Third in a series on the role Berkeley
Lab researchers are playing in planning for the proposed International
Over a hundred groups of scientists from around the world are working
together to design the International Linear Collider (ILC), an accelerator
some 30 kilometers (19 miles) long that will collide electrons with their
antiparticles, positrons, to create a realm of new physics – and
the detectors needed to study it. Berkeley Lab physicists and engineers
have a key part in this enterprise.
