  • Wouter -
    • Planning to install a farm version of remoll, that would allow users to just run a simulation with out building or compiling the simulation first.
  • Scott -
    • Presently looking at the energy distribution and positions of the pions incident on the lead wall. Having some issues looking at these distributions coming from the target cause of the inference from the simple Showermax detector presently implemented into the simulation. David contacted Dustin for the material and positions specs for the Showermax detector elements. He responded, we are presently attempting to implement a slightly better version of the Showermax for out simulation purposes. It is important to include an updated geometry because the tungsten thickness and radius coverage of the Showermax effects the energy and position of the detected pions in the pre-lead wall virtual detector.
    • Once we settle that issue, Scott will begin looking at the energy and positions distributions of pions exiting the lead wall.
  • Neven -
