Some highlights from the KILC12 workshop

| 7 June 2012 The international KILC12 workshop was held in April in Korea to discuss topics varying from ILC physics to the nuts and bolts of the accelerator and detector designs for the International Linear Collider. This meeting came at a crucial time when the design decisions for the Technical Design Report was being finalised and the writing of the report being begun in earnest.

France, Japan and Korea cooperation in particle physics

| 31 May 2012 For the first time, two internationally associated laboratories, the France-Korea Laboratory for Particle Physics and e-science and the France-Japan Particle Physics Laboratory (renamed Toshiko Yuasa Laboratory), jointly held their annual meeting, providing new opportunities for trilateral collaborations. More than 70 physicists gathered from 28-30 May at the Laboratoire de Physique Corpusculaire, in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Talks included overviews from the directors of KEK, KISTI, CEA/Irfu and CNRS/IN2P3 and a review of the latest results of the collaborative work on particle detector and accelerator R&D, astroparticle and neutrinos and grid computing.

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: , ,

Test facility at KEK becomes an accelerator

| 26 April 2012 KEK's superconducting radiofrequency test facility, called STF, has graduated. No longer a test facility, it is now a fully fledged accelerator. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,

ILC beyond the technical design

| 8 March 2012 Realising a big international project such as International Linear Collider involves many issues beyond finalising the technical design. The Advanced Accelerator Association promoting science and technology, Japan's industry-academia collaboration towards the realisation of the ILC, recently published a report to address such issues.

Japanese civil engineers dig deep in Europe

, and | 1 March 2012 Ten members from the Japanese Society for Civil Engineering’s committee for civil works for future ILC facilities came to Europe in February to look at current civil engineering projects like CERN’s LINAC4 and the European XFEL in Hamburg and to discuss administrative challenges. By the end of March next year, the committee will publish draft guidelines on civil solutions for a potential ILC in Japan. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

Japanese civil engineers visit DESY and CERN

A visit to the two candidate Japanese ILC sites

| 2 February 2012 On 17 and 18 January, several senior members of the ILC design team had the opportunity to visit the Japanese candidate sites. As reported in ILC NewsLine last month, the Japanese have identified two candidate sites for the ILC, one in southern and one in northern Japan. Today, I give my impressions following our visit to both sites. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

We’re ready for our close-up

26 January 2012 An NHK television news crew followed around ILC scientists for two days last week as they visited proposed sites for building the ILC in Japan. NHK's five-minute segment appeared on the 7 a.m. news, reaching an estimated 30 million homes. Scientists were excited to be part of the Japanese news media. Here, Global Design Effort Director Barry Barish addresses the camera as he explains the purpose of the ILC. Category: Image of the week | Tagged:

The capability for producing niobium sheets

| 26 January 2012 Japanese company Tokyo Denkai is boosting high-purity niobium production and processing with some new equipment and a better-outfitted shop. Should the ILC be built, the company will be able to handle the large order of niobium needed for accelerator cavities. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,
