From ILC Newsline: A research team at Jefferson Lab has developed its own detailed set of rules for optimal cleaning. Team members have been working on a regimen for removing imperfections and impurities from superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) niobium cavities.
American Superconductor Corporation announced that it has selected LS Cable and Nexans as superconductor power cable subcontractors for the Tres Amigas SuperStation.
Todd Adams, Associate Professor at the Florida State University Department of Physics, has been elected chair of Fermilab's Users Executive Committee (UEC) for a term of one year.
The ALPHA experiment at CERN has made an important step toward the investigation of the difference between matter and antimatter: it has successfully produced and trapped atoms of antihydrogen.
LNG cold energy is at the heart of a new air separation unit (ASU) recently brought onstream in China, the first of its kind.
Amit Goyal, a researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has been named R&D magazine's Innovator of the Year.
A report recommending additional funding and organizational restructuring for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has led to drastic changes for the project.
An interview with Dr. Philippe Lebrun, former head of the Accelerator Technology Department for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), where he discusses plans for the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC). CLIC is in the conceptual design phase, not yet approved. Although aiming at the same goal for physics, i.e. colliding electrons and positrons at high center-of-mass energy, CLIC would use a different technology from the International Linear Collider. It would be a shorter machine using non-superconducting Radio Frequency technology. This machine would go to higher accelerating gradients than the ILC for the same final energy.
From Fermilab Today, November 15: A group of preteen girls entered the Fermilab exhibit tent on the Washington, D.C. Mall and pushed forward to stare at the numbers whizzing by on an electronic counter. 6,000. 6,015. Their foreheads crinkled.
From Fermilab Today, November 11: "I am announcing today, November 11, a voluntary separation offer to bring Fermilab operations into balance with the resources we expect this fiscal year, FY11.

A photo gallery from the recent ICEC23/ICMC2010 is now available on the conference website.
SGD Productions, LLC. has introduced a new safety video entitled, "The Control and Safe Handling of Compressed Gases."
From ILC Newsline, October 28, Director's Corner with Peter H. Garbincius, Global Design Effort Cost Manager: The International Linear Collider community has typically held major meetings twice a year where the accelerator and physics and detector people come together, both to review the status of and make progress in their own disciplines, and to work together in areas of mutual concern, such as the beam and luminosity requirements to attain the desired science goals.
From Fermilab Today's November 9 Director's Corner: With the changes in the Congress following the mid-term election last week, we have an increased sense of uncertainty regarding our funding for FY 2011 and FY 2012, and hence greater uncertainties for the programs we are embarked on.
The European XFEL project has completed one of the first in a series of future milestones: excavating 480 meters of the tunnel system for the project.
