Physics at the Future Circular Collider

by Panagiotis Charitos

A two-day conference at CERN discussed the physics opportunities at Future Circular Colliders.

Theory goes forward to meet the FCC-ee strong experimental demands.

by Janusz Gluza & Alain Blondel

Bringing precision of theoretical calculations to the required level of the FCC-ee experiments can allow a broad exploration of  new frontiers in physics.

New dosimeter design for FCC

by Panos Charitos, Athina Papageorgiou Koufidou

The new Ultra High Fluence and Dose Radiation Sensor will allow irradiation tests of FCC equipment and, at a later stage, the monitoring of radiation levels in the FCC itself.

Highlights from the FCC Week 2017

The third meeting of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) design study took place in Berlin.

Hunting for right-handed neutrinos: the new game in town

by Alain Blondell (University of Geneva), Panos Charitos (CERN) and Richard Jacobsson (CERN)

Sterile neutrinos could answer many open questions of the Standard Model. Following searches at the LHC, future projects like SHiP and FCC could be game-changers exploring unchartered territories.

Interview with Guido Tonelli

by Panos Charitos

Guido Tonelli, former spokesperson of the CMS experiment reflects on the present situation in particle physics and the significance of having a vision for the future.​

Physics at 100 TeV

by Panos Charitos

A report discussing the opportunities for physics discoveries with a future 100 TeV hadron circular collider was presented earlier this summer...

Recently, members of the EP department came up with a conceptual detector magnet design for the  Future Circular Collider-hh study. This is largely based on a “Twin Solenoid” design that features two concentric superconducting solenoids to cope with the requirements of the FCC-hh study.

FCC-hh baseline layout and parameter set

by Daniel Schulte (CERN) with Alexandra Welsch (UNILIV)

A team of experts from collaborating institutes work under the study for a Future Circular Collider (FCC) on the parameters of hadron-hadron collider. They have recently reached the first important milestone at the end of September: a baseline for the machine layout and the main parameters of this collider.

Following the recent FCC Kick-off meeting we asked Michelangelo Mangano to share his thoughts about the importance of the FCC project and future prospects
