1.) Mildly successful DCS experiments.

  • DCS did not allow work overnight
  • DCS reduced our total experimental window by 1 day, and gave it to NNSA
  • Diffraction took first 4 days to set up
  • Was only given 12 hours to run PAIRLS (Piezo Actuated Intermediate Rate Loading System) experiments
  • DCS hutch B has no galvonometer so 2 scintillators broke, replaced, and refocused
  • 4-5 tests out of 20 were successful for PAIRLS
  • Tests on sandstone were unsuccessful

2.) Working on DTRA progress report
