Positron polarisation workshop: POSIPOL 2014, 27 – 29 August
POSIPOL 2014 will be held at the new library of Ichinoseki-city, Iwate. As the ninth of POSIPOL workshop series, POSIPOL 2014 will discuss issues of polarised positron sources, high intensity positron sources, X-ray/Gamma-ray sources, and their applications. The positron sources for the linear colliders, ILC and CLIC, will be main subjects, but positron sources for other colliders such as B-factories will also be discussed.

Barry Barish | 18 October 2012The S1-Global experiment was conceived to demonstrate the radiofrequency (RF) operation of an ILC cryomodule with an average accelerating gradient of 31.5 MV/metre. The project to build a segment of a superconducting linac system and test the string of superconducting RF cavities was carried out at KEK through a global collaboration. This experiment provided a significant and successful demonstration of the operation of eight nine-cell superconducting cavities and associated hardware components with components provided from laboratories around the world.

7 January 2010A big Christmas gift arrived at KEK from Italy. On 25 December, KEK's Superconducting radiofrequency Test Facility (STF) welcomed the cryomodule for "S1-global" - a crucial system test towards realizing the International Linear Collider (ILC), a proposed next generation electron-positron collider.
