Laboratories and industry in tune for particle physics detector R&D in Europe

| 19 April 2021 10 million euros. This will be the amount granted to members of the AIDAinnova project funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme. As particle physics requires highly-specialised detection equipment, often on an industrial scale, this project will be strongly marked by the collaboration between industry and academic institutions. Coordinated by CERN, it will explore advancement and innovation for particle physics detectors, including those proposed for the ILC. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

New results on the search for gravitational waves – the video

| 3 March 2016 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.

Einstein’s E=mc2 explained in 2 minutes

| 2 April 2015 110 years ago, Albert Einstein published four historical papers... and a very famous equation.For this special birthday, Symmetry Magazine succeded to explain, in a very simple way, how E=mc2, an equation "used" everyday in particle accelerators, has radically changed our way of doing physics. Watch the animation and read also Symmetry Magazine's related article. Category: Video of the week | Tagged:

The ILC is a fantastic accelerator, Nobel says

| 19 March 2015 Professor David Gross speaks in strong support for the International Linear Collider, a "fantastic new accelerator". He says that for the exploation of the properties of the Higgs‬, the promise of new particles, forces and a new understanding the ILC is one of "the most exciting prospects." He says the he "applauds the Japanese government and Japanese colleagues for leading the effort to host the ILC in Japan, and I trust and hope that the international community will join this effort." David Gross was awarded the ‪NobelPrize‬ in Physics in 2004 along with Frank Wilczek and David Politzer. He is a theoretical physicist at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC Santa Barbara. Category: Video of the week | Tagged:

Altogether now: ILC! #mylinearcollider

| 5 March 2015 This video of support for the ILC was recorded during the latest project meeting of ATF2 which took place from 24 to 26 February 2015 at LAPP laboratory in Annecy, France. Your message really makes difference. Participate in the #mylinearcollider video campaign, and ask your colleagues and friends to join, too! Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , , , ,

The ILC blues

| 8 January 2015 This week we're pleased to present you a rather original message submitted on our Youtube channel to support the ILC project. Featuring P. Q. Hung, Professor of Physics, with the participation of Duong Quoc Dat, Graduate student, both from the University of Virginia, US. You too can contribute (even if you don't sing!) by participating in the #mylinearcollider video campaign. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: ,

Why we need the ILC now #mylinearcollider

| 11 December 2014 This week we're featuring one of the 435 videos posted on the ILC Youtube channel to support the ILC project. Hasan Padamsee is a physicist at Fermilab, USA. Watch him explain why he thinks whe should build the ILC now! You too can contribute by participating in the #mylinearcollider video campaign. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: ,

Newly formed European linear collider forum to increase communication with the project board

| 3 April 2014 The Linear Collider Board is the main decision body to promote and oversee the linear collider and its detectors as a worldwide collaborative project. In Europe, a new body, the European Linear Collider Forum, has just been launched to channel European discussions concerning the ILC and CLIC and to facilitate input for the international Linear Collider Board. Anyone interested to participate is invited to register to the mailing list. Will you take part? Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

A day in the life of a particle physicist in Kitakami

| 20 February 2014 The life of a particle physicist is the same everywhere in the world one might say. It’s true that the physicist’s work life at the future ILC is easily predictable. Computing and data taking or analysis, meeting with colleagues, tons of coffee and tea, short lunch breaks at the cafeteria (with “electron” and “positron” menus?), preparing for future meetings in the afternoon, plus, for the lucky ones, night shifts for a detector or machine survey. I’m not going to tell you anything new about what you know already. Let me tell you the other side of the story, regarding your afterwork life at the Kitakami site. Put on your most comfy easy-to-take-off shoes – there is much to visit here - and follow me to the Tohoku region. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,
