To anyone interested,
really a tech-talk topic, but I can’t resist the opportunity to brag a
little. Starting Friday evening with 930 Mev beam at the end of the superconducting
linac, the SNS team managed this weekend to bring that beam to the linac
injection dump, then inject a few turns into the Ring and circulate those turns
for a thousand orbits (!!) and then extract about ten turns into the extraction
dump with a clear signal on a beam current monitor there. Suddenly the goal of
beam on target in May seems achievable.
to say, the control system and EPICS – and our EPICS collaborators around
the world – played a proud role in this accomplishment.
ask if we’re happy!!
