  • Director's Review - Pion Detector Comments Review
    • Do we really need to include a separate generator for mu+mu- generation?
      • Maybe, depends on our true needs. Could approach it in a similar method to the Hall D generator.
      • Rakitha might already have the data in his older radiation studies.
    • Wouter: Should also merge Rakitha's shielding into the master then into the pion branch.
      • Seamus: Should consolidate the different unused branches back into master.
      • Wouter: Could split the geometry into a separate repo from the simulation.
    • Seamus: Maybe we should get rid of GDML and move to hard-coded geometry instead?
      • Wouter: Why, do you want to move to that?
      • Seamus: Having volume structure problems.
      • Wouter: Qweak, does that and it causes many many problems.
      • Rates and luminosities tend to cause problems in the hard-coded method.
      • Wouter: Important to keep geometry separate so that it can be moved to other frameworks.
    • Upcoming simulation priorites
      • Lead wall thickness, pion detector geometry studies
      • Photo tracking in the pion detectors. Wouter will check on the status.
      • Port over the shielding to the main branch.
      • Ask Rakitha about which is the most recent shielding branch.
