                            General Comment on Budget Figures
Office of Science


   Note: Apparent HEP budget changes in many subprogram areas reflect
   a change in the way that certain program overhead-type expenses
   (e.g., management, computing and networking, and engineering support)
   are charged at Fermilab.
    Fermilab and SLAC have not previously assessed these expenses across program elements,
     instead directly assessing Facility Operations for the full cost.
    Beginning in FY 2007 (after Congressional appropriations), Fermilab will assess these
     expenses through a proportional allocation across all activities at Fermilab, resulting in
     redistribution of funds among HEP B&R categories. FY 2008 funding reflects the expected
     redistribution. There is no net programmatic impact.
    Similar redistributions are in progress for SLAC as Facility Operations transitions to BES
     support. These changes are not yet incorporated into FY2008 HEP budget distributions.

                            Laboratory Infrastructure (GPP)
Office of Science
        HEP labs will invest more than $36M in FY 2008 to ensure infrastructure and facilities are properly
         maintained to support mission needs and minimize down time.

        $13M in GPP funds will be invested in recapitalization projects in 2008 at Fermilab, SLAC, and
         LBNL to make critical upgrades to infrastructure and facilities. Projects include:
           An addition to the Grid Computing Center at Fermilab as well as upgrades to the high voltage
             electrical system.
           Improvements to the Computing Center and other facilities at SLAC to better support research.
           Upgrades to wet and dry laboratories at LBNL to meet current research needs and other facility
             modifications to enhance seismic safety.


        HEP will continue to invest GPP resources which, along with the Science Laboratories
         Infrastructure Program, will ensure the laboratories have state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure
         to support their missions.

                            Program in 2008 – 2012
Office of Science


          The core strength of the University Physics Research program will increase in
           real terms in FY 2008-12 by approximately 15% (planned growth of ~6% per
           year starting 2010)
              A new component will be the build-up of effort for the ILC while maintaining strength
               on LHC, theory, and astro/cosmo. This new effort will come largely from redirection
               of other efforts, but may include some real growth of the manpower base.
              BaBar research will decrease during this time (from 10% to 0%).
              Tevatron research will be decreasing during this time (from 20% to 10%).
              Another new component during this period will be an increase in Equipment funds
               that will support university-based computing, new “small” experiments in dark
               matter, neutrino-less double beta decay, neutrino oscillations, proton decay, …and
               some restoration of university infrastructure.

             Submitted in July 2005
             Mission Needs approval granted in Nov 2005
         Options for EvA:
             NOvA: A large scale neutrino detector at Minnesota using NuMI beam
             T2K: Participation of US groups in Japanese experiment
             Do nothing
         A case of one Mission Need Statements resulting more than one venue
             NOvA: Included in FY07 budget as a line-item construction project
                    • Enclosure to house a detector at Minnesota needs to be built
                    • NOvA was reclassified as an MIE in FY08 budget submission (see next slide)
             Also plan to pursue a small scale effort of participation in T2K

Office of Science

       Decision on which option(s) to pursue for EvA was not made at the time of FY07 budget
        submission
       FY07 budget assumed NOvA with
          an enclosure to house a detector at Minnesota (estimated to be $20~30M)
          Fermilab will be the contractor to build this enclosure

  Since then -
   DOE conducted a successful CD-1 Lehman review for NOvA project
   Acquisition Strategy was developed → led to a change of funding type
   University of Minnesota proposed to build the far detector enclosure on its land with DOE
      financial assistance as part of its neutrino research program
         UM has experience constructing & operating Soudan Underground Lab & MINOS
         Far detector site will not have any other SC or DOE use
   NOvA will be executed as an MIE rather than a line-item construction project
         Financial assistance for far-detector enclosure will be a part of UM research grant and will
           be captured as a part of NOA OPC (ie. operating fund)
         Need to reprogram FY 2007 PED funds soon after FY07 appropriation occurs

    & NHPA (National Historic Preservation Act) process could be redone according to
    specifications, in response to suit filed by Tohono O’odham Indian Nation.
   Since NSF holds the lease to Kitt Peak, they are leading the NEPA/NHPA process with DOE
    acting as cooperating agency
   Had “government to government” meeting with Tohono O’odham Nation (TON) in January
    2006; NSF had another meeting with the TON in May and sent a draft MoU with proposed
    mitigating actions (sunset clauses, etc.) and waiting to hear TON response.
   Current status: VERITAS telescopes will be installed and commissioned at the Whipple Base
    camp (parking lot) by the end of 2006, while waiting for Kitt Peak access. They have been
    approved for a 2 year engineering run at Whipple, starting early 2007.

