Max Bruker

  Previous two weeks (May 10 - May 21)
     - IPAC poster + video + paper done
     - I repeated some simulations of the emittance growth in the IMP experiment with phase dithering to make sure they all use the same, most recent tracking code. Unfortunately, the result does not agree with reality anymore! This may be something to study at a later point. For now, I left the dithering results out of the IPAC material.
     - We wanted to start beam commissioning of the CEBAF injector upgrade this week, but it was delayed by a series of unfortunate circumstances.
  Next two weeks (May 24 - June 4)
     - Start the aforementioned beam commissioning phase.




Bhawin Dhital

   Previous two weeks (May 10 - May 21)
     - Completed papers preparations for IPAC'21. Two papers submitted for publications.
     - Completed videos uploads for a contributed talk and for a poster presentations at IPAC'21.
     - I was working on new lattice with isochronous arc.
   Next two weeks (May 24 - June 4)
     - I will participate at IPAC'21 virtual conference starting 05/24/2021 and ends at 05/28/2021.
     - I will be working with new dual energy ring and parameters calculation.





Amy Sy

   Previous two weeks (May 10 - May 21)
     - Review of student applications as part of the selection committee for MFURA awards.
     - Continued work with the Brown-Servranckx transform for round, uncoupled beam from a magnetized beam. Trying to characterize the effects of different forms of the Brown-Servranckx transform, both with and without the 2.5D space charge solver enabled. The 3D space charge solver seems to result in huge, unphysical beams, so still trying to understand this module and its implementation.
     - Laser particle counter: test apparatus has been reassembled in TL 1011. Minor modifications, including moving the vacuum pump off of the bench to the floor, may be necessary as testing resumes. The vendor has received and tested initial hardware components and plans to be on site 5/26 and 5/27, returning once per week on a continuing basis thereafter.
     - Usual biweekly meeting with Omnisensing Photonics to discuss general progress.
     - Prepared and gave a short presentation on parametric-resonance ionization cooling (PIC and Skew PIC) concepts, implementation, and challenges as part of the 1st Muon Community Meeting hosted by CERN. Presentation was part of an overall presentation on advanced muon cooling concepts.
   Next two weeks (May 24 - June 4)
     - Attending virtual IPAC2021. Following week: catching up on IPAC talks missed during on site work.
     - Laser particle counter: On site visit by vendor on 5/26 and 5/27. A 6-channel prototype was delivered instead of the 12-channel prototype expected due to hardware delays. Initial visit to familiarize ourselves with the hardware and GUI for data-taking. The current prototype can only record data from two channels simultaneously, so an obvious action item is to enable simultaneous recording of data from all six available channels. 
     - Submitted an action item list to the vendor. Vendor will return with prototype detector either 6/3 or the following week.
