Register now for ALCW2015: Early registration extended
There are only a few days left to register at more favorable price for The Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 (ALCW2015). The Early registration has been extended – but only until Sunday, March 29. Register today!
Being different from the past regional workshops in Asia this workshop is co-organised by KEK, ACFA, and LCC and a new session organisation is attempted; detector sessions consists of several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups.
The workshop, being organised at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan, will have a special focus on the ILC progress in Japan. Your attendance for his workshop will greatly influence the future of the ILC. Join us from 20 to 24 April 2015, at KEK!
A must-attend is the Tokyo Event on Wednesday – a sSymposium and a special Food Festa to be held on 22 April.
Please see ALCW2015 website for details. Seeing you in Tsukuba and Tokyo !

Barbara Warmbein | 3 July 2014Cornell is working on a technology that could make superconducting cavities even more efficient: niobium alloyed with tin. Currently in single-cell research stage, tests show promising results, especially for the quality factor Q. Cornell university has always been a big player in the development of superconducting radio frequency technology SCRF, the technology chosen for the ILC. Even though research into Nb3Sn-cavities is not advanced enough to replace conventional cavities just yet, it might play a big role in future upgrades of the ILC – and in many other accelerators for all kinds of purposes the nearer future.

Leah Hesla | 27 January 2011The idea behind recycling is straightforward: reuse what you have to make more of the same. Applying this concept, however, is seldom simple. In the case of Cornell University's Energy Recovery Linac (ERL), recycling energy to generate particle beams requires technological advancements that are born from decades of research. If scientists there fulfil their mission, they'll be able to use particle beams to accelerate particle beams, producing some of the brightest bunches to be made by an accelerator.