Office of Science


     Building upon the strength of HEP Accelerator R&D program, SCRF R&D in
     U.S. can be significantly improved from where we are today.
     This R&D program will include:
      FNAL: Coordinating role with infrastructure development for cavity, cryomodule and
     string tests
      ANL: High volume facility for surface preparation using buffered chemical polishing and
     electropolishing
      TJNAF: Development of new materials and maintain modest volume capability for
     cavity fabrication and electropolishing
      LANL: test stand for single cavities
      SLAC/LLNL: develop high power rf power systems
      Universities* (Cornell, Michigan State, William & Mary, Old Dominion, Wisconsin,
     Northwestern): modest surface preparation facilities, develop new electropolishing
     techniques, new cavity fabrication techniques, materials research.

                                                                                            62

                            the key to ILC R&D
Office of Science




  DOE/OHEP has recognized the generic importance of SCRF R&D and
  infrastructure and will define a budget category for it in FY 2007. Budget
  $23M (if FY2007 appropriation is at $60M).

  The FY2008 over target request of $47M for SCRF infrastructure and
  industrial partnership is essential for advancing ILC R&D, and for
  establishing the basis for future SC facilities. Without such infrastructure
  and industrial capability, the advanced DOE/SC accelerator facilities will
  not be possible.

  Developing high yield, cost-effective and reproducible SC cavities is the
  highest priority for the ILC R&D program worldwide.

Office of Science

   The US and its international partners are in the R&D phase
   to validate the technology, prepare the detailed design and
   cost of a future ILC project.
   ILC project approval will require successful completion of
   this R&D phase, validation of the scientific potential at the
   LHC, selection of a site and preliminary agreement on the
   partnership and potential roles. Project start would not
   occur before FY2012.
   The R&D phase will deliver much of the societal benefits –
   development of superconducting rf acceleration technology.
   Current R&D expenditures are equal in Asia, Europe and
   Americas (at $60M/yr in US accounting).

  Current R&D expenditures for Europe and Asia reported to GDE for current fiscal
  year (JFY starts 4/1; EUFY starts 3/1).
  Europe provided M&S and SWF direct funding. Adding indirect and overheads
  as done in US (average of SLAC and FNAL rates) and associating half the
  expenditures for the DESY XFEL as synergistic to ILC gives total (US accounting)
  of $58M. SWF to M&S ratio similar to US.
  Japan gives only M&S direct (not including funding though industry). Scaling
  their estimate up by European SWF/M&S ratio, adding indirect and overheads as
  above, and estimating total expenditures in China, S. Korea, India at $5M gives
  Asian total (US accounting) of $58M.


  Future outlook: Proposal to EU Framework 7 program for $100M level facilities.
  Both India and China indicate substantial increase in ILC funding. Increase
  detector R&D funding in Japan.

       The R&D phase of ILC R&D should follow a profile similar to that
       of a construction project. The synergy with SCRF activity is
       important to ILC as well as serving the broader DOE SC program.
       EPP2010 estimate (adding infrastructure, detector R&D not
       included) is a five-year integral of $820M.
       Without the SCRF effort the profile fails to meet the need to
       validate the ILC design or put the US in a position to make a
       credible bid to host.

                            Role of P5
Office of Science




          To develop and maintain the roadmap of the field
          To address relative priorities of (medium-sized) proposed projects within the
           program context


      (Ideally) P5 would be asked to compare the recommended options from the SAG
          process and prioritize relative to one another


      (More realistically) P5 will be given a nominal (optimistic but not “blue sky”)
         envelope of available funding for new initiatives and asked to prioritize within
         that constraint

                            Dark Energy Task Force - Report
Office of Science


     DETF was a subpanel of both HEPAP and AAAC
     Their final report was released in June 2006 and it was transmitted by HEPAP to DOE-HEP on July
     17, 2006 and by AAAC to DOE-HEP on June 30, 2006.

     From the report:
     Dark Energy could be Einstein‟s cosmological constant, new exotic form of matter or may signify a
     breakdown in Einstein‟s GR. To date, there are no compelling theoretical explanations for the dark
     energy, therefore, observational exploration must be the focus

     No single technique can answer the outstanding questions - need combinations of at least two of
     these
     techniques, at least one of which is a probe sensitive to the growth of cosmological structure in the
     form of galaxies and clusters of galaxies.

     Recommends medium term (stage III) and longer term (stage IV) program. Stage III should improve
     the DETF figure of merit (FOM) by at least a factor of 3 and stage IV by at least a factor of IV.
       DETF FOM: reciprocal of the area of the error ellipse enclosing the 95% confidence limit in the
     w0–wa plane.

     Recommends that high priority for near-term funding should be given to projects that improve our
     understanding of the dominant systematic effects

                                                                                                             84
