       electron cloud in JLEIC and present at R&D meeting
     - JLEIC: start to work on slides summarizing JLEIC collective

     - JLEIC: Collaboration Meeting (Oct 9-13)

Ed Nissen

   Previous two weeks (Sep 18-Sep 29)
     - JLEIC: chasing down issues around injection problems in the
       booster, and we determined that there may be dispersion in
       sections that are not dispersive.
     - ADMIN: Neil symposium (Sep 27)
   Next two weeks (Oct 2-Oct 13)
     - JLEIC: figure out the best way of combatting injection
       synchrobetatron coupling and hopefully get a good injection
       simulation going.
     - VACATION: Oct 9

Chris Tennant

   Previous two weeks (Sep 18-Sep 29)
     - JLEIC: trying to benchmark Bmad for a single quad (elegant and DIMAD
       agree but use the same phase space coordinates while Bmad does
       not; tried (with Dave's help and a 30+ year old TN he wrote) to
       do the appropriate transformations. Still not making sense)
     - PERLE: learning/trouble-shooting Cheng-Ying's code for use with
       acceleration (to model S2E PERLE lattice)
     - JLEIC: summarizing results from analysis of CCR "simple arc"
       (microbunching is under control, one pass through arc is okay,
       10 passes through a ring comprised of arc and we're doomed -
       CSR longitudinal wake induced energy spread growth/distortion
       and CSR-generated emittance growth)
     - ADMIN: Neil symposium (Sep 27)
   Next two weeks (Oct 2-Oct 13)
     - CRADA signed? (a talk at the symposium raised the possibility
       of renewed interest in FEL for Navy and/or lithography in 2025
       time frame - woot!)
     - JLEIC: resolve Bmad issue and proceed to play with CSR/CSR
       shielding capabilities (benchmarking with elegant if possible)
     - PERLE: proceed with PERL analysis - really need some results
       for multiple turns. Suspect they are doomed too.

Randy Gamage

   Previous two weeks (Sep 18-Sep 29)
