Revision as of 16:08, 8 February 2017 by Anichols
- Completed an analytic estimations of space charge effect on the cooling electron beam at the ERL and the cooling solenoids and gave a talk at the MEIC accelerator R&D meeting
- Continued MEIC conceptual design studies
- Continued the organization work of COOL15 workshop and collaboration meetings
- Gave two talks in Rick's cafe
- Looking at electron polarizations at high energies in the MEIC electron collider ring.
- Provided various electron ring downstream chicane optics and beam sizes, required by nuclear physicists.
- Continued working on establishing ZGOUBI, GPUSPINK and PTC.
- Will attend the COOL15 workshop from Sep.28 to Oct.2.
- Ion polarization: helping Anatoliy's group prepare DSPIN presentation, racetrack booster, presentation at one of the R&D meetings.
- Ion collider ring: exploring optics compensation schemes, holding teleconference with SLAC.
