Building a home for the ILC detectors

| 19 April 2012 The ILC detectors have found a home - at least on paper and if they are not to be built in a mountainous region. The process of designing the caverns for the ILC's future detectors centres on optimising space usage and making the system as efficient as possible.

DOE and NSF Review US Detector R&D Programme

| 28 June 2007 The cacophonous tune of cicadas serenaded the physicists at last week’s Department of Energy and National Science Foundation review of the US Detector R&D Programme for the International Linear Collider. Harry Weerts, the High Energy Physics Director at Argonne National Laboratory, where the review took place, vividly remembered the last time the cicadas visited --17 years ago when another detector milestone was in the making. “I remember it well because we were commissioning the DZero detector at Fermilab,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the next time the cicadas come around and seeing what the world looks like then.” Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , ,

Developing a roadmap for ILC detectors

| 28 June 2007 During the ILC reference design phase, leading up to the Reference Design Report (RDR), the International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC) appointed a Machine Advisory Committee (MAC) to provide technical reviews of our work. 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: ,
