  • Elevated beam line decommissioned upstream of M901 quad and terminated in roughing valve.
  • COO/ESAD/RSAD prepared; committee response in progress.


  • Gun operating at 180kV w/o Field Emission following rebuild, HV conditioning, and Kr processing (Many thanks to all involved!!)
  • Many improvements and modifications made to prep chamber. New pucks prepared as well.
  • HV tests with a GaAs puck (#8) in the gun (8/3) [Carlos]
  • Gun HVPS locked out , reconnect gun valve, charge NF3, degas heater/puck, get UITF laser on (8/4)
  • Make photocathode (8/5) [Joe/Max]
  • Align laser to photocathode, using retro and QE (8/5) [Shukui]
  • Gun rebuild wiki
  • Racks and Mott crate staged for later experiments

Old insulator (punctured) & Old puck manipulator/schneedle for reference; both replaced.

DC Power:

  • Trims:
    1. Trim magnets near gun re-cabled.
    2. Wastewater beam line trims cabled up.
    3. Trim magnets near FC#3: 401H/V (completed) & 501H/V correctors + 501 quad
  • Former PEPPo solenoid repaired, mapped, and installed.
  • Solenoid PS being installed. Supply placed, cables pulled, cabled, and LCW hooked up.
  • MHB magnet re-designation to MLH to avoid confusion: Chris Gould making nomenclature changes / Gary Croke & Michele Joyce making controls changes / Eric Forman to update Quick Reference Drawing / Shaun to take care of song sheets
  • Changes made in UED workspace for names and field maps; ready to merge soon. (Thanks Gary/Michele!)
  • Replacement of cards and utility chassis' acquired for CEBAF under way...

Instrumentation and Controls:

Viewer system status [IC; Norris / McCaughan]

    1. Recable 2 viewers in keV whose channels & hardware were appropriated for HDice (done)
    2. Reconnect IYGM401 (formerly ITV, now YAG)
    3. Drag cable and connect IYGM603 and IYGM603 (appropriated from HDice line, swapped ITV > YAG).
    4. Brian Freeman available for adViewer work for video camera for ITVM604A? Dome focusing still required...

Wire Scanners [Delacruz / Poelker]

  • IHAM703 Status (Scanner swapped out)

Chopper Controls (Windham/Lu)
