Question

​What are the steps necessay to install my experiment in the tunnel?

Answer

Assuming your experiment has been approved, Christine Clarke (cclarke@slac.stanford.edu) will organise the installation.

1. Get your apparatus to SLAC.

2. Stage your apparatus outside of FACET (we have space available in End Station B's clean room and we can also arrange space in MFD's *very* clean room) to confirm that all the neccessary parts are present and in good condition to be installed. Because of this stage, you need to have your parts delivered to SLAC well in advance. At least a day is necessary to stage and check all the items and then if there are any issues, it could take around a week to resolve.

There fore you must deliver your apparatus to SLAC 1-2 weeks before installation. Sooner is preferred.

3. Install it. Usually the experimenters are aided by Test Facilities staff or MFD Vacuum technicians depending on the type of work involved. Christine arranges the support. Usually this will occur during FACET downtime.

Sometimes we install apparatus on access days though this is not preferred and due to the difficulties in scheduling this, this can delay beam delivery to the experiment.
