Preliminary Agenda

  • Effect of Reduced Focus Coil current on MICE Step IV and Step VI Reduced-FC-Current-Slides.odp Reduced-FC-Current-Slides.pdf (Rogers)
  • Step IV emittance study/tracker alignment algorithm (Santos)
  • EMR Analysis/Run progress (Ruslan)
  • G4beamline Step 1 comparisons (Soler/Bayes/Nugent) AnalysisMeeting1710.pdf
  • TOF rate analysis (Durga)
  • Gauging the success of Step IV (Blondel/All)
  • Multiple scattering & energy loss models (Middleton)
  • Dipole Field-Current Discrepancy (Nebrensky)
    • Apologies, I'll be setting up the beamline as BLOC.
    • Preliminary results still in eLog entry 2413
      • Note that field in centre of dipole bore (long probe) is maybe 1% less than measured against pole (short probe) so not an explanation for a >5% discrepancy
      • As per VB slide last time, should we be giving dipoles 2 minutes to settle at each setting? Or is 1 min enough? (tolerable error?) This would need enforcing via Run Control...
    • Note also eLog entry 2141 - inconclusive. I'm not really sure what I'm looking for from that analysis though!
    • I've dug out and archived on the Grid our "official" field maps for Q35 quads and dipoles - eLog entry 2433
  • AOB
  • Next time:
    • Quadrupole/TOF alignment study (Overton)
    • Magnetic measurements (Blackmore/Leonova)
    • Pion contamination in Step I (Domizia/Ole)
    • Tracker Update (Dobbs)
    • Date of next meeting: Proposed date is October 31st (NB: Clocks will have gone back in the UK at this point)
