Actions (from PC_120927)

  • Victoria:
    - Consider hysterisis effect on Q789 w.r.t. systematic errors on emittance
    - Consider the error on the effective length of Q789 depending on model used (reality/top hat/slice/G4MICE)
  • Ole:
    - Discuss symmetric momentum distributions with C. Rogers w.r.t. muon front end.
    - For (6, 200) baseline beam, what % of muons are lost between TOF0 and TOF1? (And where do they go?)
    - As above, but for pions (do they all decay or are some also scraped off in quads?)
    - Ed (Santos), when looking at a 'pion' beam from the single-station tracker test, sees it offset to one side at TOF0 and the other side at TOF1. Is this to be expected?
  • Adam & co:
    - Consider what might happen to helical fitting if the field is non-uniform (effect of magnetic shielding)
  • John:
    - Ask Holger for a field map we can use that includes potential magnetic shielding (and upload here?)
