  • Simulations, see slides from Will.
    • Tested emittance growth with just a drift.
    • GPT sampling in time and not using screens does not show the emittance growth.
    • No idea why using screens has this issue.
    • HO: Can contact people at LD who use GPT regularly to see if they can help.
    • HO posted a link to this article
    • NB: What are the details of the nozzle?
      • 2.87mm is the exit aperture radius. Can increase this aperture to 4mm to improve transmission.
  • Document preparation.
    • NB circulated the pdf and has sent Hywel link to the Word
  • CAD, slides from Clive.
    • CAD of Gabor lens and target chamber for SCAPA.
    • A tape drive target has been added to the drawing.
    • The diagnostic camera behind the target requires a target to end flange distance of 130mm.
    • Discussion on the different vessels needed for the laser target.
    • HO gave some details of the EPAC target.
    • Discussion of details of the target region.
    • HO: Where does the waste laser go? This is an issue for EPAC.
    • A meeting with Ross and Chris should be arranged to discuss these details.

  • AOB
    • Agreed to cancel the meeting next Tuesday as we will meet on Friday.
