Current Events Mini-shutdown update 09 October 2014 We’re about half-way through the scheduled mini-shutdown. Injection and startup are scheduled for Tuesday with beam delivery to resume Wednesday.
Current Events E-Linac Produces First Beam 07 October 2014 TRIUMF’s newly constructed e-linac produced its first particle beam at an initial energy of 23 MeV. The cutting-edge accelerator technology was designed and built in cooperation with institutions and industry across the country.
Current Events October 3 ARIEL Snapshot 03 October 2014 e-Linac accelerates beam to 23 MeV!
Current Events Beam delivery update 01 October 2014 The cyclotron is delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 50 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. This is expected to continue at least overnight and possibly through the weekend.
Current Events September 30 ARIEL Snapshot 30 September 2014 ARIEL e-linac accelerates electron beam to 20 MeV!
Current Events ARIEL E-linac Meets Mega-Volt Milestones! 30 September 2014 The campaign to demonstrate 10 MV/m accelerating gradient in the SRF cavities of the e-linac injector and accelerator cryomodules achieved two critically important milestones, each meeting or exceeding design specification!
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.
