Computational Physics - Y. Roblin
- JPOS meeting
- Continuing work on GHOST::
- Added GHOST to JeffersonLab GIT
- Started 4 on 3 testing and comparisons with Hao paper
- Simulation group coordination meeting
- working on defining the workload for Kirsten
- refining AWP for Kirsten and He Zhang
- attended stay-treat
next two weeks:
- get my laptop back..
- prepare for JPOS
- continue working on GHOST
- Did more DC cooling simulations at 8GeV. This time for the Pb ion at 7.9 Gev/u .
With 1A of electron beam and 30 meters of cooler, we reach equilibrium within one minute. Final emittance ranges from 0.2 to 0.6 mmrad depending on electron density. Simulations suggests that it is adequate to cool the Pb beam at injection energy .
- Improved model beam method: Rederived analytical formulas for the averaged cooling effect and double checked the software implementation. Two different formulations were obtained. Compared these two with the original model beam and the rms dynamic model for DC and bunched beam cooling. Results differs between models. More simulations needed to understand the differences up to and including turn by turn tracking.
- JSPEC user interface: A text based user interface is being developed for JSPEC. It is a sort of a scripting language that can be used to describe the problem to solve. More development done on it and considering refactoring the code to make it easier to maintain and add more features.
- SURI summer student - Helped Zachari fix problem in vertical IBS calc. Results look reasonable. Zachary finished by simulation the evolution of emittance over time. He calculated the evolution for 30 minutes and made various plots which he used for his poster and paper..
Next two weeks:
- Continue testing improved model beam method maybe simulation more DC cooling for Pb ion if necessary Considering going back to work on dust particle transfer problem.
- Continue working on RF system optimization paper.
