Calorimeters enjoy beam time

by Barbara Warmbein

Test beam season has started again. Two potential prototypes for future ILC detectors are being tested in a beamline at CERN that delivers hadrons from the proton synchrotron, CERN’s workhorse accelerator. The CALICE collaboration is looking forward to getting its hands on the fresh test beam data.

Director's Corner

Science for Peace

by Hitoshi Murayama

Hitoshi Murayama, Deputy Director of the Linear Collider Collaboration and Director of the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe will give a keynote speech at an event about "Science for Peace and Development" next week at UN headquarters in New York. This event takes place in the framework of CERN 60th anniversary, and his fellow speakers include UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Nobel Laureates Kofi Annan and Carlo Rubbia and CERN DG Rolf Heuer. Follow the event live by webcast.

#mylinearcollider: keep them coming

The #mylinearcollider campaign continues and the communicators are recording and receiving many various video messages, all in support of the linear collider. Watch a few videos if you need inspiration and, if you think that a video message is a bit too much, why not take a picture of yourself?


Full ILC-type cryomodule makes the grade

by Joykrit Mitra

All eight cavities in an ILC-type cryomodule achieved the accelerating gradient specified for the International Linear Collider earlier this month. The cryomodule, CM2, was developed and assembled to advance superconducting radio-frequency technology and infrastructure at Americas-region laboratories.

    “We’re also in working parties involved in looking at the next high energy accelerators,” Prof. Loebinger tells me. “The International Linear Collider which is being proposed, and more recently, there’s the very large collider that’s being proposed at CERN. The LHC is 27km in circumference, but the one that people are now muttering about and starting to work on would be 100km! Manchester’s involved in all of these.
