Current Events Beam delivery update 20 September 2014 BL1A is the only beamline running right now; it’s taking ~105 µA and will likely do so through the weekend. BL2A is off due to target issues while BL2C is off until tomorrow morning’s proton therapy.
Awards & Honours NSERC Discovery Grant for Isotopes 19 September 2014 Iris Dillmann, a research scientist at TRIUMF, was awarded a five-year NSERC Individual Discovery Grant to support her research of neutron-rich exotic isotopes titled “Beta-delayed neutron measurements for nuclear astrophysics.”
Current Events September 19 ARIEL Snapshot 19 September 2014 EINJ completed and installed on-line. EACA cw RF measured to 7MV/m, limited by multipacting in couplers. RF conditioning completed to 20 kW. Tunnel installation mostly complete. VECC delegation, including Director, Dr. Dinesh Srivastava, visiting TRIUMF.
Current Events Beam delivery update 18 September 2014 Beam is currently off due to RF problems. The plan is to deliver ~105 µA to BL1A, 50 µA to BL2A, and 95 µA to BL2C4 overnight before inserting the pepper pot for proton therapy at 08:00 tomorrow morning.
Current Events Beam delivery update 16 September 2014 The cyclotron is running and delivering ~105 µA to BL1A and ~95 µA to BL2C4. BL2A is just coming on following today’s shielding block move and stable-beam tuning to the ISAC yield station.
Current Events ARIEL: All Cables Connected for E-linac! 16 September 2014 August 29th marked the final push for cable pulling efforts for ARIEL’s e-linac. Over 1,400 cables have been gathered, pulled, and connected from the e-hall roof and are ready to power and control the accelerator!
Current Events Beam delivery update: very little maintenance, if any, tomorrow [UPDATED] 15 September 2014 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and 90–95 µA to BL2C4. We expect to run like this until 06:00 tomorrow. Cyclotron operation may be interrupted briefly tomorrow morning for maintenance but at this point there is nothing planned. 
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.
