Status and Prospects for the 150ns Beam Injectors

General Info and Current News:

1) Parallel MDs in all machines take place every week day during the working hours (8:00 - 18:00)
2) Floating MDs take place in parallel with the LHC operation, and therefore they are stopped when
the LHC needs to inject. No physics is guaranteed during the MD time, but beam will be provided to
the PSB/PS physics users on a best effort basis.
3) The beam requirements for the 3rd LHC MDs (24-28 August) can be downloaded here.
