Barry Barish | 16 February 2012There 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?

Barbara Warmbein | 12 January 2012Good 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.
