Science in the Obama era

| 19 March 2009 We will restore science to its rightful place, said President Barack Obama in his inauguration address. That statement has raised the hopes of the scientific community, and actions that have followed have further encouraged us to believe that we are entering a new era in the US that will have increased priority for the support of science. (...) It is worthwhile anticipating how all the changes will impact US science, high-energy physics, in particular, and finally on our efforts towards the ILC.

From Jefferson Lab News: ILC treatment of JLab cavity garners exciting result

5 February 2009 For the last few years, Jefferson Lab staff members have used the lab's unique facilities to test various accelerator components for a proposed next-generation collider, the International Linear Collider. Reminiscent of a stack of doughnuts, accelerator components called cavities energize particles for use in experiments that explore the smallest bits of matter.

From symmetry breaking: Project X collaboration forms, experiment moves forward

15 January 2009 Project X, a Fermilab-hosted international accelerator facility, could break ground as soon as 2013. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Harmonics of acceleration

| 8 January 2009 The majority of NewsLine readers are scientists – most of you of the experimental kind. So be honest: how often during the last few weeks, when listening to carols, plucking the strings of your old guitar that you only get out during the holidays or cringing at a dissonant brass band, did you think about the physics and the maths of music? Go to the ILCT-MDB Horizontal Test Stand at Fermilab now and you can experience a perfect third harmonic: that of a string of cavities being tested and assembled into a cryomodule.

It is that time of the year again

| 25 September 2008 Given the arcane nature of the US budgetary system, I will describe this process, since the resources available to us, or the lack thereof, serve to drive the scope of the US ILC R&D effort. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

The Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge Laboratory

| 18 September 2008 The recently completed Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) (...) project promises to move neutron science into a new era and both the execution of the project and some key technologies are of important to our efforts towards the International Linear Collider.

US National Science and Technology Summit

| 11 September 2008 The US government policy for support of science and technology is being developed around the 2007 America Competes Act , a consensus policy to strengthen long-term US economic competitiveness through science and technology. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

ILC community meets at LCWS and ILC08

| 21 August 2008 Which is the right word to complete this series: KEK, Snowmass, Hamburg, ... ? Chicago of course! After the first three venues, the fourth General ILC Workshop (ILC08) will take place in Chicago this year, organised in conjunction with the 2008 Linear Collider Workshop LCWS. As in the past, the workshop is supposed to bring detector and accelerator communities together. Results and plans from both worlds will be discussed in several joint plenary sessions.

LCFOA goes to Washington

7 August 2008 The Linear Collider Forum of America (LCFOA) held an ILC industrialisation meeting and briefing for Congressional staffers on Capitol Hill on 29 July. The briefing was attended by 46 persons from universities, industry, and laboratories and Congressional staff. About half of the attendees were Congressional staffers. The objective of the briefing was to emphasise the importance of a strong industrialisation component within the Americas Regional Team's Technical Design effort, describe other potential benefits of the ILC technologies for industry and the country, and to recommend the economic and educational benefits of siting the ILC at a U.S. site during the Technical Design phase timeframe to the U.S. audience.

From Fermilab Today: Citizens’ task force delivers recommendations

19 June 2008 When Fermilab reached out to neighbors five years ago to engage community members in laboratory decision making, some people in science and some neighbors doubted it would work. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,
