Global Design Efficiency – the story of a group revolution

| 21 February 2013 It all started in 2004... or so. LC NewsLine recaps the important milestones in the Global Design Effort history, and present and former honourable witnesses remember and send wishes to Barry Barish and Sake Yamada. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

Towards a single directorate for ILC and CLIC physics and detectors studies

| 15 March 2012 The ILC Steering Committee is now considering a new organisation for a linear collider project that includes both the ILC and CLIC programmes, in view of their individual progress and the cooperation between them, and it envisions a merger of physics and detector activities. It is a challenge to create a new mechanism that will satisfy all parties, but we should try hard to find one. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , ,

The International Linear Collider Steering Committee plans for the future

| 8 March 2012 The International Linear Collider Steering Committee, chaired by Jon Bagger, met at Oxford University on 2 February. The main order of business was to plan the future of the ILC effort, following completion of the Technical Design Report. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Moving towards one linear collider project

| 16 February 2012 There are two very different technical approaches to implementing a future TeV-scale linear collider. The International Linear Collider is based on a superconducting radiofrequency main linac, while the Compact Linear Collider uses a two-beam acceleration concept. How will this lead to a single linear collider project? Category: Director's Corner | 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: , , , ,

Detector R&D “coopetition” between ILC and CLIC

| 15 December 2011 Though the differences between ILC and CLIC detectors are marked, ILC detector concepts have been shown to be valuable for the machine being designed by its competitor-cooperator, the CLIC design study. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,

Interim report from the ILC-CLIC general issues group

| 17 February 2011 A freshly released report from the ILC-CLIC working group on general issues summarises general issues and synergies involving a future a linear collider. It also discusses plans for the ILC and CLIC efforts to identify common issues regarding siting, technical issues and project planning. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The ILC-CLIC collaboration and technological challenges

| 24 November 2010 Our current mutual understanding of ILC-CLIC status, is significantly better than that of 2001, owing to the on-going collaboration. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

The first joint ILC and CLIC workshop, IWLC10 in Geneva

| 28 October 2010 This year, the International Workshop on Linear Colliders (IWLC2010), organised by the European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA), was noteworthy in that it was the first joint workshop for both ILC and CLIC... Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

IWLC2010: International Workshop on Linear Colliders 2010

| 16 September 2010 This week I want to preview the coming ECFA-CLIC-ILC joint meeting that will be held from 18 October through 22 October 2010 at CERN and the International Conference Centre Geneva, Switzerland. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,
