Resumption of J-PARC Operations

   The operation of J-PARC accelerators had been stopped, due to the fire that broke out in the power supply building 2 of the J-PARC main ring accelerator on April 25.

   The tunning of the linac and RCS, after safety confirmation, has been resumed from May 10 (Wed.) and the user program of MLF will be resumed from May 14 (Sun.).

   For the main ring accelerator, we are preparing countermeasures and its operation in May is difficult. We will have an update around May 24.

   We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to you. We appreciate your understanding.

   Takashi Kobayashi, Director, J-PARC center
