General updates

  • Beam was fairly good over the holiday weekend.
    • Moller measurement on Sat morning. Summary
    • After the injector work on Monday owl, the beam was excellent.
  • Beam turned off to fix IL20 with beam off for DAY shift.
    • During downtime, PNMR was made to work [1] and laser alignment checks done [2].
    • Andy Kenyon implemented a supplemental nitrogen for the cooling jets. Still using the nitrogen from the cryogenics, but if it drops too low the supplemental will kick in. [3]
  • Beam restore may take a while given Hot spots

Current Run Plan

  • Take NMR every 5-6 hours
  • Always take 120Hz of EDTM
  • Hall B will do Moller when beam back. They will do measurement with present IHWP and then flip IHWP.
  • Moller spin dance Wed at 10-2.
  • DOE tour on Thursday at 11 for 15 minutes. Need to go to restricted access. Radcon to start survey at 10am.

  • After beam comes back we have two options:

1.If the target polarization is good

2.If the target polarization needs time to increase

  • We will do the cross section study with 3He reference cell
    • See Run Plan
    • This is about 5 hours of 30uA beam
    • Will need to cycle magnets to go back to HMS/SHMS at -3.5/-3.4 GeV/c.
  • If the target polarization still needs time to increase
    • we will do part of the reference cell empty,N2 and H2 running for HMS/SHMS at -3.5/-3.4 GeV/c.
    • See RUn plan
    • This is about 6 hours of 30uA beam
  • Otherwise more data with the polarized target. Run plan for high momentum 30 deg polarized helium

Special Requests

Notices in Effect for Shift Crew

  • Policy for CANS-related hall status change: Make a logbook entry when the hall goes in, or comes out of laser-controlled access.
  • Magnet policies
    • HMS Q1 must be ramped down in 50A steps in all cases
    • Do not ramp HMS Q2 to zero, only go to 10A and then switch off power.
  • Inform the RC of any access that the Target Team requires. The RC will coordinate with RadCon to make everything run smoothly.
  • The operators have been somewhat careful with our beam orbit locks. Please make sure that the orbit locks are enabled and the beam does not drift from its nominal position.
  • Ramp rate lock instructions are here and added to checklist[4]
  • Temporary Laser instructions can be found here [5]

Planned Accelerator Configuration Changes
