LhARA Capture meeting: 10MAR22; 16:00 BST

Present: CB(Chair), KL, BB, TD, EB, CW, MC. Apologies: AK


*EB: supervising student working on PIC simulations of co-propagating electrons - update in due course

*CB: ITRF 'hard' costs still unknown, but expected soon. Proposal to be updated soon afterward to meet set deadlines.

*As TD gave simulation update at recent fortnightly meeting, and detailed update of Capture WP expected at collaboration meeting, options discussed for 19Apr22 scientific contribution

*EB source simulation update potentially on 5Apr22

*As still no license for VSim available, no simulation update from TD

*TD abstract and oral presentation at IOP HEPP conference accepted

*Current Swansea solenoid issues discussed

*Consensus to accept as-is (i.e is 10% low, in accordance with TD simulations, models, and CB measurements)

*Further testing possible, but not worth much effort

*MC updates design paper contribution is progressing well

*Doodle poll live for new 1/2-day discussion

*HT completion discussed

Summary of actions:

*KL to chase ND for slides - Done

*Doodle poll for 1/2-day to be completed - All

*Consider capture proposal update presentation on 19Apr22 - CB

*Send contributions to CB when ready - TD
