A five-volume report containing the blueprint for a future particle physics project, the International Linear Collider [ILC], was published on 12 June 2013. In three consecutive ceremonies in Asia, Europe and the Americas, the authors of the Technical Design Report [TDR] for the ILC officially handed it over to the international oversight board for projects in particle physics, the International Committee for Future Accelerators [ICFA]. The ILC TDR presents the latest, most technologically advanced and most thoroughly scrutinised design for the ILC, and its publication implies that physicists now have a machine that they know they can build. “The Technical Design Report basically says…

News, , ,

Lyn Evans has been appointed as the Linear Collider Director, the International Committee for Future Accelerators [ICFA] announced late last month. Evans, the first to hold this position, will bring together the governance of two existing accelerator programs: the Compact Linear Collider [CLIC] and the International Linear Collider [ILC].

β€œThe international particle physics community is fortunate to have Lyn at the helm of this new organization,” says Pier Oddone, ICFA chair and Fermilab Director…
