Behind the scenes

by Barbara Warmbein

When a camera crew descends on a research lab, places that scientists see every day can suddenly appear totally different. When WG3 leader Jenny List showed the APS TV team and presenter Nico Gutjahr around the German lab DESY, a control room became the setting for a one-on-one interview and the accelerator module test facility turned into an interactive classroom. Here are some impressions from the video shoot for the latest ILC video. All images: Joseph Piergrossi, DESY

    An additional benefit arising from the technology being developed is that it could enable the construction of positron beam accelerators 1,000 times smaller than is currently possible. As such, the future International Linear Collider planned in Japan with a length of 31 km, could be as short as 31 m.

    Сотрудники центра «Перспективные технологии в микроэлектронике» ТГУ разрабатывают инновационные технологии создания многоэлементных сенсоров на основе арсенида галлия, компенсированного хромом (HR GaAs:Cr), и на основе монокристаллического сапфира. Они оптимизируют характеристики арсенид-галлиевых сенсоров и оценят перспективность использования новых сапфировых сенсоров для инструментального обеспечения отечественных мегасайенс-проектов СКИФ (Новосибирск), НИКА (Дубна), РИФ (Владивосток), международного проекта ILC (International Linear Collider) и других.

    The aim of this new series is to create an information and discussion forum in which to present the various activities related to the different projects being studied: the Future Circular Collider (FCC), the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) / International Linear Collider (ILC) and the Muon Collider.

    In the coming years, the International Linear Collider (ILC) might be built 100 meters underground in the mountains. When we hear the term “accelerator,” we are likely to think of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) near Geneva, Switzerland. But while the LHC is circular, with a circumference of 27 km, the ILC planned for Tohoku is linear, extending for 20 km.

    Discussions about sustainability have also been part of planning the proposed International Linear Collider in Japan. Known as the “Green ILC,” a group of researchers are working on ways to make the facility more environmentally friendly, such as using renewable energy to power the collider and recovering and reusing energy for local communities.

    The ILC provides a useful counterpoint to some of the other accelerator proposals evaluated by the ITF. “ILC is shovel ready, and if you give us the money, we’re going to build it,” Turner says.

    They looked at CERN’s Future Circular Collider (FCC), China’s Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC), and three proposed linear colliders: Japan’s Linear Collider, CERN’s Compact Linear Collider, and the US’ Cool Copper Collider (C 3). The least-polluting option, the study found, was the FCC.

    Le fabbriche di Higgs alternative a Fcc considerate nello studio appena pubblicato sono il Circular Electron Positron Collider (Cepc) cinese, lo International Linear Collider (Ilc) giapponese, il Compact Linear Collider (Clic) del Cern e il Cool Copper Collider (C3) statunitense (Ilc, Clic e C3 sono acceleratori lineari, a differenza di Lhc, Fcc e Cepc che sono circolari): gli scienziati ne hanno valutato l’impatto ambientale considerando quanta energia consumerebbero, in media, per ogni bosone di Higgs prodotto.

    Stando ai dati riportati, il consumo di FCC è pari a 3 MWh per ogni bosone di Higgs prodotto. L’impatto ambientale di FCC viene confrontato con quello di altri acceleratori: il Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC) cinese, l’ International Linear Collider (ILN) giapponese, il Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) del Cern e il Cool Copper Collider (C3) statunitense.
