Final beam delivery update of the year 23 December 2015 At ISAC, DRAGON is continuing to take 76Se from the OLIS multicharge ion source for experiment S1318. That is scheduled to end this evening, at which point ISAC will join the cyclotron in being shut down for the year.
Cyclotron off for 2015 22 December 2015 The cyclotron was defined off for the last time in 2015 at about 04:00 this morning.
One more night… 21 December 2015 Cyclotron operation in support of scheduled experiments ended at 08:30 this morning and we’re into the final hours of beam development for the year.
Two ISAC experiments and PIF running 17 December 2015 The cyclotron continues to run normally and is delivering 9.8 µA to BL2A and beam as needed to BL1B for PIF. No changes are expected before the scheduled end of beam delivery Monday morning.
And then there were two… 16 December 2015 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering 9.8 µA to BL2A and beam as needed to BL1B for PIF operation. This is expected to continue through the weekend.
Power bump this morning; operation resumed 15 December 2015 After suffering a major power bump at 05:38, the cyclotron has been operational since shortly after 15:00. Machine tuning is still underway but BL2A and BL2C4 are both online; PIF operation on BL1B will resume shortly.
Power bump; systems being restored [UPDATED] 15 December 2015 There was a massive power bump just before 05:40 that tripped a number of key systems. It’s not clear how long it will take to restore operation.
Brief interruption early tomorrow for ISAC MSR access; ~4 hours' development later 14 December 2015 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering 9.8 µA to BL2A, ~95 µA to BL2C4, and beam as needed to BL1B for PIF operation. This is expected to continue overnight.
Awards & Honours TRIUMF Photo Wins Global Physics Photowalk 14 December 2015 Vancouver photographer wins Global Physics Photowalk 2015 competition by capturing her childhood memories in TRIUMF photo.
RF problems fixed; cyclotron running normally 10 December 2015 The machine is running normally and delivering 9.8 µA to BL2A and beam as needed to BL2C1. PIF operation is expected to finish for the night by about 03:00; BL2C will be switched to BL2C4 for STF operation and the BL1B energy increased back to 480 MeV at that time.
