Spring analysis
Dan has created a nice summary of our Spring runs (see a recent version in the Mott logbook here) and has begun analyzing the various studies. He'll give us an update, showing results from our Cu, Ag, Au "dry run"

Model update
Last we met, Marty made good progress on reproducing the spectra finding that by more realistic description of the PMT was reproducing energy resolution of ~2.0% as compared to measured ~2.6%. This was accomplished assuming dE/E ~0.1 %. I "owed" Marty some info on the realistic spread and it's closer to 50-70 keV in this region, so reasonable range is 0.5-1.0%. Let's hear about last ~month's progress...

Plans for Fall running
Last Spring we successfully recommissioned the Mott to learn it's "new" operating conditions and then collected dry-run data on Au, Ag, Cu. I'll prepare a summary table or slide, but let's discuss our priorities for Fall running so I can begin lobbying effectively for beam time.
