Gabor Lens meeting: 5MAY2022; 16:00 BST

Present: MC,CB(Chair),SE,TD,EB - JP,KL,CW
Apologies: AK


  • No outstanding actions
  • Excellent collaboration meeting and Disruptive Technologies workshop
  • Proposal and design update paper with various colleagues
  • No further update following Collaboration meeting.
  • Although TD only had ~<10days runtime, system changes made at Swansea to increase emission/beam current went as planned but results still seem to be single-particle dominate with densities~1013/m3 & 106<N<108. Seems that temperature is too high.
  • CB to continue to make apparatus changes (increase emission current with 3rd source & add P-screen due to MCP damage) & investigate.
  • TD to run remotely where possible, and visit when significant progress looks possible.
  • Swansea HPC resources discussed with respect to VSIM & GPU/CPU capability for ITRF proposal.
  • Further discussion with Tech-X needed.
  • Risk mitigation of capture system discussed.
  • JP/WP6/TD to perform preliminary design efforts.
  • HT/EB particle distributions to be used.

Summary of actions:

  • CB to continue experiments where possible.
  • CB to send link for Swansea HPC resources - done
