JSA Offers Sabbatical and Research Leave Support at Jefferson Lab
The Electrical Engineering Systems department continues to support the CEBAF spring run, as well as other lab initiatives. The RF group continues to work on system performance issues, reducing the trip rate and maintaining the gradient required to accelerate the electron beam to full 12 GeV energy. The group has also been installing and testing equipment for the Linac Coherent Light Source-II project to support cryomodule testing. The DC Power group is maintaining good system performance, as well as working upgrade projects that will sustain machine operations in the fall.
The Safety Systems Group is in the process of certifying Hall C, the first time that hall has been in "beam permit" (albeit as a test) since the 6 GeV era. The I&C group is active in getting the Hall C beamline and dump electronics ready and installed for beam. The EES support group has been working in Hall B helping with the installation of the Torus magnet and prep for the Solenoid magnet arrival and also working in the Test Lab for LCLS-II, installing cable tray and RF components. Efforts towards the Upgrade Injector Test Facility project have also ramped up in the past few weeks. Racks, electronics and cables have started to be installed for all the major areas, and the system is starting to take shape.

Thank You for Listening
Some sidewalks and other areas are being re-opened, while others remain closed. Please still respect those closed areas, as there is ongoing work or preparation for work in the near future. The contractors are working as best as possible to have these pathways available, but they still must complete their work safely as well. The contractors are aware of the planned Open House, and they are trying to complete as much as possible by then.
Until all the work is completed, another "Thanks" is extended for respecting the barricades and barrier tapes.
Jefferson Lab to hold Open House on April 30!
