12 GeV Upgrade
As the 12 GeV upgrade project nears the commissioning phase for Halls B and C, the last of the scheduled modules of the Accelerator Readiness Review (ARR) is scheduled for Jan. 9 and 10. The ARR committee is charged with determining if Jefferson Lab is prepared to deliver beam for the commissioning and operation of Experimental End Stations (Halls) B and C, and the experimental equipment associated with the 12 GeV Upgrade Project, in a safe and efficient manner. To this end, both halls are continuing with the installation of the remaining magnets, detectors, beamline components and associated infrastructure/services.
In Hall B, the Central Time of Flight has been placed on the mock-up support stand, and installation is underway. Hall B also continues working the various detectors’ gas delivery systems and remaining utilities. Hall C has installed the beamline supports and continues with hookup of the Q3 and dipole magnets.

A new method for computing hadronic matrix elements from lattice QCD has been introduced, which has the potential to improve systematic errors on the ground state matrix elements from excited state contamination. The method may therefore offer a solution to a practical problem that has plagued lattice QCD calculations of hadronic matrix elements for some time. As a benchmark calculation, the nucleon axial charge has been computed at a single lattice spacing with a pion mass of 310 MeV.
