12 GeV Upgrade
At the request of the Office of Nuclear Physics, Daniel Lehman, Director of the Office of Project Assessment in DOE's Office of Science, will convene a team of 22 experts plus 10 observers in an Independent Project Review of the 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade Project to be held at JLab on Nov. 27-29. The purpose of the review is to assess all aspects of the project in order to re-establish the DOE Performance Baseline resulting from a $16 million reduction in FY12 congressional appropriation.
The Hall C Short Orbit Spectrometer has been stripped of stairways, walkways and other parts, leaving only the shield house supported by the base frame. The raised concrete floor in the hall is almost completely removed, in anticipation of installation, next year, of the rails for the new Super High Momentum Spectrometer.
The FEL team is preparing for operations early in 2013 and has completed the bakeout of the injector in preparation for high-voltage conditioning next week. Work continued on the detailed design of the new gun with a load-lock for cathode replacement, and the first conceptual designs for a new booster were presented this week.
