Present: Ruth, Will, HT, Theo, Ajit

  • Gabor lens update
    • Design changes in the pipeline.
    • Pump being refurbished.
  • SciWire update
    • Tests with source done but rate from the source much lower than expected so could not see scintillation light.
    • Will try testing with a torch+collimator.
  • SmartPhantom update
    • Winding tests done with fishing wire. Frames being redesigned to improve stiffness and prevent warping.
  • Round table.
    • Ruth: Hammersmith machine being used for treatment.
    • Will:
      • Working on applications with IBA
      • HT: Would like scoring planes to simulate the water phantom.
        • In development branch. Waiting to be merged.
      • Can consider installing linux on Windows using Windows subsystem for linux on the server. This would allow installing BDSIM in Windows.
    • Theo: Doing GPT simulations investigating phase space and emittance with different levels of space charge. Optimising design of the arc using MADX.
  • AOB
    • New server delivered. Operating system will be installed by ICT.
