Bump or no bump

| 11 August 2016 High Energy Physics (HEP) has always been a field with great discoveries and the field seems to be ‘storming’ forward as some attendees of this ICHEP declared. Not only new LHC results were the center point of this conference but also the discovery of gravitational waves, new neutrino measurements and of course future facilities like the ILC and CLIC.

In the light of new accelerators

| 22 July 2016 Did you know that more than 1000 superconducting radiofrequency cavities for roughly 150 cryomodules are needed for accelerator projects which are seeking approval at the moment? And it’s more than 24000 cavities if we add the ILC and the FCC. The TESLA Technology Collaboration meeting is one of the key events to attract SCRF experts from all the world The latest one was held at the beginning of the month, at CEA Saclay, France.

From metal sheet to particle accelerator (part 3 of 3)

| 12 May 2016 If you're an electron, a ride in a cavity is pretty much the coolest thing that can happen to you. If you're an accelerator and you need huge numbers of cavities you better make sure they're all of outstanding quality – which is what the X-ray free-electron laser European XFEL under construction in Hamburg has just finished. In a series first published in DESY inForm, we look at how a niobium sheet turns into a curvy beauty. Part three describes how they make their way from test benches into the cryomodules and, finally, into the tunnel. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Akira Yamamoto awarded the Medal with Purple Ribbon

| 28 April 2016 On 28 April, the Japanese government announced the winners of the "Medal with Purple Ribbon" for 2016, and Akira Yamamoto, professor of KEK and Regional Director for Asia of Linear Collider Collaboration, is one of them. He receives the Medal for his contribution to the advancement of superconducting technology. This medal is awarded to individuals who have contributed to academic and artistic developments, improvements and accomplishments. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

SRF Technology getting ready for the ILC: A Report from Whistler

| 1 October 2015 Reporting almost live from Whistler, Canada, Akira Yamamoto says progress is impressive. The conference SRF 2015 covered the latest advances in the science, technology, and applications of superconducting RF, including leading SRF accelerator projects, such as European XFEL, the European Spallation Source, FRIB, and the LCLS-II project.

Ten Years and Counting…

| 20 August 2015 As is appropriate for an anniversary issue, this week's Director's Corner is authored by Barry Barish, who led the project from its conception in 2005 through major milestones up to the publication of the Technical Design report in 2013 and the formation of the Linear Collider Collaboration. He looks back at past achievements and advises the linear community to remain very, very patient. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

The European XFEL – helping pave the way for the ILC

| 11 June 2015 The European XFEL at DESY, Germany, will be a brilliant light source for a broad range of fundamental research in all areas of science – but it is also the first great mass production of the so-called TESLA technology. The ILC community is thus watching the construction of the European XFEL very closely. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

From Fermilab Today: Superconducting test accelerator achieves first electron beam

2 April 2015 Fermilab's advanced superconducting test accelerator was built to take advantage of SRF technology accelerator research and development. Last week, after more than seven years of planning and building by scientists and engineers, the accelerator has delivered its first beam. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,
