Operating Schedule

NEW FY 2017 SPEAR Operating Schedule


see Schedule Archive


The SSRL storage ring team is in the final stages of installing hardware that will enable reducing the SPEAR3 emittance to 6 nm from its present value of 10 nm.  The last piece is the installation of the thin septum injection magnet that will occur this summer.  Work to implement the new lower emittance optics in SPEAR3 will proceed after the summer shutdown, with delivery for operations expected sometime during the FY2017 user run.
