World beam test tour at Fermilab

| 2 October 2008 The International Linear Collider requires a detector with excellent performance to fully exploit its physics potential. In order to meet this challenge, significant improvements in the calorimetric performance are needed compared to previous generations of detectors, and new technologies and techniques are being developed. To test those technologies and techniques with particle beams, scientists are travelling around the world, to where beamlines with particle beams for tests are available.

First cryomodule moves into NML

| 14 August 2008 Good news from an experimental hall at the edge of the prairie: Fermilab's ILC test area in the 'New Muon Lab' (NML) has just taken a major step towards completion with the installation of the first cryomodule on 6 August. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

From Fermilab Today: Citizens’ task force delivers recommendations

19 June 2008 When Fermilab reached out to neighbors five years ago to engage community members in laboratory decision making, some people in science and some neighbors doubted it would work. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

From Fermilab Today: Students report on the importance, design of proposed linear collider

22 May 2008 To teach 35 eighth-graders about particle physics, Batavia Rotolo Middle School teachers Macy Felter and Elizabeth Selander had them study the ILC, the proposed next-generation particle accelerator. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Globalising R&D

| 15 May 2008 The coordination of superconducting radiofrequency R&D is central to the Global Design Effort's mission of bringing the design for the ILC to the point we can make a robust proposal to our governments. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

From Fermilab Today: Fermilab welcomes CALICE to Test Beam facility

8 May 2008 One of Fermilab's most distinct buildings now has a new resident. Last month, members of the CALICE collaboration moved their calorimeters into the newly renovated Meson Test Beam Facility. They will test the calorimeters with low- and high-energy particle beams during the next two years. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

From Fermilab Today: Fermilab reaches milestone with successful cavity test

24 April 2008 A successful test of a dressed 3.9 GHz superconducting radiofrequency cavity last week put Fermilab among an elite group that can produce cutting-edge, high-powered accelerator components. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

From Fermilab Today: SCRF meeting establishes compatibility framework

1 May 2008 Scientists from around the world work to develop components for future linear accelerators that use superconducting radiofrequency cavities. Research efforts should allow for a more efficient and cost-effective approach to furthering this technology. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

From Fermilab Today: India’s RRCAT director tours U.S. laboratories

| 7 February 2008 Vinod Sahni, the director of India's Raja Ramanna Center for Advanced Technology, spent the greater part of December visiting U.S. laboratories. Tour stops included Brookhaven, SLAC and Fermilab, where he had the opportunity to discuss such activities as superconducting radiofrequency technology and Project X.
