Front Ends: At the end of August, 25% of the front ends (FEs) had been installed. Front ends for the bending-magnet beamlines in Sectors 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 12, 13, and 19 and the insertion-device beamline in Sector 1 had all been installed and vacuum integrated into the storage ring, and 1-BM and 1-ID FEs had been commissioned.
During the September shutdown of machine operations, the FEs for 3-ID and 13-BM were vacuum integrated and tested.
Components for the 2-ID and 3-ID FEs are now being aligned. These two FEs will also be ready for commissioning during the next operations period designated for beamline commissioning. Various front-end components for the 5-ID and 33-BM beamlines are also in place. By the end of calendar year 1995, 18 FEs (out of 40 total) are expected to be fully installed in the storage-ring tunnel.
Beamline Components: At the end of August, the following experimental enclosures were nearly complete (including the Personnel Safety Systems): 1-BM-A, 1-BM-B, 1-ID-A, 1-ID-B, and 1-ID-C. The radiation shielding was verified at low storage-ring currents for stations 1-BM-A and B with bending-magnet radiation and for insertion-device stations 1-ID-A and B with undulator radiation.
Planned work for the September shutdown also included painting and installation of utilities for stations 2-BM-A, 2-ID-A, 3-ID-A and B, and 12-ID-A.
