Concept Design Report shows off CERN’s plans for Future Circular Collider

The Future Circular Collider (FCC) collaboration proposed a new circular collider to be built that will dwarf the world's largest collider, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), having nearly four times the length of the LHC.

"While presenting new, daunting challenges, the FCC would greatly benefit from CERN's expertise, accelerator complex and infrastructures, which have been developed over more than half a century", said Bordry. A large proton collider would present a leap forward in this exploration and decisively extend the physics programme beyond results provided by the LHC and a possible electron-positron collider, ' said CERN director for research and computing, Eckhard Elsen.

Named the Future Circular Collider (or FCC), the new machinery would be capable of "unprecedented sensitivity" in the study of particle behaviour, with over seven times the power output of the LHC. The energy equivalent is up to 100 TeV from the FCC, which is described as an order of magnitude higher than the LHC offers.

CERN said the FCC Machine will "use new-generation high-field superconducting magnets while its high energy levels will allow precise studies of how a Higgs particle interacts with another Higgs particle". Right now, there is no guarantee that the machine will be built; several other proposals for a new particle accelerator have been drawn only to later be rejected.

Once activated, the FCC's lifespan will be between 15 and 20 years.

The first of these stages would collide electrons and positrons.

The FCC design study was a huge effort, possible only thanks to a large global collaboration. The organization says that the complex machinery required for the experiments will inspire new technologies and innovation, which will have an impact on the economy and society as a whole-just as the discovery of the electron in 1897 eventually led to the electronics industry which is now valued at an estimated $3 trillion, AP reported. Such a collider would be a very powerful "Higgs factory", making it possible to detect new, rare processes and measure the known particles with precisions never achieved before.

The cost of the initial electron-positron collider (EPC) would cost around 9 billion euros, while the 100-km tunnel to house it would cost an additional 5 billion. The cost estimate for a superconducting proton machine that would afterwards use the same tunnel is around €15bn.

CERN also outlined plans to building another machine which will be incorporated into the same tunnel and is expected to come online in the late 2050s.

Plans for the FCC will be submitted next to an global panel of scientists that will discuss and decide whether it will be included in the new European strategy for particles physics, which is due to be published in 2020.

The conceptual report will be considered as part of a new European strategy for particle physics.
