Gabor Lens meeting: 21May20; 16:00 BST

Present:

Notes

  1. Introduction, notes and actions: KL/All
    • JPo: Provide TSD with the geometry of the present prototype Gabor lens
      • Stands. Still seeking the dimensions of the present Gabor lens.
    • KL/RB: Take a look at the Bingham et al paper on laser-driven accelerator for medicine
      • Stands.
    • TSD: Provide beam envelope as a function of distance along the beam line for CW to plot
      • Done.
  1. Updates on the calculation of instability: RB
    • With design in hand, RB can prepare a calculation of the instablisities.
  1. Electron injection simulations: CW
    • Get electrons on axis by shaping electron emitter.
    • RB: optimise to get electrons on axis to limit diocrotron instability.
  1. Updates on the particle generation: HT
    • Dose-rate calculation.
    • Has run a simulation with SMILEI and is now beginning to unpack it
  1. ERC proposal timeline: KL/discussion
  1. Discussion of plasma simulation code - CST vs VSIM: All
    • Some experience at Strathclyde; CST has recent upgrade.
    • We discuss possible ways forward and conclude that we take a practical approach. Use VSIM from DF for now. Look at CST as we go.
    • TSD thinks VSIM more powerful that CST. So, happy with parallel approach.
  1. AoB
    • None.
