13C5+ / 19.8 MeV

Tandem - 45o E beam line.
- newly installed MS line
Succesful tests, progress listed below.
Commisioned 4 anode E-DE detector,
Improved transmission,
Developed predictive running, 
Developed capability for low beam currents (fempto amps),
Commisioned fast closing valve
Improved GVM slitless stabilisation.
Improved BPM sensitivity,
Beam alignment of HE Quads, Analyser Quads, Target line Quads. Ran the last few days with a modern carbon cone .... stability under GVM needs to be improved further, and modern carbon cone technology needs developing.
