CASA Fellows
LERF - Steve Benson

   Previous two weeks (Nov 25 - Dec 6)
     - Assisted in run to the 1G dump with CW beam. Unfortunately we could not run beam.
     -	Reviewed SBIR

Andrew Hutton

   Previous two weeks (Dec 23 - Jan 3)
     - Before Christmas, I developed a scaling for the AWA-ANL defection cavity for JLEIC straight merger.  I managed to find a parameter set 
       that would enable the straight merger cavity to be a room-temperature copper cavity, rather than an SRF cavity.  But it is a bit of a 
       brute, so may not be the optimum.  
     - After Christmas, I returned to AccApp 2020 preparations.  I have already evaluated the Abstracts, now I am trying to develop a layout
       for each Session I am responsible for (4).  
     - Jan 3, I am hosting Courtney Washington for a visit to the isotope irradiation area in the LERF vault.  I promised her that I would
       invite her once she turned 18, which happened in November.  
   Next two weeks Jan 6 - Jan 17)
     - I will complete the AccApp 202 preparations.  
     - I have to prepare the first draft of the Quarterly Report for the Isotope Program.  In addition, Doug Wells and I have a conference call
       with Ethan Balkin, the DOE Isotope Program Manager, to discuss the relative importance of Copper64 when mixed with Copper 67.  
     - I leave for Vienna on January 9, returning on January 16, but will not come to the lab on January 17.
