Cafe neutrino meeting minutes (11/11/2010)
Present: C. Hansen, G. Prior, E. Wildner, V. Palladino, F. Dufour, E. Benedetto
- General News and Discussions
- Round Table
NUFACT11 Will (most probably) be held at CERN and Geneva Univ. (1-6 Aug).
Impressions from NUFACT10:
Beta Beam was very little representative, should be improved for NUFACT11.
Neutrino Factory; some new ideas from FFG, MICE started data taking, the low energy part
for the pion productin energy seems not modelled good in programs like MARS and
also some models in G4 compare to HARP measurements. Now "solved" by reweighting
some G4 models to the HARP data (P. Soler).
Gersends paper to test the MICE cavities in a Magnet at CERN:
Want to submit it soon. Requests for people should be done to the PH division.
Just contemplating who to submit it to and in what form.
Hopefully get beam time for next year.
From Fanny Dufour,
Doing regular analysis from T2K.
Mostly understanding how the software work for the Inner Detector of ND280.
Need to understand what systematic errors to add. A numu dissapearence study
will be published by the T2K collaboration after xmas. Might give us a talk
25th of Nov.
From Elena Benedetto,
Just back from Osaka, Japan, with discussion on how to use their FFAG to make
the worlds first Ionisation Cooling experiment (deuterium beam and lithium target).
First need to be checked if deuterium could be put in their FFAG.
From Elena Wildner,
Summarized WG3 in NUFACT10.
For the 8B cross section experiment in Legnaro have to search for 3He.
Will be CERN representative if this experiment is done. Writing minutes
for the WG4 meeting at Legnaro. Will start a Green Field compain for the Beta Beams.
Will revise the injection scheam for the DR with the CEA (Paris).
From Gersende Prior,
Finishing the front end section for the RDR (for IDS and EUROnu). Collecting all chapters.
Will have a neutrino factory costing workshop end of January.
From Vittorio Palladino,
Reporting time for NUCAR. Writing report for NEUTRINO2012.
From Christian Hansen,
Mainly finishing the NUFACT10 proceeding papers for Merging simulation and Collective Effect presentations
(tricky since maximum pages decreased from 5 to 3 from NUFACT09).
From Thierry Stora (via email),
There has been a workshop where we were discussing the option to receive the storage ring of MPI Heidelberg at ISOLDE,
and we are investigating if its suitability for neutrino physics.
There is a proposal to INTC (scientific committee for beam time at ISOLDE) to test
under protons some molten salts targets (proposed for 18Ne production).
25th November 9am - next cafe-neutrino meeting (room tbc).
