Accelerator update, Oct. 7

Proton Source
AD personnel worked on the LRF3, replacing an interlock module and relay. Tuning and short studies were performed as needed.

Main Injector/NuMI
Between Sept. 30 and Oct. 7, the Main Injector provided 149 hours of proton beam to the NuMI target for the production of neutrinos for MINERvA, MINOS and NOvA. The machine delivered an integrated intensity of 6.61 x 1018.

AD personnel investigated aperture restriction in MI-30.

AD personnel worked on the MI-52 Septa system, extraction and beamline tuning.

Fixed-target area: Test Beam Facility
AD personnel worked on tuning beam for the Meson Test experiments in the Fermilab Test Beam Facility.

Fixed-target area: SeaQuest
Experts installed magnets and connected instrumentation in preparation for the startup of the SeaQuest experiment later this month.
