Amy Sy

   Previous two weeks (Jan 6 - Jan 17):
     - Longitudinal Schottky signal analysis for December 2019 IMP bunched beam cooling experiments. Plotting and evaluating spectrograms from the first set of data (700 ns bunch
       length, varying RF voltage from 0.6 kV to 2 kV) to check for missing data. Evaluating peak spacing and sideband evolution as RF voltage is varied. The synchrotron 
       frequency from the peak spacing appears to be ~50 Hz lower than expected from the experimental parameters, across all RF voltages 
     - Looking for the source of this 
       discrepancy.

     - Continued Schottky signal analysis for latest IMP experiment.
