Last update: Sunday 09-26-2010

Absolute best-case scenario:

  • Monday 09-27-2010: DAY shift
    • start cooling magnets
  • Monday 09-27-2010: SWING (or late-Day)
    • lockup
    • hot checkout (MCC)
    • start threading beam to the Hall
  • Tuesday 09-28-2010: OWL
    • start commissioning


Beam without any cryo and no target

We will start with a 5 passes beam.

  1. Getting beam threaded down to the dump for the first time
  2. Beam quality optimization study

Goal: optimize beam quality to limit noise in calorimeter

Need: working Compton photon detector with appropriate HV and threshold settings, working Compton DAQ that can provide scaler data to the appropriate EPICS channel (contact: Eric Fuchey for Compton, Jay, MCC support for beam manipulation)

  1. BCM calibration

Goal: calibrate BCM readings between 0 and 20 uA, with special care to readings between 2 and 7 uA
Need: to follow MCC procedure (MCC-PR-04-008), Hall DAQ working with some random counts (check conditions) Contact: J. Roche

  1. BPM calibration

Goal: check response of the BPMs to know motion of the beam Need: Harps working
