Current Events September 5 ARIEL Snapshot 05 September 2014 CNSC has given approval for commissioning the e-linac up to EHDT. Beam dump insert is finished fabrication. Lower lead shield steel shell and welded cooling line assembly finished and shipped to the lead foundry for casting. Remote Handling procedure for installation of beam dump helicoflex seal and marmon clamp has been tested.
Current Events Beam delivery update 04 September 2014 The cyclotron is running much as it was last night, delivering nA to BL1B, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. Operation is scheduled to carry on like this into the weekend.
Current Events Alfredo Poves: From Jules Verne to TRIUMF 04 September 2014 Get to know Alfredo Poves during his sabbatical at TRIUMF. Alfredo joins us until the end of October and is here to inspire collaboration and continue research on nuclear structure. He has a keen interest in the very exotic decay of nuclei emitting two electrons and no neutrinos.
Current Events Beam delivery update 03 September 2014 The cyclotron’s running normally, delivering nA as needed to BL1B for PIF, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. We expect to run like this until 06:00 tomorrow morning, at which point BL2A will again be defined off to allow the experimenters to access the separator room to recover their target foil.
Current Events Minister Holder Visits TRIUMF 03 September 2014 On August 25, the Honourable Ed Holder visited TRIUMF to met with members of the leadership team, including Director Jonathan Bagger, as well as researchers, engineers, and technicians during a tour of ARIEL. From STEM education to "Made in Canada" technolgy, the Minister had a peek into TRIUMF's full program.
Current Events Beam delivery update: Maintenance tomorrow 02 September 2014 The cyclotron is currently delivering nA as needed to BL1B for PIF, 9.8 µA to BL2A for RIB production, and ~95 µA to BL2C4 for isotope production at STF. This is expected to continue until ~06:00 tomorrow, at which point BL2A will be defined off for access to the mass separator room and a target module move. BL1A and BL2C4 will continue to run until ~08:30.
Awards & Honours Theory PhD Student Wins Poster Session 02 September 2014 Mirko Miorelli, a PhD student at UBC and member of the Theory Group at TRIUMF, won the poster competition at the 2014 Gordon Research Conference on Photonuclear Reactions: from Quarks to Nuclei for his poster "Electric Dipole Polarizability from Coupled-Cluster Theory." Congratulations, Mirko!
Current Events Beam delivery update 31 August 2014 The cyclotron is delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4, while at ISAC 31Na is being delivered to Osaka experiment S1391. Where we have a problem is with the ISAC-I RFQ.
Current Events Beam delivery update (SPECIAL LONG WEEKEND EDITION) 29 August 2014 The cyclotron is running normally, delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. Other than the possibility of an STF target change at some point (which would see BL2C4 defined off and might cause brief disruptions on the other beamlines), this is expected to continue through the weekend.
Current Events August 29 ARIEL Snapshot 29 August 2014 Target dates for September milestones set. Steady progress by Remote Handling team on tuning dump components, incl. beam dump insert and Pb shield.
