CEBAF Schedule Notice: Message from Hugh Montgomery

CEBAF Schedule Notice: Message from Hugh Montgomery

Dear Colleagues,

Following discussions with Accelerator and Experimental Physics division leadership, and with information discussed at the recent Shutdown Oversight Board 2015 meetings, we have decided that the CEBAF accelerator operations will start on November 9, 2015.  The five weeks of beam operations  before the Winter break will be devoted to establishing a fully operational 12 GeV CEBAF; measuring beam properties and establishing physics quality beams at design energy.

With input from 12 GeV Project, the Chairs of the Scheduling Committee are developing a strawman schedule including experiments for the 2016 “Spring” run.

Before it is finalized, potential negative impacts of the strawman will be scrutinized.
