About Barry Barish

Barry Barish is Linde Professor, Emeritus at the California Institute of Technology Caltech. From 2005 to 2013 he was Director of the Global Design Effort and, apart from leading the collaboration to the publication of the ILC's Technical Design Report, wrote more than 300 Director's Corners.

Novosibirsk revisited: integrating former weapons scientists

| 14 October 2010 [...] The ISTC was established by international agreement in November 1992 as a nonproliferation programme. The mandate is to help develop alternative professional careers for the scientists, engineers and technicians from the former Soviet Union who used to develop weapons. High-energy physics has been both a beneficiary and a partner in this programme. -- Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Novosibirsk

| 7 October 2010 I had the interesting experience recently of spending four days at a meeting in Novosibirsk, Russia... at the Budker Institute for Nuclear Physics (BINP), a famous laboratory credited with many of the innovations in modern particle accelerators.

Developing an ILC Project Implementation Plan

| 9 September 2010 [...] Another important step is to develop a Project Implementation Plan (PIP) as a way to outline the options, models and plans for realising the ILC as a project. -- Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

ILC R&D plan updated

| 2 September 2010 [...] For the technical part, especially with the limited resources we have available, we have defined a prioritised R&D programme, and a design effort focused on cost, performance and risk optimisation. This programme is main subject matter of the newly released R&D Plan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

ICHEP addresses the future of high-energy physics

| 19 August 2010 [...] Whatever new large projects will be in our future, we are building a strategy and timing for decisions, where the scientific results and imperatives can determine our choices. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

ICHEP opens the LHC era

| 12 August 2010 [...] The ICHEP conference broadly covered the field of high-energy physics from new limits on the search for the Higgs from the Tevatron to reviews of future technology and projects. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,
