Beam delivery update: Maintenance underway 09 June 2015 The cyclotron has been off since 07:00 this morning for a scheduled defrost of the cyclotron cryogenics system and other maintenance jobs. Full operation will resume once the RF system is restarted some time tomorrow.
Experimental Result IRIS Observes Long-Sought Li-11 Resonance 09 June 2015 Exploiting the world-leading intensity of ISAC’s Lithium-11 beams, the IRIS experiment observes soft dipole resonance and publishes first results in Physical Review Letters.
Beam delivery update: Maintenance starting 07:00 tomorrow 08 June 2015 The cyclotron is delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. At ISAC, 32Na is being delivered to GRIFFIN for experiment S1507. Beam will go off at 07:00 Tuesday for maintenance and will remain off until Wednesday.
University Stories Visitor enhances international collaborations 08 June 2015 Physicist Elizabeth Padilla-Rodal hopes to strengthen the collaborative environment in low energy nuclear physics research between TRIUMF and her home institution in Mexico.
Beam delivery update: Weekend edition 05 June 2015 The cyclotron is currently delivering ~110 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. At ISAC, the target bias voltage supply on the west target station was replaced this morning and RIB restored this afternoon.
