[en] The author is honored to receive the 2009 Robert Wilson Prize and the recognition that comes with it. The citation for the prize reads, 'For his outstanding contribution to the design and construction of accelerators that has led to the realization of major machines for fundamental science on two continents and his promotion of international collaboration.' In this article, he will discuss the two construction projects, which he led, one (TRISTAN e+e- Collider at KEK) in Japan and the other (RHIC at BNL) in the USA, covering project issues and lessons learned from these projects. Although both of them were built on separate continents, it is interesting to note that they are both built on long off-shore islands. He will also add comments on his recent engagement in the development of the Conceptual Design for the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II).
[en] A tagging gas releasing element which is contained in a nuclear fuel rod to release a tagging gas for detecting a failed fuel. The element comprises an inorganic solid material holding the tagging gas therein. The tagging gas is composed of a rare gas, and is held in the inorganic solid material in an injected or adsorbed state
[en] Proceedings of the Symposium that celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the US/Japan Collaboration in High Energy Physics. The goals of this Symposium were to reflect on the past activites and accomplishments of the collaboration, discuss the ongoing programs, and look forward to future propsects. Because the scope of this collaboration over the past 30 years encompasses a vast number of experiments and projects, we regrettably had to limit the presentations for the experimental and R and D programs at the Symposium to highlights on selected topics. The Symposium participants included 46 people from the Japanese side, and 31 people from the US side.
[en] With the gold beam operation at the Brookhaven AGS started in 1992, and with the lead beam operation at the CERN SPS planned for 1994--1995, investigation of high nucleon density states through high energy heavy ion collisions is becoming a reality. In addition, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at BNL, which is dedicated to the study of ultra-high energy heavy ion collisions, is under construction with a target completion date in 1997. There also is a plan to run the proposed CERN LHC for a few months a year for the heavy ion program. These colliders should provide opportunities to extend our knowledge of nuclear matter to the extraordinary states of extreme high temperature and high density, thus opening the way to the creation and study of quark-gluon plasma. The lattice gauge calculation based on the theory of strong interactions (QCD) predicts that, at such states, quarks and gluons are deconfined from individual nucleons and form a hot plasma. In this paper, the status of heavy ion stationary target programs at the BNL AGS and the CERN SPS, the progress of RHIC construction, and heavy ion research potential at LHC will be presented. The status of the CERN LHC will be covered elsewhere in these Proceedings
[en] An overview of the RHIC project, recent project status, and R ampersand D progress on its superconducting magnets are presented. Also discussed are the current construction and experimental programming plans at RHIC, including an announcement for a call for letters of intent for experiments. 6 figs., 1 tab
