SSRL prepares plans for SPEAR3
Plans and preparations for SPEAR3 have taken another step. SSRL users will not have access to beamlines during the installation and commissioning of SPEAR3, which is scheduled from approximately April 2003 through to January 2004. A subcommittee of the SSRL Users' Organization has been formed to represent users' issues related to the shutdown and to suggest ways that SSRL may be able to mitigate the resulting loss of beam time to users. The SSRL Users' Organization Executive Committee has scheduled their next meeting for Friday 15 March, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
