Current Events Beam delivery update: Weekend edition 12 September 2014 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and nA as needed to BL2C1 for PIF. PIF is scheduled to wrap up this evening, at which point STF operation on BL2C4 will resume; otherwise, we expect to run like this through the weekend.
Current Events September 12 ARIEL Snapshot 12 September 2014 EACA cooled to 2K, RF tests in progress. EINJ hermetic unit complete after reprocessing/cleaning and transported to e-hall. Two klystrons and HVPS operational. Beam dump installation imminent.  
Current Events Beam delivery update 11 September 2014 The cyclotron’s delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. This is expected to continue overnight. 
Current Events Beam delivery update 10 September 2014 The cyclotron is currently running with ~20 µA in BL1A; the plan for the evening is to bring BL1A up to full current, then to bring BL2C4 back online. BL2A will remain off until tomorrow morning.
Current Events Beam delivery update: Recovery and the next ~48 hours 09 September 2014 After last night’s spontaneous start of a cryopanel defrost, the Cryogenics group came in to defrost and restart the tank cryogenics system overnight. It’s still not clear when beam might be injected – it could be anywhere between this evening and tomorrow morning. Operation over the next couple of days is still somewhat uncertain.
Current Events Beam delivery update [UPDATED] 08 September 2014 The cyclotron is still delivering nA as needed to BL1B, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4 for isotope production. PIF operation is scheduled to end tonight, but BL2A and 2C4 will continue to operate until the start of maintenance at 06:00 Wednesday.
Current Events Beam delivery update: Weekend edition [UPDATED] 05 September 2014 The cyclotron is delivering 9.8 µA to BL2A and ~95 µA to BL2C4, while BL1B has finished operation for the evening. PIF will resume tomorrow morning. Otherwise, we’ll continue like this through the weekend.
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.
