LhARA Weekly Meeting 9th June 2020; 14:00 BST

Summary of actions

  • KL: Create draft response to referees.
  • KL: Add new participants to the relevant mailing lists.
  • KL: Report detailed timeline and requirements for the EPSRC Transformative Healthcare Technologies call as they are known.

Notes

Present: P.Allport, R.Bingham, TS.Dascalu, O.Ettlinger, S.Green, T.Greenshaw, J.Hughes, G.Jones, HT.Lau, J.Matheson, J.Parsons, J.Pasternak, A.Price, G.Schettino, W.Shields, J.Thomason, T.Kokalova-Wheldon, C.Whyte

  1. Introduction: KL
  1. Notes of previous meetings and actions:
    • KL: Create draft response to referees.
      • Stands.

  1. Status of publication and pre-CDR:
    • The pre-CDR has been updated to bring it into line with the prepring and re-uploaded.
    • The paper is now with the journal (Frontiers) who have assigned it to an editori.
  1. Preparation of response to referees: KL, ALL
    • No concrete progress, needs to be taken forward next week.
  1. Updates:
    • Capture section: CW See detailed progress from TSD and HT. Good progress on setting up the necessary simulations. KL and CW have begun on the paperwork for the ERC proposal. RB has made progress in assessing the instabilities in the plasma lens.
    • Simulation:
      • Particle production at laser target]: HTL
        • Benchmarking of code continues. HT has retained the same gid size, but used a larger nymber of particles per cell. He now see less numerical heating. Results are said to look reasonable (OE). Belief is that this means that the simulations are converging. Still need to investigate the energy distribution etc.
      • Transport through Gabor lenses and energy selection, Gabor lens simulatin: TSD
        • Has begun to develop the electromagnetic simulation of the lens using the parameters described by CW. Details will be presented on Thursday.
    • Any other simulation
      • Agreed that we need to re-initiate the Experiment and simulation meetings. KL/WS to exchange emails with AK.

  1. Plans for CCAP plenary, 24Jun20; KL, JPa
    • KL needs to add new participants to the relevant mailing lists.
    • Proposed talks:
      • Overview (Kurup)
      • Design of the accelerator facility (Pasternak)
      • Simulating the accelerator facility (Shields)
      • Simulating the end stations (Hughes)
      • Possibly something on target and capture (HTL, TSD, CW, to be decided).

  1. Next steps: All
    • To include discussion of development of proposal for 3-year R&D programme
    • Unanimously agreed to prepare an application to the EPSRC Transformative Healthcare Technologies call.
    • KL will report detailed timeline as soon as it is known.

  1. AOB
    • JPar: 19Jun radiobiology event; all encouraged to attend.
