Good news on BEPCII commissioning keeps coming in! Following the peak luminosity at 4.91×1032cm-2 s-1 a few days ago,
|luminosity recored at 5.21×1032cm-2 s-1|
Thus, before the end of the year the BEPCII peak luminosity has been doubled at the ψ＇and ψ？ energy zone compared to last year. And further, the integrated luminosity per day, which is 21.7pb-1, exceeds the highest record of 13pb-1 in the last run. This has been the best shape for BEPCII achieved so far.
At the celebrations, Dr. CHEN Hesheng praised the efforts and achievements by cheering to the commissioning team. 5.21×1032cm-2 s-1 was actually the goal for 2011, now it has been achieved one year ahead of time. Dr. CHEN encouraged the team to take new challenges next year.
After the news was released, IHEP received many congratulations from both home and abroad, part of which is selected as below:
A move of tune towards half integer is a reflection of the high quality of the storage ring. This gain of luminosity is a hard-won success. Confratulations! Wish you and the BEPC a wonderful holidays season and a great happy new year!

Being able to operate so close to the half integer is very impressive and a tribute to the quality of the machine. Congratulations to the BEPC team for the impressive progress to date and I look forward to hearing of more in the New Year. Let me wish you and everyone at IHEP all the best for the holiday season and every success for the New Year.
