CLIC article in ESU focus issue of Nature Physics journal

A CLIC article is part of an April 2020 focus issue of Nature Physics journal on the European Strategy for Particle Physics


CLIC represents a compelling opportunity for the post-LHC era

In a recent comment on future particle accelerators in Nature Review Physics, Steinar Stapnes, the CLIC project leader at CERN, reports on the key CLIC concepts and the crucial parameters for planning of a large accelerator.

The CLIC project is ready to proceed towards construction – report from the annual CLIC week

The annual Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) workshop brings together the full CLIC community, this year attracting more than 200 participants to CERN, 21-25 January. 

End-of-run rush for CLIC pixel detectors in test beams

Several silicon pixel-detector technologies are being explored in view of the challenging requirements for the CLIC vertex and tracking detectors in terms of high spatial resolution, precise hit timing and very low material budget. 

High-gradient X-band technology: from TeV colliders to light sources and more

The role of high-gradient and X-band technology is expanding steadily, with applications at a surprisingly wide range of scales.

CLIC Workshop 2018 Focuses on Strategy

The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) workshop is the main annual gathering of the CLIC accelerator and detector communities, and this year attracted more than 220 participants to CERN, 22-26 January.

EU project lights up X-band technology

Advanced linear-accelerator (linac) technology developed at CERN and elsewhere will be used to develop a new generation of compact X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs), thanks to a €3 million project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.
