Beam delivery update: Beam injected; Canada Day tomorrow 30 June 2015 Maintenance has finished and beam has just been injected into the cyclotron. The plan is to resume full operation and deliver ~110 µA to BL1A, 70 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4 overnight and for the remainder of the week.
Beam delivery update: Maintenance tomorrow; PT next week 29 June 2015 The cyclotron is currently delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 70 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. This is expected to continue until the start of tomorrow’s scheduled maintenance.
Beam delivery update: Cyclotron off due to water leak in RF system [UPDATED] 26 June 2015 The cyclotron tripped off earlier this afternoon due to a problem with the safety system. That was resolved, but before operation could resume a large leak opened up in the Cu-LCW system; the leak was found to be in the RF transmission line. The RF group is in the midst of repairing the line.
Beam delivery update: No plans to move TM4 25 June 2015 The cyclotron is delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 70 µA to BL2A, and ~93 µA to BL2C4. At ISAC, 26Al is being delivered to the ISAC Implantation Station for experiment S1171.
Beam delivery update: ISAC target investigations continuing 23 June 2015 The machine is currently delivering ~120 µA to BL1A, 65 µA to BL2A, and ~42 µA to BL2C4. At ISAC, investigations into the performance of the RIB production target will continue tomorrow.
Beam delivery update: Maintenance tomorrow; ISAC target startup underway 22 June 2015 The cyclotron is currently delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 10 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. BL2A will be stepped up towards 60 µA overnight as target conditions – vacuum, bias voltages and currents, etc. – allow. Maintenance will start at 08:30 tomorrow and is expected to take ~4 hours.
Beam delivery update: Beam development; ISAC target startup delayed 19 June 2015 Cyclotron beam development started at 08:30 this morning. That’s still continuing; it should wrap up shortly, at which point high-current operation in BL1A and BL2C4 will resume as scheduled.
Workshops & Conferences IsoSiM pushes for professional development 19 June 2015 The Isotopes for Science and Medicine (IsoSiM) program will continue to further their goal of training multidisciplinary scientists through their first ever summer school, hosted at TRIUMF from June 22 to June 30.
Beam delivery update: Cyclotron RF and ISAC tuning problems 17 June 2015 The cyclotron tripped off due to an RF crowbar around 08:20. It came back on again around 18:30 and is currently delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4; the hope is to run like this until the start of beam development and ISAC maintenance Friday morning.
Current Events Lecture to shine light on Dark Matter searches 17 June 2015 Science World and TRIUMF welcome SNOLAB's Dr. Chris Jillings to the Unveiling the Universe lecture series on Tuesday July 7. His talk, “The Search for Dark Matter or How to Know the Universe from a Hole in the Ground,” will shine a light on the worldwide search for dark matter.
