Make no assumptions

| 5 July 2012 The LHC experiments are definitely homing in on a Higgs boson in a mass region somewhere around 126 GeV. Further studies and more data from the LHC will tell us more about what it is that they have found, but only a linear collider will be able to tell without prejudice whether it’s a Standard Model Higgs (or not) and determine its mass with a precision down to about 60 MeV. Here’s how. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

ILC physics and detector programme sees progress in Kyushu

| 31 May 2012 Close to 80 scientists gathered at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan for the ILD workshop held from 23 to 25 May. The workshop also drew interest from Japanese media, who attended press briefing and the tour around "the south site" for the ILC. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

If the particles won’t come to the detector…

| 10 May 2012 Five shafts, pacmen shields and moving platforms: the design for the hall in which the ILC detectors will sit, be pushed and pulled, record data, get upgrades and maintenance is now final, at least for an ILC that is not built underneath mountains.

Design report in the making: drafting the DBD

| 19 January 2012 The year 2012 will be very busy and exciting. The main task for the ILC physics and detector community is to complete Detailed Baseline Design report summarising our effort since 2007. To achieve this goal, coordination between the detector groups and with the Global Design Effort is essential, and we are fulfilling this mission.

The impact of ILC detector R&D

| 18 August 2011 Although the actual construction date of the ILC accelerator and its detectors is very uncertain, the impact of the R&D for ILC detectors is very real. Sometimes we tend to overlook the deep impact the work initiated by and carried out within the ILC detector community has already had on the whole particle physics community and beyond.

ILD collaborators make progress on detector design options

and | 30 June 2011 With the publication of the Detailed Baseline Design Report in their sights, members of the ILD collaboration work diligently to form realisable models of their detector, ones that take into account both their physics simulations and the nuts and bolts of engineering designs.

Concrete plans for a platform

| 23 June 2011 Linear collider collaborators are on board with the use of two platforms to move the ILC’s two colossal detectors in and out of the particle beamline. Now they work to design them so the detectors' rides are as smooth as possible. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

Determining the cost of the ILC detectors

| 19 May 2011 Costing the two ILC detectors more precisely is one of the important activities for the ongoing ILC detector design work, and balancing detector cost and performance depends on the strategy of the detector groups. To learn whether there are differences among them, the groups undertake detailed coordination of their costing methodologies. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , ,

TPC in the right light

17 February 2011 The test beam season is about to start and the prototype of the ILD time projection chamber is being prepared for a round of new tests in the DESY testbeam facility - captured here by a professional photographer. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , ,

Detector groups work out their work plans

| 18 February 2010 In my report of last December, I wrote about detector activities in the new phase after validation. One of them was the effort of the two detector groups, ILD and SiD, to make the work plans towards their detailed baseline design aimed to be ready in 2012. -- Sakue Yamada Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , ,
