12 GeV Upgrade
Several Super High Momentum Spectrometer user scientists are busy testing and improving the performance of the detectors. The trigger hodoscope detectors, drift chambers and calorimeter are all undergoing checkout. The Quadrupole 2 magnet, still in France, has passed all of its scheduled leak and pressure tests. Assembly of its shipping crate and authorizations from local French authorities for moving from the factory to the seaport are now underway. Hall C is prepared to receive and install Q2 as soon as it arrives. A leak was found in the helium system of the dipole magnet in France during final factory testing. A full diagnosis and repair plan are in development; this will likely delay shipment to Jefferson Lab.
