Safety Stand-DownSLAC has initiated a safety stand-down due to an electrical accident on site. This affects restarting the SSRL accelerator. In addition, a transformer failure has impacted SSRL operations, and its repair is delayed due to the stand-down. All SSRL user experiments through the third week of April have therefore been canceled at this point. SSRL will restart operations as soon as possible after receiving work authorization, and in compliance with new safety protocols under development at SLAC. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available, and SSRL will make every effort to minimize user impact due to this unscheduled downtime.
