Latest Global Design Effort Stories
A University of Oklahoma-developed theory provides the rationale for the next-generation particle acceleratorâthe International Linear Collider. The discovery of the Higgs boson at the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Geneva Switzerland this past year prompted particle physicists to look ahead to the development of the ILC, an electron-positron collider designed to measure in detail all the properties of the newly discovered Higgs particle. Howard Baer, professor in the OU...
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility marked a step forward in the field of advanced particle accelerator technology with the successful test of the first U.S.-built superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) niobium cavity to meet the exacting specifications of the proposed International Linear Collider (ILC). The cavity was developed as part of a DOE-funded R&D effort focused on developing technologies that would be required for an ILC,...
