Cern experts say the new linear collider will be a "scalpel" examining newly discovered particles chipped off atoms by the LHC, which was launched with great fanfare by Dr Evans in September 2008.
Dr Evans, now 67, has come out of retirement to unify the two linear collider projects and represent the combined effort to the worldwide science community and funding agencies.
Though any new collider is unlikely to be built until 2025, the Cern team wish to get a head-start, concerned by the 25-year wait it took between proposing the first collider, and its completion in 2008.
Designed to find and study the Higgs boson, this new particle collider replaces Fermilab as the leading particle physics facility in the world with an energy seven times higher.
If black holes are in fact produced in future colliders, that would mean they also have been relentlessly zipping in and out of existence in the atmosphere for billions of years.
He set his experiments in 2011 at a European accelerator, known as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which is currently under construction.
By exposing instances of CP violation suspected to lie in B decays but unaccounted for in the prevailing theory, the colliders offer physicists a chance to finally confound the 20-year-old theory known as the standard model.
To some theorists, this observation constitutes the first tantalizing hint in collider data that a so-called supersymmetry theory may provide a more complete, unified picture of nature than the widely accepted, but incomplete, standard model of particle physics.
But that still leaves a vast energy domain unexplored, much of it inaccessible to even the most powerful of today's colliders.
Physicists working through the night on the new particle collider under construction at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) have achieved a major milestone: In the early morning of May 26 they successfully recorded the first events in the detector that surrounds the point where the massive machine`s two particle beams collide.
Presently he leads the 4th Concept detector group for a future electron linear collider or muon collider.
An electron-positron collider is the natural successor to the LHC and it turns out the wake fields are much more severe in these linear collider machines," he added.
