Linear Collider Accelerator School

| 12 July 2012 A very talented group of accelerator physicists have come together from around the world to develop the technologies and design for a next-generation lepton collider that will complement CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Who better to learn accelerator physics from? The International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders to be held in Indore, India, next autumn offers this opportunity and applications are being accepted now for this year’s school.

DESY meets India

| 24 May 2012 What do huge sailing ships, science and India have in common? They were all present at this year's celebrations for the birthday of Hamburg's harbour. This year's special guest country was India, and as DESY has strong links with India especially in the field of photon science, DESY put up a tent in the harbour and presented itself, its science and its Indian scientists to the more than one million visitors.

Collaboration between India and Japan for SCRF technology

| 10 April 2008 India's Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology (RRCAT) is a leading institute for research and development in lasers, accelerators and their applications. In the Indian government's current five-year plan (April 2007-April 2012), building infrastructure and developing the technology of niobium superconducting radiofrequency (SCRF) cavities are the two major objectives for high-energy physics and accelerator-related projects. Following this plan, RRCAT wants to build its own electropolishing (EP) facility in India, and three scientists visited Japan to participate in the commissioning of the new EP system at KEK.

GDE Boards Deliver Updates in Bangalore

| 16 March 2006 Design and Cost Board Peter Garbincius, chair of the GDE Design and Cost Board, presented their ongoing work. The Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) provides templates to each GDE working group and helps them define their cost estimates. "The main issues of this group is to make sure that the final system will be consistent and acceptable for everyone. ", said Garbincius. "In principle, the WBS we made should be applicable to every sub-system." The board will make sure each group identifies the major costs. Once the cost drivers are identified, the board will assess if they can be reduced. "Another issue is to encourage the group to provide the Change Control Board with a certain level of details on major items, to reduce uncertainty in the global machine cost", said Garbincius. To help them, the Design and Cost Board will provide a "recipe" for cost estimation. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,
