I have borrowed a fiber illuminator from Tom Lee's lab and made an adapter for our fiber. So we now have a microscope light on the Cascade. When turning off the lamp, please stop at the fan position for a minute to cool the lamp before going to the off position.

Dear cascade users,

We had a malfunctioning of the lamp source yesterday and have found out
with the help of Jim McVitte that one of the triac component on the circuit
board has been damaged beyond repair. We have already ordered the
replacement part and we expect it to arrive around next Monday. Hopefully
we can bring up the system by mid-next week.
