Unplugged: new magnet concept could lower CLIC’s power bill

by Barbara Warmbein

Spirits lifted by a motivating talk by CERN's new Director-General, scientists attending the recent CLIC workshop say that there’s a lot that’s happening in the world of the Compact Linear Collider study.

Director's Corner

US-Japan symposium

by Lyn Evans and Hitoshi Murayama

As is well known, the International Linear Collider (ILC) is being discussed as an International project, which means many countries around the world would contribute human, technical, and financial resources to the project. This is clearly a very complicated proposition and it takes effort from many directions to keep it moving.

New results on the search for gravitational waves – the video

by Perrine Royole-Degieux

You cannot possibly have missed that gravitational waves have recently been discovered by the LIGO-VIRGO scientific collaborations. But in case you missed the talk at CERN explaining it, you can watch it here. See also "A dream comes true" from the last issue of LC NewsLine, a personal view of the discovery by Barry Barish.

    The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) is an international intergovernmental organisation established in 1956 in Dubna to integrate the scientific and material potential of the member states of the institute to study fundamental properties of matter. The JINR includes 18 countries and six states that collaborate with it. Celebrations of the institute’s 60th anniversary in 2016 will help strengthen international scientific and technical cooperation, the credibility of one of the oldest international intergovernmental organisations and improving the social status of scientific activity.

    What if there was a technology that could accelerate particles with hundreds of times more power than current methods? The AWAKE experiment, under construction at CERN, is preparing to test this question with proton-driven plasma wakefield acceleration.
