12 GeV Upgrade
12 GeV installation plans for the 2011 six-month accelerator shutdown (mid-May through mid-November) are being finalized and incorporated into the lab-wide integrated schedule. Weekly cross-divisional meetings are being held to identify and resolve potential conflicts with work or shared resources. Hall D equipment installation planning continues as the scheduled ready-for-equipment (RFE) date of Nov. 30 approaches.
To coordinate 12 GeV Project needs, the JLab Facilities Management and Logistics group has developed an online database for related space and storage requests, including offsite rentals. Coordination of material handling and transportation equipment continues in order to appropriately support the safe completion of installation activities. The 12 GeV team has developed a project work order system that is integrated with the existing Facilities work request system.

Last week was a good week. The accelerator delivered beam mainly to Halls A and B. Hall C did not take much beam due to its target work. One shift was spent for beam studies to calibrate the vertical Wien and the solenoid spin rotators. A couple of magnets caused about two hours of downtime. On Monday, the Wien angle was changed from 29 degrees to 5 degrees at Hall A’s request.
The FEL team chased down the source of an aggravating drift of radiofrequency in the injector to a sensor diode in an rf control module. A new module seems to be stable. With that in place, the team was able to continue exploration of sensitivity measurements for lasing at 700 nanometers.

Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery
Don't remember the last time you changed the battery? The Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery campaign (sponsored by the International Association of Fire Chiefs, Energizer ™, and a network of 6,200 fire departments) encourages Americans to change the batteries in their smoke alarms when they spring forward or fall back for Daylight Saving Time. Take the opportunity to reset your smoke alarms with fresh batteries this weekend.
