  1. Chandan: GEM performance HAPLOG 4187
    • Siyu: we are working one 6 GEMs alignment. We are checking if every step makes sense, eg. unknown spots. Based on SBS cosmic test, we can achieve ~100 um precision for alighment.
    • Chandan: I have tried to alighment GEM with VDC tracks.
    • KK: what will be beam energy in the upcoming run period?
    • Dustin: we have uninstalled the lowest GEM below the detectors.
  2. Tao: Beam correction (Lagrange-All results) HAPLOG 4186
    • surprised to see chi-square improved at pitt level compared to slug level plots
    • Why regression 5 bpm has a big chi-square?
      • KP: we don't trust 5 BPM regression. Regression can give minimum width but misleading central value. It can be wrong with limited BPM resolution.
      • PA: Correlated BPM electronic noise can be the problem in regression 5 BPM. Using all BPMs in regression and Lagrange multiplier will help.
    • David: why ditheirng vs Lagrange all has a larger error bar 3.5 ppb ? Is it the systematic error?
      • KP: dithering has limited BPMs resolution compared with Lagrange all.
      • KK: we can't tell systematic error based on this error bar.
    • David A: why in the first ~ 13 slugs, the differences between lagrange all and regression all shifted to one side and noisy?
      • TY: we haven't look at details in these slugs yet. It seems to be the lower current run period
      • CP: when do we start using bpm 11X as energy monitor? KP: slug3.
      • KP: Maybe it is beam tune. still not clear why it is correlated with beam current. Something we can look into it.
      • David: It maybe the dithering coefficients are wrong.
