Counting rates in the Compton detectors after chicane tune:
Photon rate: saturation
Electron rate: 250 kHz/uA
Both rates should be well below 1 kHz. Beam steering and focusssing in the compton chicane didn't make appreciable difference in background rates. The injector tune or linac path lengths might be
off. MCC is working on minimizing the background rates.
