  • Updates from Rakitha

Elogs to discuss,

  • Updates from Lorenzo

Scattering Chamber Activation Study

  • Present:

Juliette, Paul, Rakitha, KK, Lorenzo, Bob, Seamus, Dustin


  • Results from MCNPX simulation are compared with Geant4 simulation to understand Neutron production. Possible to get some results by next week.
  • Beam parasitic studies: By early 2014 we will be able to schedule parasitic studies.
    • So do we have to keep a list of studies we want to do with the beam?
  • Polarimetry Commissioning - Juliette will involve with the Compton commissioning what about Moller porimeter?
  • PREX DAQ resurrection before parasitic studies - Bob is in charge of this.
  • The current collimator design is kept to simple cylindrical shape to study beam interaction with the collimator
    • Current dimensions and Z location of the collimator blocks our acceptance
  • Now we are in a position to discuss things with the engineering as we have a better understanding of the collimator and the radiation it creates
  • Arrange a meeting with engineering as we now need help for cooling and design constraint on the collimator
    • Rakitha will come up with a basic prototype design diagram for engineering meeting and Bob will arrange a meeting with Engineering group
