ROTATING TARGET

  • Discussion about rotation scheme and mechanical movement and material


PION-KAON PHYSICS

  • Discussion about new physics with a K-long beam


K-LONG BEAM EXPERIMENT

  • Experiment will access KLp --> Ksp and KLp --> pi+Lambda at a KL rate of 10^4 KL/s - this is 2500 times SLAC
  • Main background is from neutrons, key goal for radcon is a dose rate of 1mrem/hr at the ceiling above the Gluex detector
  • Discussion about the number of days required (currently 100 days in proposal)
  • Next steps:
  • get PAC approval
  • for proposal may include for CPS: tagger area, first engineering changes for Hall D, simulations with CPS only
  • evaluate different configurations for different number of days to address questions about required beam time
