Colloquium - Hasan Padamsee (Cornell University) Prediction: Will Japan Choose to Build the International Linear Collider (ILC)?

October 11, 2018
Tuesday, January 15, 2019 - 3:45pm to 4:45pm
1080 Physics Research Building, Smith Seminar Room, reception at 3:30 in front of SSR
Hasan Padamsee (Cornell University) 1/15/19 Colloquium speaker

The ILC has been "in the air" now since the publication of TDR (Technical Design Report) in 2013 under Barry Barish as the head of the GDE (Global Design Effort). ( I was a member of the GDE. )  The accelerator has since evolved to start as a high intensity Higgs-physics machine  at 250 GeV, instead of the original design energy of 500 GeV.  This first stage will allow a cost reduction of about 40% from the TDR.  The world High Energy Physics community awaits a decision from Japan to acccept the challenge to build ILC with global  participation.  The decision is likely to come by the end of 2018.  

This talk will give a description of the ILC, the core superconducting acceleration technology and  the physics potential for the Higgs.  It will conclude with a prediction about the impending decision, and of course the basis for that prediction.
