Current Events Beam delivery update: ISAC maintenance tomorrow 29 September 2014 The cyclotron is currently delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 5 µA to BL2A (for end-of-target target scans), and ~95 µA to BL2C4. BL2A is expected to go off at some point this evening.
Awards & Honours Member University Lands Prestigious Chair 26 September 2014 The Honourable Ed Holder, Minister of State for Science and Technology, announced Dr. Gilles Gerbier as the new Canada Excellence Research Chair in particle astrophysics at Queen’s University, a TRIUMF member institution.
Current Events September 26 ARIEL Snapshot 26 September 2014  EINJ and EACA cavities achieved 12 MV/m and 10 MV/m cw gradient respectively, performance limited by coupler conditioning.
Current Events ARIEL: Beam Line Installed in Tunnel 24 September 2014 With astonishing speed, the E-Linac beam line was installed in the ARIEL tunnel. A key synergy between three offices on site, the Design Office, the Machine Shop, and the Beam Lines Group, resulted in a precise, accurate, and speedy installation.
Current Events Ambassador Rafael Barak Visits TRIUMF 22 September 2014 His Excellency Rafael Barak, Israel’s Ambassador to Canada, visited TRIUMF to foster cooperation and derive benefit from the rich history of peaceful collaboration between Israel and TRIUMF.
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.
