 h2. Preliminary Agenda 

 * Effect of Reduced Focus Coil current on MICE Step IV and Step VI attachment:Reduced-FC-Current-Slides.odp attachment: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)

 * 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)
