  1. Beam modulation: Victoria haplog3688
    • VO: the old values for the modulation (X: 70uA, Y: 150uA current on coil) were from PREX1. We could probably have increased it even further.
    • VO: slide 5 is for 40 uA beam current
    • VO: the x modulation was much noisier so we are trying to make cuts so clean up the data.
    • SR: what was the range of motion for the energy coil? CG: the plot is of 14x but on 12x we should expect about 0.2mm amplitudes
    • VO: we need to fix the modulation pause, hopefully GM will help with that.
  2. Low current cavities: Ye[1]
    • YT: the internal gain factor for the cavity will need to be implemented in the GUI
    • YT: the bull’s eye scan was on Carbon (not W).
    • YT: the 4a showed some signal for 100nA but 4e was exactly 0
    • CG: is there an acceptance function for the scaler rates? YT: not clear
    • BM: striplings are not reliable under 0.5 uA. the 4A signal is kind of a miracle. We should clean up the data by looking at the steering coils currents.
  3. Compton: Amali hapLog3687
    • AP: the simulations had a 3.5% AN. The 70% polarization value is lower than expected (~82%)
    • KP: can you overlay the expected distribution over amplitude from the simulation? AP: will do.
    • AP: the expected Compton rate at 2uA was 2kHz. AP: the background was down to 70Hz/uA
    • KP: were the background linear from 2 to 20? DG: not linear, it went up by a factor of 1.5.
    • DG: the big spike at low amplitude in the spectrum was probably due to some activation. The detector counted even with beam off. JCC: the finger scintillators were also counting.
    • KP: there could be a pedestal error on the integration (potential problem extraction)
    • PS: is the detector integrating over more than one window? KP: we should be able to look at the trigger of the compton and change it independent of the helicity windows
  4. Moller: Sanghwa [2]
    • SP: the results are preliminary and we are actively investigating the data.
    • SP: we are investigating the reproducibility of the data. Effects from position/energy variations are prime suspects
  5. Discussion for next week:
    • Documentation: Bob
    • Beam line instrumentation: Caryn
