Press release: Next-generation particle accelerator is ready for construction

13 June 2013 Tokyo, Geneva, Chicago – 12 June 2013. A five-volume report containing the blueprint for a future particle physics project, the International Linear Collider (ILC), was published today. In three consecutive ceremonies in Asia, Europe and the Americas, the authors of the Technical Design Report for the International Linear Collider, a next-generation particle collider to complement and advance beyond the physics of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, officially handed the report over to the international oversight board for projects in particle physics, the International Committee for Future Accelerators ICFA. The Technical Design Report presents the latest, most technologically advanced and most thoroughly scrutinised design for the ILC. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Korea-US Collaboration Center for Accelerator Science opens at Fermilab

From Fermilab Today: Fermilab’s new cavity temperature mapping system commissioned

| 26 July 2012 Fermilab scientists have a new diagnostic tool that could lead to far more efficient accelerator cavities. The temperature mapping system, fitted with 576 sensors, reads the temperature of every square centimetre of cavity surface and might thus help scientists get to the bottom of the problem of why superconducting cavities dissipate much more energy than theory predicts.

Celebrating the Tevatron

| 14 June 2012 The Tevatron may have stopped running, but it still manages to attract a massive crowd. On Monday, Fermilab celebrated the Tevatron's contributions to science, technology and society in the Tevatron Impact Symposium. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: ,

The potential of superconducting niobium cavities

| 17 May 2012 There are more than 30,000 particle accelerators in operation around the world. At Fermilab, US, scientists are collaborating with other laboratories and industry to optimise the manufacturing processes for a new type of powerful accelerator that uses superconducting niobium cavities.

Fermilab’s Cryomodule 2 installation

| 3 May 2012 Last week Fermilab's Cryomodule 2 was transported to the laboratory's NML building. Watch trucks, cranes and people move and install the ILC-type cryomodule in a time-lapse video. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , , ,

New bison at Fermilab

| 19 April 2012 Two new male bison, or bulls, were delivered to Fermilab earlier this month. New bulls are rotated into the Fermilab herd every few years. Read more about it in Fermilab Today. Category: Image of the week | Tagged:

Doing the cryomodule shuffle

| 19 April 2012 Out with the old, in with the new! Having completed a successful run of tests on Cryomodule 1, Fermilab researchers remove it from its current home and install Cryomodule 2. The new device’s components have shown promise, and with the experience from the earlier cryomodule brought to bear on the next, the team hopes to realise the ILC gradient goals at Fermilab before long.

Pushing technology, expanding industry

| 12 January 2012 Canada-based PAVAC Industries recently set up a second shop in Fermilab’s backyard. Their work in superconducting cavities pushes their technological capabilities, enabling them to expand into other accelerator applications such as flue gas treatment for coal plants.
