SmartPhantom meeting: Wednesday 2nd October 2019, 11:00 BST

Notes:

Present: JB, KL, HTL, LC

  1. Notes and actions from last meeting:
    • KL: Liaise to develop concept for polishing.
      • Stands.
    • KL: Prepare revision to schedule for the next meeting.
      • Stands. Agenda item.
    • KL,AK,HTL: Consult to specify the data recording at MedAustron.
      • Done. We propose:
        • We get a trigger from the `machine start' from the synchrotron at MedAustron. Implies we need to know the signal type and convert as necessary.
        • We then run the cameras in ‘video camera’ mode;
        • We start the readout after a delay to be determined. The delay needs to be such that the cameras start to run ‘just before’ the beam arrives.
      • Agreed.
    • AK: Invent a note numbering scheme so that HTL's note can be "published" on the wiki as a CCAP note.
      • Stands. Probably can discuss with HTL and (to coin a phrase) get it done!
    • HTL: Add CCAP note number to the header of the note and post it as a CCAP note.
      • Stands.
    • AK: Purchase hard-drive to store SmartPhantom data in operation.
      • Stands.
    • KL or HTL: Transport optical components from Imperial to RAL (LC).
      • Done.
    • LC: Complete detailed design of the boot.
      • Stands/Done.
    • KL: Prepare a revised costing spreadsheet for next meeting.
      • Stands. Agenda item.
    • KL: Initiate discussion of of visit to MedAustron to review SmartPhantom design.
  1. Baseline schedule and progress against schedule: KL/HTL
    • Some uncertainties in the timetable now since we need to revise the design. Need to make a revision for the next meeting.
  1. Mechanical design/manufacture update: LC
    Prototype Update. No additional notes.
  1. Control system and SciWire readout update: AK
    No report this week.

  1. Optical readout: JB
    No update this week.
  1. Simulation/analysis update: HTL
    Preliminary Sr-90 Simulation. Photon rate seems acceptable. Agree to set-up a test to check light from single fibre.

  1. Spend status, discussion of outstanding requirement: KL/All
    No additional items discussed. As for schedule, need to make a revision for the next meeting.
  1. Next steps: All
    • Black out 527 at Imperial.
    • Polishing test.
    • Finalise boot design.
    • Work to produce two more stations.

Venue: my apologies; I did not book a room at Imperial!

Perhaps JB and HTL et al can work out a convenient common location.
