Present: Ajit Kurup, Ken Long, Jaroslaw Pasternak, Will Shields, Colin Whyte
Apologies: Neil Bliss, Hywel Owen

  • Actions
    • Dockerfiles for BDsim: WS sent AK the link to the Dockerfiles for BDSIM. AK will try these out.
  • JP: spoke to Scott, he is using TraceWin. The license is single user and single machine so we can't use it. Alternatives are Parmilla and Astra.
  • Slides from Will
    • Optimisation using 5 lenses.
    • GDFSolve is now producing solutions.
    • Need to apply nozzle exit aperture cut (2.87mm radius) on the SCAPA distributions.
  • Slides from JP.
    • Optimisation (using BeamOptics code) using SCAPA distribution.
    • Capture section rematching.
    • Can use 1 energy collimator for stage 1 and stage 2 (previous solution required a different collimator for stage 1 and stage 2).
    • Solutions using 7 gabor lenses.
    • Looked at using quads downstream of the RF (after the energy collimator).
    • Looked at using 2 doublets (4 quads) just after exit of the nozzle with a view to being able to increase the aperture if nozzle aperture needs to be increased.
    • Need to simulate using BDSIM.
    • Need to see how quad lattice performs with space charge, previously this was difficult.
  • AOB
    • JP: collab meeting 8/2/23 in Birmingham. Can't make it.
      • WS agreed to give the talk remotely.
    • JP: Milestone to update the baseline is due soon.
      • discussion re readiness for this.
      • Need to prepare a report. AK agreed to be the editor.
