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.”
36-hour maintenance starting tomorrow 08 November 2015 There is a 36-hour maintenance period scheduled to start at 08:30 Monday.
Awards & Honours Winning Photographs Revealed 04 November 2015 Congratulations to the Vancouver photographers for their winning photos in TRIUMF’s photo competition, part of the Global Physics Photowalk 2015.
Experiment switchover at ISAC tonight 03 November 2015 The cyclotron is currently delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 60 µA to BL2A, and nA as needed to BL2C1. The BL2A current will probably be reduced to 35 µA later this evening while BL2C will continue to switch between PIF and STF for the next few shifts.
Experimental Result Computing the Heart of Matter 03 November 2015 An international team of theoretical physicists has succeeded for the first time in calculating important properties of the Calcium-48 nucleus, using America's largest supercomputer.
Current Events The Race to Space 03 November 2015 Eight university-student teams in the Canadian Satellite Design Competition return to TRIUMF to test their satellite components in a realistic simulated space setting.
