"Super Collider" is put forward in China in 2012, the high energy physics circles for the future of the LHC project, the final size will be several times in the Large Hadron Collider is the world's largest and highest energy particle collider in CERN - (LHC). Therefore, due to its huge cost, has repeatedly set off the discussion within the field of Physics: supporters think "Super Collider" will become the world China Physics Research Center, and to stimulate technological progress; opponents argue that the huge cost, the price is not high, and there are some controversial scientific goals.
As the main promoters of the project, China academician, Academy of Sciences China Science Institute of high energy physics director Wang Yifang said, for any big scientific device, pre research work on the project and the final construction plays an important role. In terms of the "Super Collider", he hopes to solve the key problems through 5 years of efforts, and strive to start building during the "14th Five-Year" period.
Of course, such a large scientific device has raised unprecedented standards for industrial design, manufacturing and processing in china. Wang Yifang said: "we need a lot of equipment, China can not produce now."." Therefore, his team made a goal, namely the localization rate of annular electron positron collider project will be higher than 95%, the basic research and the current reliance on imported instruments are essentially different. He also believes that these key technologies are essential for future accelerators, and will be used in other areas, and have important implications.
Wang Yifang said in a recent interview China Youth Daily - youth online interview with reporters, at present, design and technical research plan has been basically formed in November 7th, IHEP combined with more than 40 enterprises set up a "CEPC industry promotion", its purpose is to further coordinate the pre research of related technology, the key technology in organizing joint research breakthroughs.
In fact, the input and output of large scientific facilities than some of the studies, such as for large accelerator devices in high-energy physics research, generally accepted in 1 to about 3, which invested 1 yuan, 3 yuan of output.
Wang Yifang said that these billions of dollars of investment, not only has brought great returns in science, but also led the development of technology. One of the most famous example is the CERN, in order to solve the problem of data sharing between scientists, the invention of the "World Wide Web" - a technology today almost no one can leave.
