   Previous two weeks (Apr 15 - Apr 26)
     - “CASA Beam-Beam” Updated the calculation code based on the optimized formula of the spin response function. 
     - Studying of the zero-integer spin resonance strength. From 23.0GeV, 23.1GeV, 23,2GeV, …, till to 320GeV, the
       performance of the zero-integer spin resonance strength has been implemented by the updated CASA Beam-Beam code.
       The numerical result was analyzed in our team will be demonstrated on IPAC19 pear review paper.
     - Crab kicking combined with Elegant - We are still simulating and studying the Crab Kicking and Beam-Beam via CASA 
       beam-Beam, BeamBeam3D and Elegant. The benchmark will be demonstrated in IPAC19 poster and the paper. 
   Next two weeks (Apr 29 - May 10)
     - Prepare the poster for IPAC19.
     - Spin tracking.



Diagnostic Development - Kevin Jordan

   Previous two weeks (Apr 15 - Apr 26)
     - Had power installed for high efficiency magnetron project; the first of two will arrive in 
       a couple weeks. The 480 VAC was tied in to where the Dark light solenoid PS was located. The
       work will be done in the LERF lab 1.
     - Prepared & installed BNNT flag at 7A08, also had discussions on nomenclature & CED - the name 
       of a viewer is based on flag material; OTR/YAG or ’normal’ (Chromox)
     - Worked with Joe on Isotope shielding
     - Finished CRADA for Halo monitor SBIR
     - Preparing for LCLS-II cryomodule swap
   Next two weeks (Apr 29 - May 10)
     - Attend the Canadian Light Source MAC meeting
     - Continue with the prep for the magnetron transmitter
     - Mount the Tungsten radiator on water cooled copper for Isotope project


Joe Gubeli

   Previous two weeks (Apr 15 - Apr 26)
     - ARC 7 SLM installation and alignment. The install went extremely well and S&A in nearly done with aligning.
     - Finished the design of the Isotope shielding – a much simpler and cheaper design See picture below.
     - Have a tentative plan to wire up the HPWS
   Next two weeks (Apr 29 - May 10)
     - Finish the Isotope Shielding presentation
     - Help with the wiring, testing and reconfiguration (changing of input direction) of the HPWS
     - Prepare LDRDS for FAST if we get installation approval
