Latest International Linear Collider Stories
Creating your own tabletop particle accelerator just got a little bit easier, according to scientists from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), who report that the laser lights used in these miniature units do not have to be as precise as previously believed.
Scientists gathered in Geneva, Switzerland last week to consider the possibility of building a particle accelerator four times the size as the current largest accelerator in the world.
A University of Oklahoma-developed theory provides the rationale for the next-generation particle accelerator—the International Linear Collider.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. However, technology like this could one day be simply sitting on a tabletop.
The US 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 US-built superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) niobium cavity to meet the exacting specifications of the proposed International Linear Collider (ILC).
The United States is losing its lead in high-energy physics, a field of science it's dominated since the 1930s. Scientists say Europe is now in the vanguard of a worldwide search to discover the deepest secrets that Mother Nature hides in bits and pieces of atoms.
