AGENDA COLLABORATION MEETING

  • KLong talk (Sean) plus invite people for (informal) discussion about next steps - perhaps invite a local theorist
  • Possible theorists for DVCS/TCS/WACS - contact a few about availability (talk could be given remotely)


MAGNET

  • Status of vendor discussions about radiation hard coils
  • NZ - no radiation hard epoxy
  • PPPL/ITER - expert contacted
  • Florida High Magnetic Field - expert at ORNL contacted
  • JPARC/Tanaka - two companies contacted


SIMULATIONS

  • From an Hall B ERR learned that some GEANT4 versions fail to reproduce experimental data on neutron production - this may explain the observed difference in CPS simulations 2015 and recent FLUKA
  • observe three order of magnitude drop in cross section in latest compared to earlier GEANT4 versions
  • new GEANT version released is better after putting in photodisintegration, but still some problems
  • CPS simulations are in FLUKA - for now better to stay with this
  • compatible with GEANT4 for physics projections
  • Current CPS status: have new target magnetic field and made initial projections for radiation level at the coils - optimized simulations expected soon
  • TCS simulations: help from TCS proponents needed


ARTICLE

  • Two small outstanding issues to address - expect to have this done and post to the arXiv soon


FUNDING PROPOSAL

  • due January 20, 2020
  • need magnet cost
  • Cost share details


NEXT MEETING: FRIDAY 20 DECEMBER AT 11:00AM (ET)
