Accelerator Status

  • Sep 05/06 Swing/Owl (yesterday/today):
    • 1L25 IOC Reset, Dropped Zone (18:10 - 21:37) [1]
    • 2L26 cavity issues (22:39 - 00:40) [2]
    • Hall C arc magnets box supply tripped off (23:35 - 23:53) [3]
  • Sep 06 Day (today):
    • 5th pass vertical separator tripped off (07:00 - 08:43) [4]
    • Hall C arc dipole BSY3C faulted off (10:25 - 10:59) [5]
    • RF Cavity 1L10-5 filament volts low (13:45 - 13:59) [6]
    • Summary of Beam Current during Day:

General Updates

  • Sep 05/06 Swing/Owl (yesterday/today):
    • At 22:03, MCC attempts to send tune beam to Hall C after long down (1L25), and Harp scans are done at 22:15.
    • Shortly after Hall C receives 5 uA for scraping checks, 2L26 goes down (22:39 - 00:40) [7]
    • d2n production data-taking resumed at 01:13 (IHWP = OUT) until Hall C requested IHWP = IN at 07:00 [8]
  • Sep 06 Day (today):
    • d2n production data-taking at IHWP=IN has commenced at 8:51, a few minutes after 5th pass vertical separator trip was resolved. We will stay at the IHWP = IN configuration for ~8 hrs of "beam-on-target"(please use the ABUs from the BTA Accounting as guidance indetermining how many effective hours of beam were taken at the IHWP = IN/OUT configuration.)
    • NOTE: Mingyu Chen has updated the pNMR measurement procedure in the TO training slides. This is in response the the failure of the pNMR fitting program over the past few shifts. It was requested that this be brought up in the next RC meeting (tomorrow, Sep 07). [9]

Run Plan

  • Contnue to collect d2n Pol He3 data for the next few days (until notified by d2n spokespeople that sufficient data has been collected)
    • We are currently in IHWP = IN configuration as of 07:00 and will continue to take ~8 hrs of "beam-on-target" data at said configuration.

Recent NMR Polarization Measurements

  • Sep 05/06 (Swing/Owl):
    • NMR @ 18:15 | 42.1 % [10]
    • NMR @ 23:08 | 44.2 % [11]
    • NMR @ 04:27 | 43.4 % [12]
  • Sep 06 (Day):
    • NMR @ 10:50 | 43.0 % [13]
    • NMR @ 16:00 | 41.3 % [14]
    • pNMR @ 16:00 | 67.6 % [15]

Recent IHWP Changes

  • Sep 03 (Swing, as of 19:58) | IHWP = IN
  • Sep 04 (Owl, as of 04:00) | IHWP = OUT [16]
  • Sep 04 (Day, as of 12:01) | IHWP = IN [17]
  • Sep 05 (Day, as of 14:55) | IHWP = OUT [18]
  • Sep 06 (Owl, as of 07:00) | IHWP = IN [19]

General Reminders for Running

  • New beam positions have been verified and established to be (0,0) mm for all glass cells. Only need to check beam is at (0,0) and verify no scraping on the glass cells.
  • Make sure the raster size is correct (4--4.5mm)
  • Monitor beam parameters/configuration very often and post an entry like this at the beginning of your shift and when run conditions have changed
  • Running on cell targets: raster always ON (4--4.5mm, size will be determined by the scraping checks), orbit locks ON, current ramp rate 1 muA/sec
  • Always take 120Hz of EDTM
  • Fill the BTA with realistic numbers. If the desired beam current is not delivered prorate your ABUs!
  • Change the IHWP at least every 8 hours when running on glass cells. Call Hall A in advance to request. If there are any issues, call the RC
  • Note that the autoload of IHWP status in the Start-Run GUI doesn't work anymore so please double check IHWP setting before you accept the GUI value.

Notices in Effect for Shift Crew

  • Follow all COVID rules and regulations as well as remind each other. Additional food guild lines:
    • All food are removed from the round table. Fruit are now store in the fridge, and individually packaged snacks are store on the shelf below the coffee machine.
    • No food near the SL and TO control station. If you would like to eat something, please use the empty round table (used to store food in the past), that is now empty and sanitized.
    • New coffee guide line: it is much preferred if you can bring you mug for the coffee. During the shift if one need to drink coffee near the control station, then the coffee mug must have a lid or have some kind of cover.
  • Beam positions: [20]
  • Policy for CANS-related hall status change: Make a logbook entry when the hall goes in, or comes out of laser-controlled access.
  • Inform the RC of any access that the Target Team requires. The RC will coordinate with RadCon to make everything run smoothly.
  • 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[21]
  • An new reference Cell refill procedure: New procedure
  • Magnet policies
    • Spectrometer GUI (go_magnets) should always be visible on Shift Leader computer, hcdesk3
    • Slow ramping procedure of the SHMS, go small steps to the MOL, an great example (1 hour 30 min process)
    • 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.
    • New updates to the magnet momentum ramping procedure: https://hallcweb.jlab.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_operate_and_monitor_the_Spectrometer_Magnets
    • If any of the Spectrometers magnets trip, take a screenshot of the PSU window and check the hall for smoke or water with the camera before resetting the interlock and post it to hclog
  • When rotating the spectrometer, use HCCAM01 to keep an eye on the SOLID Cherenkov test stand when rotating SHMS (in addition to watching the live angle-cam image, etc). The updated rotation instruction can be found: https://hallcweb.jlab.org/wiki/index.php/Spectrometer_Rotation#NOTICES_IN_EFFECT
  • New SHMS matrix element

Planned Accelerator Configuration Changes

  • Hall C to 1 pass on September 17/18, Thursday/Friday
