Register now for ALCW2015: Early registration extended
There are only a few days left to register at more favorable price for The Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 (ALCW2015). The Early registration has been extended – but only until Sunday, March 29. Register today!
Being different from the past regional workshops in Asia this workshop is co-organised by KEK, ACFA, and LCC and a new session organisation is attempted; detector sessions consists of several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups.
The workshop, being organised at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan, will have a special focus on the ILC progress in Japan. Your attendance for his workshop will greatly influence the future of the ILC. Join us from 20 to 24 April 2015, at KEK!
A must-attend is the Tokyo Event on Wednesday – a sSymposium and a special Food Festa to be held on 22 April.
Please see ALCW2015 website for details. Seeing you in Tsukuba and Tokyo !

18 October 2012SLAC's YouTube channel has more on klystrons, and of course the legendary klystron gallery. In a video about SLAC's Vacuum Microwave Device Department (VMDD), introduces itself as those people who build the devices that make SLAC's particle accelerators go: klystrons. These devices generate intense waves of microwave energy that rocket subatomic particles up to nearly the speed of light. Department head Andy Haase takes us behind the scenes where klystrons are born. These devices are developed, designed and fabricated by teams of physicists, engineers and technicians in coordination across several departments within SLAC's Accelerator Directorate.

Daisy Yuhas | 18 October 2012Superconducting cavities accelerate particles using radiofrequency (RF) power. But where does the power to accelerate a beam by millions of electronvolts come from? The ILC’s power source can provide only about 100 watts, but to push that power up to the required level you need a device called a klystron. The klystron is a power amplifier. It can expand a few tens of watts into millions, or megawatts. Each ILC klystron will supply amplified power to 39 superconducting cavities for the baseline design.

Leah Hesla | 3 February 2011Though it doesn’t sound like a way to tidy up, the alliteratively named klystron cluster could be the mechanism that helps streamline the large-scale design of the ILC. Scientists at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in the US are currently developing the klystron cluster scheme, a new kind power-delivery system for radio frequency cavities that distributes power from a common conduit.

1 October 2009At SLAC, accelerator physicists Chris Adolphsen and Chris Nantista are working on one point that has proven to be particularly prickly: figuring out how to provide the accelerator with the power needed to drive the machine's high-energy particle collisions.

Barbara Warmbein | 17 January 2008The world’s first horizontal multi-beam klystron has started its site acceptance test at DESY. Built by the Japanese company Toshiba, it is the first of three prototypes from different companies to arrive for the test that will determine whether the new klystron design works. The 10-megawatt horizontal klystron was developed for the European X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) and is also part of the reference design for the ILC.

1 February 2007The current design for the International Linear Collider (ILC) requires 576, 10-megawatt klystron tubes to supply microwave power along its 40 km linear accelerator. Each ILC klystron tube needs 120,000 volt, 140-ampere pulses, fired at a rate of five pulses per second. Each pulse delivers a total energy of more than 23 kilojoules—the kinetic energy of a 20 millimeter cannon shell.
