International Linear Collider publishes its Technical Design Report

Earlier today n2doc posted the thread Japan mulls building next supercollider. I went poking around doing a little more research and found the above titled article. Thought it was worth a separate post.

From the Linear Collider Collaboration:

A five-volume report containing the blueprint for a future particle physics project, the International Linear Collider, was published on 12 June 2013. The Technical Design Report (TDR) marks the completion of many years of globally coordinated R&D and completes the mandate of the Global Design Effort. It contains all the elements needed to propose the ILC to collaborating governments, including a technical design and implementation plan, that are realistic and have been optimized for performance, cost and risk.

Highlights of the achievements include the successful construction and commissioning of superconducting radiofrequency test facilities for accelerators all over the world, great strides in the improvement of accelerating cavities production processes, and plans for mass production, as 16,000 superconducting cavities will be needed to drive the ILC’s particle beams. The details of the two state-of-the-art detectors that will record the collisions between electrons and positrons are also part of the report, as well as an extensive outline of the geological and civil engineering studies conducted for siting the ILC.


Six separate pdfs are available for the Technical Design Report, three under 10Mb each and a total of 229Mb for the other three.

The Outreach document provides a good overview of the project, with lots of glossies like the one below. The content of the outreach document is duplicated on the General Public website. The Physics document (volume 2) provides more detailed, but still accessible, technical information.



Another great international collaborative project to carry us deeper into the mechanisms of our universe.
