Research Assistantship Deadline Nears
The FEL team made good progress in testing the puck transfer mechanism for the new FEL gun. The puck engagement prototype was assembled in Lab 3A. Testing under vacuum included the internal components for grabbing the puck via a pin mechanism, the manipulator, and the step motor for the linear translation stage that moves the puck cradle up and down. The puck was successfully seated into the retainer ring, simulating in this way the nominal operation position inside the ball electrode of the electron gun. Further functionality tests will be performed next week, including tests of the reproducibility of successfully seating the puck into the retainer ring.

Also, make sure to only wear your dosimeter while at work. Never take your dosimeter home or offsite. Remember your proper dosimetry storage location (badge rack) for your dosimeter. When you pick up the dosimeter, always read the label to ensure your name is the one on the label, as the location of your dosimeter in the rack can change. If you find any discrepancies in your rack location or would like to move your dosimeter to a different storage location, please notify Becky Mosbrucker, x7236.
