No changes from last night 19 November 2015 As was the case last night, the cyclotron is delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 60 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4 while at ISAC 19Ne is being delivered to DRAGON for experiment S1560. This is all expected to continue into next week.
Quick update 18 November 2015 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 60 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. This is expected to continue into next week.
Development wrapping up 17 November 2015 Beam development activities are starting to wrap up. The plan is to run with ~100 µA in BL1A, 50–60 µA in BL2A, and ~95 µA in BL2C4 once operation resumes.
Development tomorrow; ISAC switch to winter mode planned 16 November 2015 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering ~100 µA to BL1A, 50 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. This is expected to continue until the start of tomorrow’s scheduled cyclotron beam development.
Current Events Michael K. Craddock (1936 – 2015) 16 November 2015 Dr. Michael K. Craddock, a University of British Columbia Professor Emeritus and TRIUMF Research Scientist, passed away on November 11, 2015 at St. John’s Hospice at UBC following a brief illness.
BL1A and 2C4 in operation; BL2A off overnight for target startup 13 November 2015 The cyclotron is running normally and delivering ~100 µA to BL1A and ~98 µA to BL2C4. BL2A was taken offline earlier today while the ISAC target station shielding was reconfigured for operation of the west target station and will remain off until (likely) tomorrow afternoon
Back in operation 12 November 2015 The cyclotron was ready for operation early this afternoon and is currently delivering ~95 µA to BL1A, 9 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4.
Linde repairs tomorrow 10 November 2015 The Cryogenics group continued to work on the Linde 1630 helium refrigerator today. The machine is still warming up and repairs will start tomorrow (Wednesday) morning.
36-hour maintenance underway (UPDATED) 09 November 2015 The cyclotron has been down for a scheduled 36-hour maintenance period since this morning. Startup is not expected before late Thursday or Friday due to a failure of the Linde 1630 helium refrigerator.
Awards & Honours Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics 09 November 2015 This prize is awarded jointly to the Daya Bay, Kamland, SNO, Super-K, and T2K/K2K collaborations “for the fundamental discovery of neutrino oscillations, revealing a new frontier beyond, and possibly far beyond, the standard model of particle physics.”
