12 GeV Upgrade
The last civil construction task for the 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade, accelerator tunnel air conditioning, is scheduled to be complete by the end of August. The chilled water and fire sprinkler piping has been pressure tested. The last remaining installation activity is the controls – sensors and wiring. Water balancing and commissioning are planned to start mid-August.
Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
The Joint Physics Analysis Center has performed a new analysis of high energy pion-nucleon scattering based on Regge exchanges. The scattering amplitudes used in the analysis satisfy analyticity constraints and the so-called finite-energy sum rules. This is an important first step toward the implementation of these constraints in a global fit of hadron scattering data.
Some of the activities that the Mechanical Engineering group has been working on are as follows:

Environment, Safety, Health & Quality
To help keep ourselves and our coworkers safe, it’s important to be good stewards of the golf carts. When you use a cart, pay attention to the cart and its condition. If you notice that the cart is not performing optimally, put in a Facilities Management Service Request to have it checked out. If you recognize or have a safety problem (pedals beginning to stick, windshield broken, etc.), tag it out and put in a service request. If you experience a serious issue, immediately call x7400 to arrange for a repair. The golf carts are a great resource for conducting lab business, and reporting problems with a cart early ensures that it will be available and work safely when someone needs it.
