From DESY inForm: Accelerator – stonewashed

| 20 March 2014 Usually it’s basic research – especially for particle accelerators – that pioneers new technology. But in this case the researchers obviously had a little inspirational snoop at Levi’s or any other jeans manufacturer’s. Recently, DESY’s superconducting TESLA cavities have started to be surface-treated with a stonewashing equipment – accelerators stonewashed, so to say. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

From DESY inForm: Under one roof

| 19 December 2013 One-stop (work)shopping for high-gradient cavities: in a new lab at DESY in Hamburg all inspection and treatment processes for cavities come together under one roof to make treatment faster and more reliable and prepare for serial production.

Running like an electron

| 7 November 2013 Hundreds of children (as well as some playful adults) turned into human electrons at the ILC exhibit for the German accelerator lab DESY’s Open Day on 2 November in a mini ILC. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Doors open wide

| 26 September 2013 Dialogue with the general public is important for good relations with the neighbours of research labs. This weekend, CERN holds its Open Days to share the excitement of science and life at a lab with an estimated 50,000 visitors per day. Let’s keep this tradition up.

SLAC inaugurates a new era for the future ILC (twice)

| 27 June 2013 The University of Tokyo, CERN and Fermilab weren’t the only locations celebrating the handover of the International Linear Collider’s (ILC) Technical Design Report on 12 June. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

Tunnel vision

| 13 June 2013 During the ECFA LC2013 workshop that took place a the end of May at DESY in Hamburg, the LC management, civil engineering and machine-detector interface experts visited the tunnel of the future European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser XFEL - a week before construction was officially finished. DESY and the European XFEL celebrated the completion of the construction work with a ceremony, atmospheric lights and music in the new tunnel. Watch the slideshow.

Hiking like an electron

| 30 May 2013 Hiking for charity can be a bit like particle acceleration, say three DESY scientist who walked an Oxfam Trailwalk in Japan in May. Beta functions, final focus, samurais and a shrouded Mount Fuji were all part of their two-day adventure. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

The ECFA LC2013 workshop

| 30 May 2013 The European Linear Collider workshop, taking place in Hamburg from 27 to 31 May, coincides with very many important strategic processes at Japan, Europe and US, all of them nourished by the optimistic results from the LHC. Juan Fuster, chair of the workshop programme committee, explains the scientific and political context of the meeting. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Good signal, little noise

| 18 April 2013 A concept to save space and power for future particle detectors called power pulsing has recently been tested and proven to work on one of the possible calorimeter options for the future ILC detectors. The silicon-tungsten electromagnetic calorimeter prototype took data in test beam and magnet at the German lab DESY. The project is currently run by groups from France and Japan.

Bye bye DORIS

Image: DESY | 20 December 2012 The German lab DESY is saying good-bye to one of its accelerator workhorses, the DORIS ring. On 2 January 2013 the final beam will go round its tunnel. It has already stopped being a light source: the last positron beam reached the HASYLAB experimental huts on 22 October. Between then and now, DORIS reverted to its original raison d’etre: an accelerator for particle physics. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: ,
