[en] Over the last year considerable progress has been achieved on both technical and political fronts. Hardware studies have continued on both magnet power supplies and on rf cavities - the latter work gaining an extra dimension from a recently-instituted formal collaboration with LAMPF. A racetrack-shaped lattice is being considered in conjunction with a three-element slow extraction system in an effort to reduce losses to the 0.1% level. British Columbia has agreed to fund the buildings and tunnels (Cdn $87M) and is making the KAON Factory its tope priority project with the Canadian federal government. A joint federal-provincial delegation has traveled abroad and found that a number of countries would consider significant contributions to the cost. Government approval contingent upon such contributions is anticipated later in 1988, together with preconstruction R and D funds
[en] TRIUMF - the Tri-University Meson Facility - is a particle physics research centre run by the University of Alberta, the University of Victoria, Simon Fraser University, and the University of British Columbia. It is one of three meson factory accelerators in the world; it specializes in producing intense proton beams used mostly to create over a trillion pions a second. It is hoped that the facility can be upgraded to a kaon factory, using the output of the present cyclotron as feed to two synchrotrons. The kaons produced would be used to check the standard particle model
[en] The increased demands of an expanding accelerator laboratory have made it timely to consider strategies for expansion of the TRIUMF Control System. These requirements have led to reflections on one of the major themes of this conference - centralized vs. distributed digital control systems for accelerators. This paper discusses the way in which the TRIUMF system successfully combines elements of both approaches
[en] The TRIUMF accelerators represent the most powerful and versatile radioisotope production facility in the world. The 500 MeV cyclotron has three beam-lines that can operate simultaneous covering beam energies from 70 to 550 MeV with beam current up to 150 μA. In addition, Nordion International Incorporated operates two high powered cyclotrons for the commercial production of medical radionuclides. The CP42 and the TR30 cyclotrons accelerate H- ions as does the 500 MeV cyclotron giving them the capability of simultaneous beam extraction as well. The CP42 extracts beams between 15 and 41 MeV with a beam current up to 180 μA. The TR30 operates two beams of 30 MeV protons with beam current >250 μA each. The new TR13 cyclotron (13 MeV protons) has been completed and is dedicated to research in support of the PET clinical research program on the UBC campus, the radiopharmaceutical chemistry program at TRIUMF and the continued support of radioisotope research projects on the UBC campus
[en] The present report gives a short summary of current work at the TITAN mass spectrometer, including on-line mass measurements and systematic studies. A list of recent references for work published is given.
