Operation resuming after mini-shutdown 29 September 2015 The cyclotron is running following last week’s mini-shutdown and beam tuning is underway with ~85 µA in BL1A, 45 µA in BL2A, and ~95 µA in BL2C4.
University Stories The Sounds of Science 28 September 2015 TRIUMF’s Ewan Hill recently presented a collaborative music project, disCERN, at Switzerland’s Montreux Jazz Festival that had dozens of patrons dancing in their seats as they experienced physics in an entirely new way.  
Mini-shutdown starts Monday 18 September 2015 The cyclotron is still delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 40 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4, while at ISAC 62Ga is being delivered to the polarizer for experiment S1332. Cyclotron operation is expected to continue in its present manner until Monday morning and RIB delivery will switch to GRIFFIN for experiment S1518 tomorrow.
Workshops & Conferences Exploring Science Through Labyrhythyms 18 September 2015 During a recent seminar, David Harris dove into the motivation behind his ‘art meets science’ research program at TRIUMF and sampled his sound art creations.
Beam delivery update 17 September 2015 The cyclotron is presently delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 40 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. We don’t expect any significant changes to operation before the start of the mini-shutdown on Monday.
No changes expected before Monday 15 September 2015 The cyclotron is delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 40 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. By and large, this is expected to continue until the start of the mini-shutdown on Monday.
No maintenance tomorrow 14 September 2015 The cyclotron is currently delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 35 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. There is no maintenance planned for tomorrow.
Weekend update 11 September 2015 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 30 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. We expect to run like this until the start of maintenance (if required) Tuesday morning.
Yield measurements in progress 10 September 2015 The cyclotron’s delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 30 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. The BL2A current may be stepped up to 40 µA overnight but otherwise we expect to run like this until the start of maintenance (if required) Tuesday.
ISAC target startup underway 09 September 2015 The cyclotron’s running normally and delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 15 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. The BL2A current was up to 20 µA last night but had to be reduced due to target offgassing; the plan is to begin stepping the 2A current back up as the vacuum recovers.
