The challenge of technology

| 25 July 2013 Now that the ILC Technical Design Report is published, does it mean the design is frozen? In this corner, ILC Director Mike Harrison explains how maintaining the technical flexibility to obtain the maximum benefit from ILC R&D and other current projects is both a challenge and a necessity, especially for major cost drivers like the ILC cryomodules.

Take two for cryomodule 2

| 11 July 2013 With the repair and reinstallation of the cryomodule known as CM2, Fermilab researchers are back on the road towards achieving the International Linear Collider’s R&D “S1” goal: operating a cryomodule at ILC gradient specifications.

Fermilab’s Cryomodule 2 installation

Video: Jim Shultz | 3 May 2012 Last week Fermilab's Cryomodule 2 was transported to the laboratory's NML building. Watch trucks, cranes and people move and install the ILC-type cryomodule in a time-lapse video. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , , ,

Doing the cryomodule shuffle

| 19 April 2012 Out with the old, in with the new! Having completed a successful run of tests on Cryomodule 1, Fermilab researchers remove it from its current home and install Cryomodule 2. The new device’s components have shown promise, and with the experience from the earlier cryomodule brought to bear on the next, the team hopes to realise the ILC gradient goals at Fermilab before long.

CM2 assembly nearly complete

| 15 December 2011 Fermilab will soon begin operating CM2, a significant advancement in work on superconducting radiofrequency research that will serve the ILC community and Fermilab in building and operating future accelerators. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,

From Fermilab Today: Fermilab begins operation of first SRF cryomodule

| 9 December 2010 Years of effort by more than 100 staff members at Fermilab have led to the cooldown of Cryomodule 1 at the laboratory's SRF Accelerator Test Facility. At 11 a.m. on Nov. 22, liquid helium flowed through CM1, cooling it to 2 Kelvin (-271° C). Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,
