Shutdown – installing three new IDs

Summer shutdown 2016 has started. In the 3 GeV storage ring we will be installing three new IDs: the in-vacuum wiggler for BALDER, EPU53 for HIPPIE, and EPU48 for VERITAS. These are our first EPUs and they will be joining the two already operational in-vacuum undulators. In the 1.5 GeV storage ring we are installing the last remaining achromat and connecting the storage ring to the 1.5 GeV transfer line from the linac. When we recommence operations on August 29, we will restart the linac and for the first time extract beam into the 1.5 GeV transfer line. Hopefully soon afterwards, we will inject electrons into the 1.5 GeV storage ring marking the beginning of the 1.5 GeV storage ring commissioning.
