Notes from this meeting:

  • Superheated fluid will be C2F6
  • Beam Energy Tasks:
  1. Analyse beam energies used during September 2015 Bubble Chamber Run I, similar to what Grames did for Mott run.
  2. Measure stray field in 5D line (Bubble Chamber) since new steel was added between 5D00 and 5D01 BPMs and to extend measurement to radiator.
  3. Use Hall Probe installed inside dipole to study systematic errors (especially magnet power supply) in beam energy measurement (0.01% accuracy, resolution to 2 ppm, and a temperature stability of 10 ppm/°C).
  • Measure 19F(γ,α)15N around 5.4 MeV electron kinetic energy to map huge change in rate in this region. Develop a procedure to enable running below 1 nA beam currents.
  • Temporary Operational Safety Procedure (TOSP) expired on December 8, 2015. Needs new approval with updates on modifications: no mercury, new collimator, new lead camera shielding.
