KEK and Fermilab: Strengthening collaborations

| 26 April 2007 Two of our principle collaborating institutions in the ILC are KEK Laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan and Fermilab in Batavia, Illinois. This week the KEK Director General, Atsuto Suzuki, came to Fermilab to discuss increased collaboration. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

STF – Getting ready for the experience

| 1 March 2007 An important prerequisite for building the ILC is to establish the design and manufacturing of major and vital components, such as cryomodules for the main linacs through realistic operating conditions. The Tesla Test Facility (FLASH) at DESY and Fermilab’s ILC Test Area have been pursued to play critical roles in the European and American regions to this end. KEK also aims to serve as an Asian regional center for the main linac technology, and their STF (Superconducting RF Test Facility) and R&D programs are a manifestation of its endeavour. Many members of STF from KEK are active members in the GDE and in close collaborative relationships with colleagues from DESY, INFN, Orsay, FNAL, JLab, Cornell and SLAC. Major laboratories from China, Korea, and India, have expressed their interests or have already begun interactions with the programme at STF in various forms also.

EuroTeV Looks Ahead to the ILC Engineering Design Phase

| 18 January 2007 Almost three years after EuroTeV (The European Design Study Towards a Global TeV Linear Collider) convened for the very first time at Daresbury Laboratory in February 2004, the collaboration met once again this past week amidst the rolling green hills and gusting gales to acknowledge programme accomplishments and discuss plans for the future.

Argonne-Fermilab BCP System Coming Together

| 4 January 2007 To make the superconducting cavities for the ILC sparkle, they must undergo a series of surface treatments to make them as clean and pure as possible – a necessity for achieving high accelerating gradients. Electropolishing and Buffered Chemical Polishing, the two types of chemical treatments required for the cavities, are not simple tasks. They involve tricky chemicals and a detailed recipe for producing the best cavities possible. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

To-Gakkai meets the ILC

| 14 September 2006 Science is a great achievement of human endeavour and culture. Yet sometimes people get confused about the distinction between science and foolish ideas. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Able was I ere I saw Elba

| 15 June 2006 This famous palindrome was purportedly spoken by Napoleon when referring to his first sighting of Elba, the island where the British exiled him in 1814. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Future Particle Physics in Asia

| 8 June 2006 High energy physics is a field of international collaborative efforts, both historically and today. Many non-Asian scientists from around the world are currently participating in the KEKB and neutrino experiments at KEK. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Kaoru Yokoya leads LC Office at KEK

and | 13 April 2006 As Fumihiko Takasaki steps down as the Asian Regional Director of the International Linear Collider to become the director of the Institute of Particle and Nuclear Studies at KEK, he also steps down as the head of the Linear Collider Promotion Office, or LC Office, at KEK. His successor at the LC Office is Kaoru Yokoya, an accelerator physicist who has been working for the linear collider for more than twenty years. Category: Around the World | Tagged:

ATF – A Unique Facility for Nano-beam

6 October 2005 Traditional circular accelerators around , like LEP and KEKB, accelerate electrons and positrons in rings into opposite directions respectively. A bunch of electrons and another bunch of positrons encounter each other many times in a ring, and consequently have many chances to collide. In the ILC on the other hand, electrons and positrons are accelerated oppositely, meeting only once at the collision point. No consolation match is allowed. Category: Feature | Tagged: ,
