The ILC design evolves

| 17 April 2014 Having just returned from a three-day meeting of civil engineers, accelerator designers, integration experts and linear collider management at the University of Tokyo, Mike Harrison, ILC Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration, reports on the progress. It turned out that even if the ILC is built in stages, which is a popular model with many, all the major civil engineering facilities would have to be completed in phase one of the project.

| 22 August 2013 How many people do you know with ILC tattoos? We know one, and he interned with Jefferson Lab’s Electron Gun Group this summer. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

Flexibility in the ILC design

| 24 June 2010 In a new large accelerator complex which will take years to get approved and constructed, one must maintain some degree of flexibility in its design as many things can change before a construction start. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

The GDE to meet in Russia

| 17 April 2008 The next general meeting for the GDE will be at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, Russia. JINR is a large international laboratory with a long history in accelerator-related science. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

From symmetry Magazine: Evolution of a Collider

| 8 March 2007 As physicists and engineers devise ways to make the International Linear Collider perform better at a lower cost, the design evolves, sometimes with tweaks but at other times with major reconfigurations. Category: Feature | Tagged:

The Evolving ILC Design: Push-Pull Detector Arrangement

| 1 February 2007 The full realization of the scientific potential of the ILC argues for the construction and operation of two complementary detectors by two international collaborations. (This statement comes from a chapter of the soon to be released ILC Detector Concept Report (DCR)) Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The Evolving ILC Design: Centralising the Injectors

| 21 December 2006 I report today on another design change that has resulted from our ongoing cost to performance optimisation studies, which we are carrying out before finalising the ILC reference design. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The Evolving ILC Design: Lowering Detectors from the Surface

| 16 November 2006 On 2 November, right before the very successful GDE meeting that has just concluded in Valencia, Spain, we officially made another important change to the ILC baseline design. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Road to the ILC Reference Design

| 19 October 2006 The next big goal for the Global Design Effort is to produce an ILC Reference Design Report, RDR, that will include Preliminary Costing. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
