National Lab Day

| 12 May 2016 Fermilab, SLAC, JLab, Brookhaven, Argonne... these are all major players in particle physics and accelerator R&D. They are also the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) "national labs". All national research labs came to Washington, D.C. on 20 April to show their work to members of Congress and other visitors. Pictured is Dick Durbin, Illinois senator, giving his address. DOE has 17 national laboratories that address a variety of scientific and technological challenges to energy, environmental and national security. The laboratories employ more than 30,000 scientists, engineers and support staff in 19 states, and operate major scientific facilities for the benefit of the nation’s research and development community.

Study on technical feasibility

| 17 September 2015 The Japanese consultant Nomura Research Institute is about to embark on a world tour to visit labs around the world and industrial production sites for accelerator components. They are working on a study about the technical feasibility of the ILC and ways to reduce cost. They may be coming to a lab near you!

Jefferson Lab and IHEP renew accelerator cavity collaboration

| 17 November 2011 Jefferson Lab in the US and the Institute for High Energy Physics in China sign a formal agreement that will further accelerator cavity research. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Understanding electron beam halos

| 8 September 2011 The halo of an electron beam does not make it angelic. It only adds to the beam's messy profile, making more work for physicists like Jefferson Lab’s Pavel Evtushenko, who was recently awarded funding for five years to look into developing high-range dynamics beam diagnostics that could help clean up electron beams.

Pushing the limits with high-voltage electron guns

| 21 July 2011 Scientists at Jefferson Lab advance high-voltage electron gun research to create tight, spin-polarised electron beams. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

The 12-GeV upgrade of Jefferson Lab’s CEBAF accelerator

| 9 June 2011 Last month Jefferson Lab, instrumental in developing SCRF technology for the ILC, took a critical step in a five-year upgrade of its CEBAF accelerator. Once complete, the machine will be able to accelerate electron beams to energies of up to 12 GeV, allowing researchers to chart, with ever greater depth and resolution, the map of the nucleon.

Impersonating bulk niobium

| 5 May 2011 Anything bulk niobium can do, thin films can do better. At least, that’s the hope of Jefferson Laboratory scientists, who are currently exploring a method that would allow them to create customisable thin niobium films. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Jefferson Lab’s rules for achieving spotless cavities

| 18 November 2010 A research team at Jefferson Lab has developed its own detailed set of rules for optimal cleaning. Team members have been working on a regimen for removing imperfections and impurities from superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) niobium cavities. Their procedures, they believe, have helped create cavities that could exceed ILC 2010 performance benchmarks. Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

From Jefferson Lab News: ILC treatment of JLab cavity garners exciting result

5 February 2009 For the last few years, Jefferson Lab staff members have used the lab's unique facilities to test various accelerator components for a proposed next-generation collider, the International Linear Collider. Reminiscent of a stack of doughnuts, accelerator components called cavities energize particles for use in experiments that explore the smallest bits of matter.
