Analysis phone call, 15:00 GMT, 4th December 2014. I did not book a room at RAL.


  • ACTION (Pasternak/Rogers): determine magnetic settings routine - do we imagine "equivalent coil"? Implement iron in MAUS? Run everything through OPERA?
  • ACTION (Pasternak/Rogers): determine standard magnetic settings for commissioning e.g. magnet currents for 420 mm beta in solenoid mode
  • ACTION (Pasternak/Rogers): determine standard beamline settings
  • ACTION (Dobbs/Rogers): specify MAUS implementation of "estimate of the error on the field as a function of position" in detail and implement
  • ACTION (Someone): would like to know how well the bobbin on which the coils are wound is aligned to the SS bores
  • ACTION (Rogers): arrange a "magnet bolting down meeting" to determine how Physics group does the handover of the magnet axes and how the installation will work
    • Steve Boyd "Alignment" meeting on Friday 12th December
  • ACTION (Rogers): Need to consider how we staff the "accelerator physics" during running
    • Meeting with Steve Boyd on Monday
  • ACTION (Rogers): Xboa specification document
  • ACTION (Rogers): Bring in Dobbs MAUS analysis framework to xboa?
  • ACTION (Rogers/delegate): need an accelerator physics helper for the analysis of existing batch simulations
  • ACTION (Rogers/Rajaram/Blackmore): Official plots and publications pages
