Take part in the #mylinearcollider campaign!

Voice your dreams for the ILC

by Rika Takahashi

The Linear Collider collaboration has launched the video message campaign #mylinearcollider to visualise the support for the ILC from scientists around the world. Tell us why you want the ILC!

Efforts for the ILC to be matured “from Design to Reality”

by Akira Yamamoto

Things continue to evolve in the ILC design. In order to make sure that changes and optimisations formally make it into the new design, a change management board has been put into place, recounts Akira Yamamoto.

From the world to America: seeding superconducting accelerator technology through the ILC

by Leah Hesla

The superconducting technology at the heart of the ILC is one of the outstanding innovations of the machine’s design. The new kid on the block, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory’s light source LCLS II, owes much to the ILC's advances in superconducting radio-frequency technology.

Happy birthday CERN!

Sixty years and nowhere near retirement age: CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, celebrated its birthday this Monday with official delegations from 35 countries and many other invited guests. CERN is one of the pillars of linear collider R&D for both accelerators and detectors, so the Linear Collider Collaboration sends its congratulations and hopes that the next 60 years will be as productive, exciting and groundbreaking as the first.

    « si chiama International Linear Collider (Ilc) e il suo progetto è già molto maturo. Ma non sarà alternativa a Lhc. Lhc è uno strumento estremamente potente, la trivella con cui si cercano in profondità giacimenti di conoscenza. Ilc sarà uno strumento di precisione, fondamentale per capire i dettagli di un fenomeno. È importante che entri in funzione prima che Lhc abbia finito la sua attività, in modo che possano lavorare in parallelo almeno per qualche anno».

    Confrontés à l’impérieuse nécessité de collaborer – car aucun pays européen n’aurait pu, et ne pourrait aujourd’hui encore financer seul une telle organisation –, ils sont parvenus à dessiner les plans d’une institution souple, originale et performante. Actuellement, plus d’une dizaine de milliers de scientifiques, issus de six cents centres de recherche à travers le monde, continuent d’avancer sur le chemin tracé par ces quelques pionniers.

    The ministry also aims to spend $1m to continue studies for the proposed International Linear Collider (ILC), which Japan has expressed an interest in hosting.(…) Yamashita, a physicist at the University of Tokyo who chairs Japan’s ILC Strategy Council, says the country took a step towards international support for the $10bn project with initial political-level discussions with the US in July. “There is still a lot to do,” adds Yamashita.

    El LHC tiene una circunferencia de 27 kilómetros. El nuevo Future Cicular Collider o FCC tendrá entre 80 y 100 kilómetros de circunferencia, lo que lo convertirá en el colisionador de partículas más grande que se ha construido nunca.
