Rethinking the linear collider in view of the bump

| 9 June 2016 The bump at 750 GeV in the LHC data holds the particle physics community in its grip. Reporting from last week’s ECFA Linear Collider Workshop in Spain, LCC director Lyn Evans says that participants discussed what this could mean for the ILC and its configuration. He also summarises the status discussions and keeps fingers crossed for new developments in superconducting RF technology. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

A low-energy gamma-gamma collider as a first step toward the ILC

| 11 December 2008 The spirit of new ideas that prevailed at the ICFA meeting continued into the ILCSC meeting where Hirotaka Sugawara, former director general of KEK, Japan, presented a different approach towards the ILC. He suggested building a lower-energy gamma-gamma machine as a first step towards the ILC. The ILCSC is now evaluating the pros and cons of this idea. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:
