Meyer Tool Attends SPAFOA Meeting at Fermilab
November 24, 2014
Meyer Tool & Mfg., Inc. attended the Superconducting Particle Accelerator Forum of America’s (SPAFOA) fall meeting at Fermilab on November 4, 2014. As usual, the meeting was full of good information. It was also exciting to tour Fermi’s facilities including the new, state-of-the-art, IARC building. What a beautiful place to do research when it opens!
The agenda covered an update of Fermilab's accelerator technology activities, the status of the Illinois Accelerator Research Center, the Long Baseline Neutrino Project, an overview of the lab's technology transfer office, and a longer range view of the lab's high energy physics activities. In addition, we were briefed by SLAC via a remote video link, on the progress of the LCLS II program. Review the presentations.
Thanks to Ken Olsen and SPAFOA for bringing us together for an informative and interesting day!
