Things that I am working on
Ground motion studies for
the Tevatron and future accelerators
Permanent Magnet R&D at
The MuCool beam line at Fermilab
motion projects and data
- As part of R&D for future accelerators a Hydrostatic water level
system has been installed in a dolomite mine near Fermilab and in the MINOS
near hall at Fermilab. Both are in the Galena Platteville dolomite. A data base has been setup every month data is added. Currently there are data
for MINOS from December 1 2005 through Oct 30, 2011 and data from the Lafrage mine from September 1st 2006 until Oct
25, 2011. February of 2010 a system of 6 Budker sensors were
installed in the 2000 ft level of the Homestake mine these data
are being added to the data base. In June of 2011 12 Ultra
Sonic HLS sensors were installed on the 4850 ft level. The data is
also in the data base.
- There is a list of all my
on these systems
I will try to keep this up to date.
- In January of 2009 I went to Lead
South Dakota to help with installation of a HLS in the Homestake gold mine. The mine is
flooded and there is a desire to monitor ground motion as the water is removed
in preparation for the Deep
Underground Science and Engineering Lab (DUSEL). There are pictures of the
installation and data
- As part of my water level work I have set up a test of several different
and data are available.
- I am preparing a paper on HLS systems in use at Fermilab and DUSEL. This
is a work in progress this is the link to the paper and the figures.
- September 11th 2012 the IWAA will be held at
Fermilab and I will present a paper on the status of
all HLS systems at that time.
Permanent Magnet Work
Mu Cool and the
MTA beam line
Cooling experiment at Fermilab is a series of test to see if it is possible
to reduce the momentun spread of muons. There is a 400 MeV beam line off of the
LINAC at Fermilab that brings H- into the experimental hall. There are some pictures of the beam line
avaiable. Also there is a job
list of things that need to be done.
There is a need to re train the Mu Cool
Solenoid to get to 5 Tesla. Here is a link to get to some information on that work.
