With that out of the way: Yes, we are in the process of delivering beam to the ISAC polarizer for experiment S1296. Setup with 40Ar from the OLIS microwave source is underway; the plan is to switch to 139La once that is complete. The experiment will take beam during days and evenings for the remainder of the week.

Otherwise, it’s still shutdown.
