Present: Chris Hunt, HT Lau, Will Shields, Ajit

  • HT - busy commissioning carbon beam.
    • Finalised carbon beam spot sizes in research room (room 1).
    • Issue in BDSIM using carbon beams. WS will look into it.
    • Got good comparison with protons at 800MeV comparing BDSIM and beam profile measurements. 120MeV-400MeV/nucleon carbon measurements were way off.
    • May be issue with the physics options.
  • Chris - Gabor lens update.
    • Paperwork for Radiation source nearly there.
    • Camera good but issues with getting it to work with the laptop.
    • Aim to have source installed next week.
  • Will
    • Need input from Claire or Ruth on cliniac geometries.
    • IPAC stuff.
    • IBA development on dosimetry.

○ Comparing voxelised simulations with dosimetry measurements.

  • AK - SciWire
    • SciWire construction started.
    • Low-energy beam diagnostics workshop last week was a success, with some interesting talks and discussions and a tour of the Gabor lens and laser facility and a few posters.
    • Also in the middle of dealing with the paperwork for the testing with the Sr-90 source.
