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.
Current Events Global Physics Photowalk 2015 at TRIUMF 09 September 2015 Back by popular demand, eight of the world’s leading particle physics laboratories are joining together to host the Global Physics Photowalk on September 25-26, 2015.
Maintenance complete; TM2 ready for beam 08 September 2015 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering ~110 µA to BL1A and ~95 µA to BL2C4. BL2A is expected to come online at some point this evening.
BL1A/2A/2C4 in operation; maintenance Tuesday 04 September 2015 Everything has run relatively well since a series of power bumps earlier this afternoon and the cyclotron is now delivering ~120 µA to BL1A, 9.8 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. This is expected to continue until the start of maintenance at 08:30 Tuesday.
Cyclotron off due to beamstop failure 03 September 2015 The cyclotron is currently down due to problems with a safety-critical beamstop in the ISIS beamline. It appears that the problem has been identified but the device will still have to be repaired, tested, and recommissioned before operation can resume.
BL1A operation to resume Friday 02 September 2015 The cyclotron is running normally, delivering 9.8 µA to BL2A, ~95 µA to BL2C4, and protons as needed to BL1B. BL1A operation will resume Friday.
Development finished; regular operation resuming 01 September 2015 Cyclotron operation resumed last night and today was spent on beam development as scheduled. Ops is in the process of setting up for operation with BL1B, BL2A, and BL2C4.
Beam delivery update: Operation slowly resuming; development tomorrow 31 August 2015 The cyclotron vacuum has been restored and the RF is currently being brought back up to operating voltage. The plan is to deliver beam as it’s available to BL1A and BL2C4 overnight. Cyclotron beam development will begin at 08:30 tomorrow.
