and click here for some older, but labeled Images of the Damping Rings 2
Images from the Metrology Group are also available that show how the Damping Ring components are aligned.
Vault Ceiling Core Drilling Project in preparation for RF waveguide
installation. Collection of images and description taken during Lombardo
In December 1999 the NDR Vault Ceiling Core Drilling was also done.
Their purpose is to reduce the emittance (shrink the beam
size) of the electron and positron beams.
A brief description of the function of a damping ring
is found on SLAC's Virtual Tour of the Accelerator

Damping Ring RF Support comes from AMRF where you can find useful Damping Ring RF data
The alignment of the Damping Ring components is done by SLAC's Metreology Group, with a collection of images here.
The weekly Damping Rings Engineering Meeting is held on Tuesdays at 10:00 in the Alexander Room, Bldg 280.
Follow this Engineering Meetings* link for the notes from these meetings.
We also maintain a page for current projects and work in progress, that also contains items we need to follow up on in future projects:
