David Douglas

  Previous two weeks (Apr 18-29)
    - JLEIC cooler: magnetized beam transport; I wrote a little
      documentation on a simplified linac-to-arc match that seems to
      help a bit with beam quality preservation
    - DarkLight: has heated up; sent around initial optics solution and
      started in on the IR I&C. Have rough solution for upstream end;
      testing before moving to downstream transport. Met with software
      and ops folks re LED and connections amongst EPICS, codes,
      and measurements as used in the ERL.
    - Cbeta: is heating up; I'm scheduled to help with a couple
      sections on the CDR - tolerances and commissioning; working with
      Adam Bartnik on the latter
    - MSU BES proposal: is in final stages. Geoff thought up an
      additional section that is being worked
  Next two weeks (May 2-13)
    - Cbeta: Continued CDR section writing, start of advising
    - Darklight: Continued preparation for summer runs, coordination
      with LED/ops, write TN on optics design
    - JLEIC Cooler: Writing TNs on magnetized beam transport

Ed Nissen

  Previous two weeks (Apr 18-29)
    - JLEIC Beam-Beam: evaluating initial growth rates for several sets
      of initial conditions with Guinea Pig
    - JLEIC: Installed and started learning Synergia
    - OPS: Completing training
  Next two weeks (May 2-13)
    - JLEIC: Continuing to learn Synergia
    - JLEIC Beam-Beam: Research/discuss modest-energy beam-beam models
      for comparisons of validity between Guinea Pig and other codes

Chris Tennant

  Previous two weeks (Apr 18-29)
    - Project E: Finished draft note on Touschek analysis
    - Project E: Reanalyzed ubunch gains for ASML lattice (with new improved code)
