Accelerating around the globe: big logistics experiment kicks off with Pre-lab phase

| 1 June 2021 The devil is in the detail. If a particle physics experiment doesn’t work, it’s often the low-tech components that cause trouble, not the high-tech ones, because the high-tech ones have been tested to the core. To avoid teething and logistics problems for the ILC, a project called “Cryomodule Global Transfer” will kick off next year. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

ILC Preparatory Laboratory proposal released

| 1 June 2021 After ten months of work, the ILC International Development Team, mandated to prepare the ILC Preparatory Laboratory, is reaching the first milestone with the release of a proposal which outlines the organisational framework, an implementation model and work plan of the Pre-lab. Many scientists contributed to this effort, showing the great interest of the community in the ILC project. A signal from the Japanese government towards indicating its interest in hosting the ILC and supporting the Pre-lab would now be required for gaining stronger engagement of interested laboratories around the world.

STF-2 Beam Operation Demonstrates ILC Specifications

30 May 2019 KEK’s Superconducting RF Test Facility (STF) operated the first beams during February and March 2019 and demonstrated results that satisfy the specifications for the International Linear Collider (ILC). Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

The ILC at 250 GeV: an overview of options

| 5 April 2018 Shinichiro Michizono, Associate Director for the ILC in the Linear Collider Collaboration, takes a look at the proposed 250-GeV ILC from an accelerator expert’s point of view. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Forming a new plan for R&D

| 20 October 2016 First bilateral discussions between the Japanese and US administrations have led to a new emphasis in accelerator R&D for the linear collider that is both good and bad, Lyn Evans says. More bilateral discussions between Japan and European and Asian countries will follow. In the meantime, the community will lay down plans for SCRF research for the next two to three years during a dedicated workshop-in-a-workshop in December. Evans, current Director of the Linear Collider Community, hopes for great turnout. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Interesting times

| 6 October 2016 Future ex-Director Mike Harrison dedicates his last corner to describing the challenges that come with a change of emphasis in the R&D. The main R&D goal is optimised SCRF cost coupled with optimal design – but it's not that easy, Harrison says. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Changes in LCC and in the US regarding ILC

| 11 August 2016 The mandate of the current LCC structure ends at the end of 2016 and ICFA has now put a revised structure in place. There has also been a change in the way the US supports ILC activities. Harry Weerts, current regional director for the Americas, describes these changes and how they will affect ILC activities.

Bump or no bump

| 11 August 2016 High Energy Physics (HEP) has always been a field with great discoveries and the field seems to be ‘storming’ forward as some attendees of this ICHEP declared. Not only new LHC results were the center point of this conference but also the discovery of gravitational waves, new neutrino measurements and of course future facilities like the ILC and CLIC.

International Linear Collider community meets at ECFA workshop LCWS16

| 23 June 2016 The European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) hosted a Linear Collider Workshop from 30 May to 5 June in Santander, Spain, and offered many opportunities to exchange knowledge and technical know-how to over 200 scientists from all around the world. The ILC community and the CLIC community used this workshop to come together and present their recent developments and new findings in many plenary talks and a large number of parallel sessions. Both projects show their steady progress. But not only science and advancements were the focus of the workshop – also industrial partners and important political developments had their slot on the packed workshop schedule.
