Max Bruker

  Previous (Oct 26 - Nov 6)
     - Thought about the EIC LLRF
     -	Participated in UITF run 2. We mostly supported HDice; there was not much room for machine studies, though booster trips remain a recurring issue.
     -	Submitted the revised version of the IMP manuscript. It involved more discussion and some fixes/reruns of the simulations, but it seems consistent now and we can feel good about it.
  Next (Nov 9 - Nov 20)
     - Maybe finally get a good starting point for RF simulations
     -	Start looking at Fay's gun
     -	UITF run 3 depending on the shift schedule

Bhawin Dhital

   Previous two weeks (Oct 26 - Nov 6)
     - I was working on momentum aperture and Touschek lifetime calculation in dual energy storage ring.
     - We are using our own python script to calculate momentum aperture in dual energy ring. This code printsout the maximum momentum acceptance value for each 
       machine element. Dr. Fanglei Lin has written the python code for it and I am trying to understand and implement it in our system.
     - I have presented the status and update on dual energy ring cooler in EIC meeting at Jefferson Lab on Nov 06. Dr Douglas Higinbotham asked me to present my research 
       in that meeting as I got the EIC fellowship 2020.
   Next two weeks (Nov 9 - Nov 20)
     - I will be working on momentum aperture calculation in dual energy storage ring. We came to know that the momentum aperture in high energy ring is smaller than the 
       momentum aperture value in the low energy ring. This is limited by the SRF cavities we use to accelerate the beam energy in high energy ring.
     - I will be editing the tech notes written on dual energy storage ring. When editing completes, It will be sent to JLab online system.
     - Calculating Touschek lifetime analytically and using elegant simulation.

Amy Sy

   Previous two weeks (Oct 12 - Oct 23)
     - Submitted input to EIC Biweekly report.
     - MADX optimization of integrated solenoid/quadrupole/skew quadrupole fields for a compact spin rotator. Integrating the quadrupole and skew quadrupole fields into 
       the solenoids can potentially save ~10 m of space per solenoid, for ~20 m total. Solutions matching to the optics while zeroing out the coupling parameters beta12, alfa12,    
       beta21, and alfa21 using PTC_TWISS in MADX were very difficult to find when dispersion constraints were also included in the optimization. Preliminary solutions for both        
       solenoid modules were found by relaxing the horizontal dispersion and dispersion prime constraints on the match. The coupling parameters are about an order of magnitude 
       larger than in the original lattice, and further work is needed to study the implications of this on the beam dynamics in the spin rotator.
     - Attended meetings on revisions of the IMP experiment paper.
   Next two weeks (Oct 26 - Nov 6)
     - Collected and edited inputs to the September 2020 EIC Design Update Newsletter.
     - MADX optimization of integrated solenoid/quadrupole/skew quadrupole fields for a compact spin rotator. Continued optimization to reduce the magnitudes of the coupling 
       parameters and final quadrupole strengths.
