/m) at an unloaded quality factor of 4×109 in its second vertical test at Jefferson Lab (JLab), USA on 9 August 2010. This cavity is the first nine-cell cavity with end group components in China reaching a gradient usable for the ILC.

Min Zhang | 2 September 2010The European X-ray Free Electron Laser (European XFEL) and the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) are two important international cooperative science facilities mainly led by Germany. China has participated in the R&D of some detectors, low-temperature systems, high-performance undulators, superconducting material and special material for these projects. On 29 August 2008, the project "Basic Research on the FEL and FAIR" supported by China's national programme for key basic research and development (officially called 973 programme) started. The project is coordinated by the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Science (IHEP), and about ten different research institutes, universities and corporations in China participate in this project, including the Institute of Modern Physics, Peking University, Tsinghua University, Orient Tantalum Industry Corp. (OTIC), etc.

Min Zhang | 22 July 2010A 1.3-Gigahertz low-loss type large-grain nine-cell superconducting cavity called IHEP-01 produced at the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) in Beijing, China, achieved an accelerating gradient of 20 Megavolts per metre in its first vertical test at KEK on 1 July. This may not be the design gradient yet, but it marks an important progress on the research and development of superconducting radio frequency (SRF) technology in China.

Min Zhang | 3 June 2010In June, a lot of Chinese students graduate from different schools. Sha Bai, a PhD student from the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), is one of them. “I enjoy my research work very much. I like ATF2, ILC and CLIC a lot,” said Bai, who just received her doctoral degree in June 2010 working on ATF2 (Accelerator Test Facility 2) at KEK in Japan, with the goal to reach 37-nanometre vertical beam size at the interaction point, both in beam optics and experimental work.
