12 GeV UpgradeThe Office of Science Energy Systems Acquisition Advisory Board (ESAAB) met on Sept. 4 to review the Baseline Change Proposal for the 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade Project. The ESAAB representatives recommended approval, and the formal approval document was signed by the Acquisition Executive. This action established a new baseline for the project with a completion date of September 2017.
Center for Theoretical and Computational PhysicsA first principle calculation of the deuteron and its properties would be a theoretical milestone on the path toward calculating quantities of importance in low-energy nuclear physics from quantum chromodynamics (QCD). New work presents the necessary formalism and methodology to determine two-nucleon scattering parameters from lattice QCD. In particular, it demonstrates that the central and tensor nuclear forces present in the 3S1-3D1 two-nucleon channel, as well as the deuteron binding energy, can be reliably extracted from such calculations.
EngineeringThe Metrology group (alignment/magnet measurement) continues to support the installation of components for the 12 GeV machine. Over the last week or so, the group has:

AnnouncementsUnited Way Campaign Kicks Off Oct. 2
The United Way annual fundraising campaign at Jefferson Lab will kick off on Wednesday, Oct. 2, with the lab’s United Way Picnic and Raffle. The lab's goal for this month-long appeal is 100 percent participation by staff. A pledge or donation through the United Way is a great way to give back to our community, to help make our community a better place and to say "thank you" for the support this region has given to the lab over the years. You can download a United Way pledge form online, and hard copies will be available beginning on Oct. 1 at the reception desks at the Support Service Center and CEBAF Center. They may also be picked up at the United Way Raffle ticket sales table in the CEBAF Center lobby daily during lunch time starting on Oct. 2. Send or deliver completed forms to Joshua Cameron in CEBAF Center, Room B214, Mail Stop 12-B, by Friday, Nov. 1. Questions may be directed to Joshua Cameron, x7628.
Come Hungry to the United Way Picnic on Oct. 2
Jefferson Lab's United Way campaign will get underway with the traditional United Way Picnic and Raffle, 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m., on Tuesday, Oct. 2 in CEBAF Center. All members of the lab community are invited to participate. All picnic food and beverage items will be $1 each; the menu includes hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers, assorted chips, assorted canned soda and bottled water. Additional food and beverage items will be available for purchase in the cafeteria. Raffle ticket sales for three iPad minis will begin at that time and will run through the end of lunch time on Oct. 29. Tickets will be available for $1 each and may be purchased at the table in the CEBAF Center lobby, from 12–1 p.m. on workdays. The winning ticket for each iPad mini will be drawn during the Jefferson Lab Activities Group Tailgate picnic scheduled for Oct. 29. Winners need not be present to win and will have until 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, to claim their prize. One iPad win per person. All money collected from the picnic and the raffle will go to the United Way. More information about the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula is available online.
2014 Calendar Preview
Bill Waide, Forms & Supply, will be on site Friday, Oct. 4, in the CEBAF Center lobby 10 a.m.-noon with information on 2014 calendars. Stop by to see catalogs and ask questions. Bill can provide information on product numbers available through the Jefferson Lab E-commerce system and information on special order calendar items not currently available on the site. For more information, contact Barbara Rice, x7238.
Online Auction Site Lets You Bid on Excessed JLab Property
The Jefferson Lab Property section wants to let the lab community and the public know about the online auction service it is using to sell excess lab property. Surplus property items are posted online. Anyone can bid on the items, once they have registered on the site. The only exception is that the person who excessed a specific property item cannot bid on that item.
