China is building a particle collider nearly four times the size of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and is expected to produce more than one million Higgs boson particles in its first decade. Plans for the Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC) – a 62-mile collider – was first announced in 2012, just months after the Higgs boson particle was discovered in the LHC. Now, researchers working on the project have released two new design reviews to show what they've been working on for the last six years and what they intend to do in the coming decades. The report shows how the CEPC dwarfed the LHC by nearly 17 miles. It outlines what the possibilities of the LHC can be with regard to the physics experiments to be performed ̵

It is located in an underground tunnel and consists of a linear accelerator, a damping ring, a booster, transport lines and a collider. It is a double-ring collider in which electrons and positron jets circulate in opposite directions in separate tubes. The tunnel in which he is located could also serve as a Super Proton Proton Collider (SppC) – a proposal that is currently under consideration. This "supercollider" would reach energies far beyond the LHC – the LHC was designed for a maximum collision energy of 14 TeV, while the SppC would work with an energy of 70 TeV. "The concept report indicates that we have completed the basics design of the accelerator, detector and civil engineering for the entire project," said Professor Gao Yuanning, chairman of the CEPC Institutional Board. "Our next step will focus on the research and development of Focus on key technologies and prototypes for the CEPC. "The design report was announced at a ceremony hosted by the Institute for High Energy Physics (IHEP) in Beijing, Geoffrey Taylor of the University of Melbourne, Chairman of the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA) and the Asian Committee for Future Accelerator (ACFA) said: "This is an important milestone on the way to such an important facility for basic physics." I have no doubt that the international community is looking for cooperation in the development and operation of the CEPC for a better understanding of the gru The essential components of matter are curious. "Over the next five years, scientists will conduct extensive research and key prototypes will build technical components for the CEPC. The infrastructure for the collider is also being built. Construction of the CEPC is expected to begin in 2022 and complete by 2030. If the CEPC is to be successful, the scientists hope that the SppC supercollider will be operational sometime in the 2030s. "As an Energy Frontier device, the SPPC could discover a whole new set of particles," says the new report. "Dark matter remains one of the most puzzling topics in particle physics and cosmology. The weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) are still the most plausible candidates for dark matter. "The researchers could say that the SppC could help to" significantly expand "the search for WIMPs, potentially providing answers to one of the greatest mysteries in the universe.
