High-precision vertexing: from concept to reality

| 25 November 2015 They're all individuals: detectors for particle physics all look very different. However, some of the technologies they (plan to) use can be the same, as this example from Belle II hows: it uses a component originally designed for an ILC detector. An example of technology transfer from the future... Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

Here’s one we made earlier

| 17 September 2015 Particle detectors need to be at the forefront of technology in order to capture particle collisions in great detail and quick succession. R&D projects for upgrades of existing detectors or future ones are busy around the world, and sometimes the technologies developed and studied in these projects can help out in others. LC NewsLine has two examples. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Back in the beam

| 17 September 2015 Calorimeter prototypes have been taking showers at CERN – particle showers, that is. Detector developers have just packed up their equipment after finishing a campaign to understand the time structure of hadron showers. And they are happy with what they achieved. Find out how a beer chiller played a role in the test beam as well… Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , , , , ,

Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 coming soon

| 5 February 2015 The Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 (ALCW2015) will take place at KEK from 20 – 24 April. The workshop will be devoted to accelerator, physics and detector aspects of future high energy electron-positron linear colliders. It comes at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan and will have a special focus on the ILC progress in Japan, says Asian Regional Director Akira Yamamoto.

CERN-KEK offices established

26 November 2014 CERN and the Japanese high-energy accelerator research laboratory KEK have a long history of collaboration. An agreement signed at KEK on 21 November puts this on even firmer ground: both labs will establish CERN-KEK offices to increase the collaborative effort on accelerator R&D and construction projects of mutual interest.

How small can you go?

| 19 June 2014 The world’s smallest ever beam size of 55 nanometres was achieved by the ATF2 facility at KEK, reported Nobuhiro Terunuma at the AWLC workshop held at Fermilab. And what is more, the results are reproducible, which means that for the ILC, a recovery after a short break would be no issue. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , ,

Guideline for ILC civil engineering completed

| 3 April 2014 The Japan Society of Civil Engineers has just completed a guideline report for the civil engineering of the International Linear Collider, based on a five-year investigation. This report will enable the best and most cost-effective construction of the ILC. Adapted to the Japanese candidate site, this document will be effective for the construction of ILC at any overseas sites, and also useful to other future large-scale underground constructions.

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: , , , , ,

Now open: the Planning Office for the International Linear Collider to realise the ILC

| 6 February 2014 I am pleased to be in charge to provide the Director’s Corner in timely manner and coinciding with a public announcement from KEK. KEK has set up a Planning Office for the International Linear Collider, headed by Atsuto Suzuki, Director General of KEK. It may serves a precursor for an international planning organisation for the ILC, in the preparation phase starting after the Technical Design Phase completed.

Doors open wide

| 26 September 2013 Dialogue with the general public is important for good relations with the neighbours of research labs. This weekend, CERN holds its Open Days to share the excitement of science and life at a lab with an estimated 50,000 visitors per day. Let’s keep this tradition up.
