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.
Current Events Beam delivery update 28 August 2014 The cyclotron is currently delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4 for isotope production at STF. With the exception of an STF target change at some point, this is expected to continue through the upcoming long weekend.
Current Events Beam delivery update: beam development completed 26 August 2014 Today’s beam development was finished shortly before 20:00 and full operation is being restored. The plan is to deliver ~110 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4 as conditions allow.
Current Events Beam delivery update: Maintenance during beam development tomorrow 25 August 2014 The cyclotron’s running normally, delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4, while at ISAC 34Al is being delivered to TITAN for experiment S1240. These are both scheduled to continue until the start of tomorrow’s beam development shift at 08:30. There is no plan to interrupt operation for Wednesday’s “maintenance if required”.
Current Events August 22 ARIEL Snapshot 22 August 2014 Successful HPRF test to 150kW-rated load for second klystron and power supply. EACA on the beamline, connections on-going.
Current Events Beam delivery update 21 August 2014 The cyclotron is running normally, delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~98 µA to BL2C4. At ISAC, the new UCx target in TM4 saw its first protons last night. Both cyclotron operation and RIB delivery are scheduled to continue through the weekend.
