The Magnet Systems Group is back to work in HAB, building the Mu2e transport solenoid magnets. We performed what we believe is the first "critical lift" under the new FESHM 10200 Lift Plans chapter on Wednesday, June 3. This is test unit TSUN08 in its warm testing position.

The Magnet Systems Group is back to work in HAB, building the Mu2e transport solenoid magnets. We performed what we believe is the first “critical lift” under the new FESHM 10200 Lift Plans chapter on Wednesday, June 3, using two cranes to rotate test unit TSUN08 from the bore-tube-horizontal warm testing position to the bore-tube-vertical cold testing position.

On Wednesday, March 13, members of the Accelerator Division will hold their annual Hackathon. The day-long event allows individuals and groups to pursue ideas that daily schedules do not typically allow time to address. The following day, Thursday, March 14, the entire laboratory is invited to the lab’s first Hack-n-Doodle. OPTT will accept inventions drawn or written on napkins as official invention disclosures and potential technologies for patenting.
