2016-Jun-13 Accel. Phys. Biweekly Report
Here is the biweekly report from Physics. I use initials for group members as usual: AB=Alex Bogacz, DD=Dave Douglas, CT=Chris Tennant, AC=Alex Castilla, RG=Randy Gamage, TS=Todd Satogata. A lot of group time is involved in the ERL and IEB workshops in this period. I'll chat with Yves separately about whether more work is needed from Chris on the CSR experiment LDRD over the next month.
