Current Events Beam delivery update 05 April 2013 One of the cyclotron RF intermediate power amplifiers sparked over this afternoon, destroying a 480 V breaker and damaging components inside the amplifier cabinet…
Current Events Beam delivery update 29 October 2014 The cyclotron is currently delivering ~115 µA to BL1A, 50 µA to BL2A, and nA as needed to BL2C1 for PIF. This is expected to continue until ~20:00 at which point delivery to STF will resume.
Current Events Beam delivery update 17 October 2012 Right now, the cyclotron is delivering 40 µA to BL2A2 and ~45 µA to BL2C4…
Current Events Beam delivery update 11 December 2014 They cyclotron’s running fairly well, delivering close to 100 µA to BL2C4 for isotope production and protons as needed to BL1B for PIF. BL2A is off at least overnight as we have no RIB users at ISAC.
Current Events Beam delivery update 04 December 2012 Current conditions: Scheduled maintenance, to be followed by beam development 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 04 July 2013 The ISIS I1 (ion source #1) filament appears to be failing despite having been replaced on Tuesday and the subsequent effort to identify possible leaks in the source vacuum system. Ops has adjusted split ratios to give 90~95 µA to BL1A, 50 µA to BL2A, and ~60 µA to BL2C4 in order to limit the impact on any one user or group of users. The plan is to run like this overnight, if possible…
Current Events Beam delivery update 03 September 2013 Today is the last day of beam delivery in Schedule 124. BL1A was taken offline earlier today and the cyclotron is now being used for BL1B development while still delivering ~45 µA to BL2C4 for isotope production.
Current Events Beam delivery update 15 May 2014 We’re currently running with ~95 µA in BL1A, 50 µA in BL2A, and ~95 µA in BL2C4. BL2C4 will be defined off at some point tomorrow for an STF target change. Otherwise, we should run like this until Tuesday morning.
Current Events Beam delivery update 08 April 2013 Repairs to the cyclotron RF system in the wake of Friday's failure are expected to delay startup of the cyclotron RF to about April 19…
