The year 2014 – The real starting year of the ILC?

| 6 February 2014 With the creation of a new ILC Planning Office this week at KEK, the Japanese high-energy physics community is taking another big step towards making the ILC a reality in Japan. It is the pre-step for forming an international organisation, which KEK Director General Atsuto Suzuki would like to establish. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , ,

Senior vice-minister of science of Japan visits CERN

Image: CERN | 23 January 2014 One hundred metres under Swiss roads and fields, Yoshitaka Sakurada, Senior Vice Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, was pleased to discover the Japanese flag proudly displayed on an inner triplet magnet, one of the Japanese contributions to the Large Hadron Collider LHC at CERN. Guided in the LHC by LCC Director Lyn Evans and Asian Regional Director Akira Yamamoto, Sakurada and his team visited the tunnel and the ATLAS experiment, two examples of how international collaborations can achieve great things for science.

Japanese government makes a move

| 23 January 2014 We were all holding our breaths to see the Japanese government making an official move towards hosting the ILC. A small but significant move happened as a Christmas present with the release of the government budget proposal for the Japanese Fiscal Year 2014 which includes an official budget line for the ILC.

Take two for cryomodule 2

| 11 July 2013 With the repair and reinstallation of the cryomodule known as CM2, Fermilab researchers are back on the road towards achieving the International Linear Collider’s R&D “S1” goal: operating a cryomodule at ILC gradient specifications.

S1-Global – a plug-compatible ILC demonstration experiment

| 18 October 2012 The S1-Global experiment was conceived to demonstrate the radiofrequency (RF) operation of an ILC cryomodule with an average accelerating gradient of 31.5 MV/metre. The project to build a segment of a superconducting linac system and test the string of superconducting RF cavities was carried out at KEK through a global collaboration. This experiment provided a significant and successful demonstration of the operation of eight nine-cell superconducting cavities and associated hardware components with components provided from laboratories around the world.

Mapping the ILC

Image: ILC, Map implementation: Jeffrey Clark (GDE) | 19 January 2012 Map implementation: Jeffrey Clark (GDE) The ‘international’ in ‘International Linear Collider’ isn’t just a part of a name. The ILC is demonstrably global, involving thousands of scientists from the Americas, Asia and Europe in accelerator activity, detector research and physics pursuits. The map is a picture of ILC activity around the world. Visit the map webpage and click around. And if you notice any inaccuracies or see that an institution is missing, please don’t hesitate to notify us. We can make corrections. Enjoy exploring the world of the ILC!

The beauty of international collaboration

| 27 August 2009 I have personally been convinced during my whole professional life of the great advantages and the increasing necessity of International Collaboration. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Large-scale international research facilities

| 8 January 2009 The nature of modern scientific research has been changing due to the increased reliance on large-scale scientific facilities for forefront research. The programmes at our DOE National Laboratories have become focused more and more around large facilities and the programme of Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction (MREFC) has emerged as a very important part of the NSF research portfolio. The NSF programme began with physics and astronomy initiatives, but has expanded into other disciplines. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,
