LINACs in all (linear) shapes and sizes

| 4 September 2014 With more 200 linear accelerators around the world in operation for research, and more than 8000 linear accelerators serving industrial and medical application, future linear colliders played a small but important role at the LINAC14 conference this week in Geneva. It's R&D for future facilities that could make all linacs more efficient and reliable. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

A trip down main linac lane

| 13 September 2012 A team at DESY has created a complete virtual-reality three-dimensional ILC. They have combined information from various computer-aided design systems and about all areas of the ILC together in one model that you can now walk through. This model can highlight problems before they become costly and is a great motivator for the owners of the individual systems. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,
