Information and Follow-up Items

User Operations

The storage ring availability overall, for this run, has been 96%. Faults have been primarily due to power supplies and rf trips.

On Tuesday, February 9, starting at 0800, Machines Studies will take place for a total of 8 hours. At 1600 hours, the user run will resume and continue until Machine Studies takes place again on February 15.

Fill-on-fill with shutters open has been postponed until the next user run. Some details related to this operating mode need more evaluation and possibly a few tests. All issues are expected to be resolved by the next run. We will keep you informed of any schedule updates. A Cat Net message will be sent out today to let the entire group know of the delay.
