Special Linear Collider Event during the IEEE Symposium

| 8 November 2012 The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) held a “Special Linear Collider Event” as part of their 2012 Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference at Anaheim, California. The special event, held on 29 and 30 October, came on the heels of the discovery of a Higgs-like particle at the LHC at CERN this summer and included an array of leaders in the field. There were presentations on the International Linear Collider (ILC) and Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) accelerators as well as detector concepts, the potential impact of the LC technologies for industrial applications and a forum discussion about future LC perspectives.

Linear collider event during IEEE symposium in Anaheim

13 September 2012 There will be a special linear collider event during this year's IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium in Anaheim, US. Industry, accelerator experts and linear collider researchers from around the world gather to discuss technologies and possibilities. Category: Around the World | Tagged: ,

The science of showers

| 12 January 2012 Good timing is a virtue. Just as comedians have to wait for just the right moment to deliver their punch line, linear collider physicists need to know when to make cuts. These cuts separate phenomena called particle showers from each other, making it possible for the physicists to tell which reaction originated from which collision. Two German PhD students have built a test device that is supposed to get behind the precise timing of showers. Category: Profile | Tagged: , , , ,

From DESY inForm: Together We’re Strong

4 September 2008 Faster, higher, farther! The motto of this year's Olympic Games is also valid for the development of research opportunities. But unlike the Olympic athletes who struggle to beat world records by fractions of hundredths, the development of accelerator experiments is progressing in such extreme steps that researchers have to clear completely new hurdles – their measuring instruments are too inaccurate.
