Current Status

  • Q2=5.5, x=0.6 (pi+) kinematic setting-38 in progress

Current Run Plan

  • Finish kinematic group-38
  • Once done with kinematic group 38, move to the kinematic groups 39 and 40 (updated recently).

Notices in Effect for Shift Crew

  • Monitor SHMS 3/4 rates - maximum rate 500 kHz.
  • HMS polarity cannot be changed remotely - requires hall access. (Note: no polarity changes need for CSV).
  • When setting HMS Q1, always reduce current in steps of 50 A or less.

Future plan

  • CSV will be over around 3:30 PM on Sunday. In preparation for installation on Monday, we will ramp down all the HMS and SHMS magnets, rotate the HMS to about 40 degrees, rotate the SHMS to about 20 degrees. The target expert (David Meekins) will come in to warm up the target in the afternoon. Radcon and MCC have been informed to support the access.
  • Detector and beam pipe installation work will take place starting Sunday swing through at least Tuesday day shift.
  • MCC informed us that because of the required changes in the configuration, they would like to do the pass change (3 pass) after the RF recovery on Wednesday.


  • Shifts starting from Sunday (March 17th) swing shift through at least Tuesday (March 18th) day shifts are canceled. Shift takers on Tuesday Swing shift are on standby and should check e-mail prior to coming to the counting-house. More shifts are likely to be canceled.
