Third in a series on the role Berkeley Lab researchers are playing in planning for the proposed International Linear Collider.

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.
