APS sets new standards for its future operation

This month, APS will see currents of 130 mA for a time which is aimed at analyzing the impact of higher currents on beamline components. APS recently completed its first run of 2002 providing the longest single user run in APS history (providing 1872 h of user beam time), while simultaneously establishing a new user run record for availability of 97.1%. As a result, records were also broken in the maximum integrated current delivered (182.2 A h) and, owing to the reliability of top-up operation, a record was achieved in the average current for the run (97.4 mA). The success of this run has set a new standard for future operation at the APS.
