12 GeV Upgrade will allow access to new scientific discoveries

• Total Project Cost $310M

• Upgrade accelerator and

infrastructure to allow delivery of 11

GeV to three existing experimental

halls and 12 GeV to a new hall

• Construct new hall and completely

new, large scale experiment (GlueX)

Physics – Hall B – Drift Chambers

At ISU: Reg.1 #2 almost

completed. They're hiring their

3 rd and 4 th stringers for parallel

stringing of the two chambers.

At ODU: Reg.2 #2 being

shipped at JLab soon, #3

and #4 almost done.

March 2012 Page 12

At JLab: Reg.3 #1 on the spit,

stringing has started.

Physics – Hall B – Silicon Vertex Detector

JLab MEIC Design

• The present JLab EIC design focuses on a medium CM energy range up to 65 GeV, however,

retains an upgrade option to reach higher energy and luminosity

• EIC reaches 6x1033 cm-2s-1 luminosity for a full acceptance detector at a 60x5 GeV2 design point,

and double this luminosity for a 2nd large acceptance detector. Proton energies up to 100 GeV are o.k.

(with luminosity scaling with γ).

• The present MEIC design takes a conservative technical approach by limiting several key design

parameters within state-of-the-art. It relies on regular electron cooling to obtain the ion beam


• CASA has established extensive collaborations with scientists worldwide on MEIC design and R&D.

It also works closely with the physics community.

Jefferson Lab Strategic Plan

The goal is to produce a concise document, perhaps not

more than 20 pages, which would start with a vision

statement and a set of goals for the laboratory as a whole

and would then delve deeper into what we do, developing

visions, goals, and outcomes at multiple levels.

The intent is that we engage our owners, both the science

and operations components of the lab, the laboratory

leadership more broadly, the staff, and the user

community, essentially all of our stakeholders, in the

Strategic Plan Status

• Held town meetings with Physics, Theory, Accelerator, FEL


• Also held one for “Technology Development and Technical

Infrastructure” – cryo, accelerator R&D, detector development,


• Open town meeting with users March 16

Lab leadership retreat in Summer 2012

• A comprehensive plan is the goal: < 1 year

March 2012 Page 25

Budget Situation

• FY 12 Budget

- Ops constrained by FY11 strictures, hard to generate reserve

- run in progress and will complete

- 12 GeV project $50M (Baseline = $66M)

• FY13 President’s Budget

- Ops ~constant

- 12 GeV project $43M

- UIM start $2.5M

• Mar 9 NSAC meeting

- Expected subcommittee to consider priorities under budget


- No charge…
