Highlights on activities

  • All group members attended IPAC15 (two talks and over a dozen posters)
  • Two MEIC visitors (Kondretenko and Barber)


Slava Derbenev

  • IPAC conference - presented poster "Scanning Synchronization of Colliding Beams in MEIC"
    - discussing topics of MEIC design (ion linac, boosters, beam-beam, cooling, polarization) with colleagues/experts in the fields
  • Post-conference week
    - working about idea of stacking/forming ion beams in rings with coupled (circular) betatron modes as possible way to overcome space charge limit for better e-cooling and luminosity
    - other issues of MEIC designs have been discussed with A. Kondratenko and other colleagues of CASA


Fanglei Lin

  • Attended the IPAC15 at Richmond, had one talk and one poster.
  • Worked with Desmond Barber in understanding and establishing the code SLICK/SLICKTRACK for the study of electron polarization in the MEIC.


Vasiliy Morozov

  • My main activities were IPAC and working with Anatoliy on ion polarization.


Amy Sy

  • Presented posters on helical bunch merge and skew PIC simulations at IPAC15
  • Gave contributed talk on radioisotope production using ERLs at IPAC15
  • Contributed nonlinear resonance simulations to skew PIC talk at MAP Spring Meeting


Yuhong Zhang

  • Present 5 posters at IPAC
  • Had many discussions with colleagues on MEIC on various MEIC R&D topics
  • Working on LDRD bunched beam cooling demo project
  • Started organization of COOL15 workshop


Two-week look

  • A kick-off meeting for e-cooler
  • Resume of MEIC R&D meeting
  • A new visitor, Michael Sullivan of SLAC, will visit us on the first week of June
