I said we hoped we could get there over the weekend, but instead – like so
many of our commissioning experiences here – it took only an hour and a
half. We have now reached and exceeded the commissioning “CD4”
milestone for protons/pulse on target, and exceeded by a factor of eight the
neutron production efficiency!! Truly unbelievable!!
again to all – and thanks to those who have already sent congratulations.
PS You were better
to look at the URL before the intensity was cranked up – now it’s
so bright the detail is washed out.
