Let's meet next Friday, January 30th at 1:30pm EST in TL-2236. Some topics are listed below.

In the meantime, the Run 1 wiki has been updated run a chronology of events/logbook entries and the final on-line spreadsheet of runs and on-line results: https://wiki.jlab.org/ciswiki/index.php/Run1_-_January_2015

Lessons learned from Run 1

  1. Small aperture mouts may be impractical. Thin foils on backing on larger aperture mount seemed okay.
  2. Replace viewer with either gridded chromox or YAG crystal, and learn how to use video and image tools
  3. Make measurement, analysis, data logging as automatic and convenient as possible: Media:DataAnaScreen.pdf Media:DataAnaScreen.pptx
  4. Improve or standardize our capability for beam characterization (emittance, momentum, energy spread, bunch length)

Sibling thickness measurement status

FESEM measurements
profile of each target to sample thickness
profiles of 2-3 targets multiple foil locations (tests uniformity + preparation technique)
Sibling list

::0.050 um, 6809-B (done)

0.225 um, 7029-B
0.350 um, 5613-D (changed from A)
0.500 um, 5275-C
0.625 um, 7028-B

::0.750 um, 5134-B (done)

  • FESEM resolution is about 1.5 nm @ 15keV (l=h/p)
  • Sibling list of foils used (note, 0.05um foil 12 does not have sibling and both 0.35um foils 8 and 14 have same sibling)
  • Images saved as TIFF (highest quality of TIFF, BMP, JPEG)
  • ImageJ is free image analysis software hosted by NIH
Rough first analysis of two foils
