BL1A offline; BL2A development underway 07 October 2015 The cyclotron is presently delivering 5 µA to BL2A and nA as needed to BL2C1 for PIF. The BL2A current was stepped up to 50 µA last night without incident but has been reduced for testing of the new raster magnets in BL2A3.
Quick update 06 October 2015 Today’s ISIS backplate change was completed mid-afternoon and cyclotron beam development has been underway since ~16:30. That is expected to continue until later this evening, at which point regular operation will resume.
Maintenance/beam development tomorrow 05 October 2015 The cyclotron is currently delivering 50 µA to BL2A and ~95 µA to BL2C4; BL1A remains off pending a repair to the T2 protect monitor.
BL1A down for the weekend 02 October 2015 The cyclotron is presently delivering 50 µA to BL2A as the sole user of the cyclotron; that will continue over the weekend, being interrupted each morning for proton therapy.
Proton therapy starts tomorrow 01 October 2015 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering ~98 µA to BL1A, 50 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. Setup for proton therapy on BL2C1 was carried out earlier today and we expect to run like this until the start of PT tomorrow morning.
From the Director Introducing TRIUMF’s First Deputy Director 30 September 2015 Director Dr. Jonathan Bagger implemented several changes to TRIUMF’s management structure, including naming Dr. Reiner Kruecken, former Head of the Science Division, as TRIUMF’s new - and first ever - Deputy Director. In this interview, we learn more about Reiner and his pth to Deputy Director.

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.
