Superconducting radio-frequency

| 9 August 2012 In our new series LCpedia, ILC NewsLine deconstructs the ILC – with words. The technical terms that float around on slides, in conversations and the future Technical Design Report are explained here, short and sweet. We start the series with superconducting radio-frequency, or SCRF. Category: LCpedia | Tagged:

After the TDR: what’s next for ILC?

| 28 June 2012 New machines set new challenges for accelerator experts, and there are a number of challenges that the ILC R&D team has had to face before sitting down to write a convincing Technical Design Report. Beam test facilities in all regions have delivered and are still delivering important results. Project Manager Marc Ross takes stock. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Cavities in the spotlight

| 7 June 2012 Some 100 cavity and photo enthusiasts came to DESY last Wednesday to hear Karsten Büßer talk about "Cool Runnings" and see the picture story of cavities in the making by science photographer Heiner Müller-Elsner. The exhibition will be on show at DESY for a few more weeks. Read more here. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , ,

The secret life of cavities – not so secret any more

| 24 May 2012 There’s no doubt that the life of a cavity is exciting – lots of power, whizzing particles, superconductivity, the lot. How does it get there, what are the stations of its life? A new photo series is in production that follows a cavity from niobium ingot to cryomodule, and an exhibition of these images opens next week at DESY in Germany.

The potential of superconducting niobium cavities

| 17 May 2012 There are more than 30,000 particle accelerators in operation around the world. At Fermilab, US, scientists are collaborating with other laboratories and industry to optimise the manufacturing processes for a new type of powerful accelerator that uses superconducting niobium cavities.

Advances in SCRF cavity performance in the Technical Design Phase

| 29 March 2012 As a result of the continued improvement of cavity processing and a better understanding of the gradient limit, researchers are closely approaching their design goals, with the hope of reaching them by the end of 2012. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

PAC meeting in Taiwan: accelerator recommendations

| 14 July 2011 The ILC Program Advisory Committee met at Academia Sinica in Taiwan in May. They made a set of specific comments and recommendations regarding the accelerator R&D programme and GDE plans and progress towards a Technical Design Report.

Global Design Effort optimises industralisation models

| 26 May 2011 As part of Technical Design Phase 2, the Global Design Effort has been working towards more realistic and cost-effective industrialisation models for the production of superconducting radiofrequency cavities and cryomodules, as these are primary cost drivers in the ILC construction estimate. To that end, they have been organising a series of visit to cavity and material manufacturers and workshops. The next one is in July 2011 in Chicago, US.

Today’s technology in 18th-century framework

10 March 2011 The TESLA Technology Collaboration Meeting was held from 28 February to 3 March, hosted by the University of Milan and INFN Sezione di Milano. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , , ,

Preparing for SCRF industrialisation

| 3 March 2011 Developing a realistic plan for cost-effective production of the large number of ILC superconducting cavities and cryomodules is perhaps our most challenging task in preparing for the Technical Design Report. A new round of visits to industry is aimed at informing that effort. Category: Uncategorized | Tagged: , , ,
