Participants: Elton, Beni, ELke, Christina, Matt. Mihajlo, John, Zisis, Andrei, George

  1. BCAL
    • Report on the visit to Alberta Media:UofAMeeting080429.pdf; increased role of Alberta; scheduling on the CNC machine
    • Fiber specs: Elton update the specs on the DocDB ([1]) with all comments he received. It can be sent on to procurement to prepare for a bid package. Regina findings in connection to the manufacturer's claim of fiber spectral response and no of photons produced per MeV were discussed. A NIM article is in preparation.
    • Fiber Testing: new parallel setup at JLab, absolute light output measurement, to accommodate SiPM in one line and fibers in the other.
  2. FCAL: see link above to presentation for the collaboration meeting. We need VXS compatibility.
  3. Calibration and Monitoring (see link above).
  4. Collaboration Meeting Preparations
    • FCAL: 25 min; see above (Mihajlo will present); will go after Calibration and before BCAL.
    • BCAL: two sessions totaling 40 min each; Elton will contact Curtis to change agenda and use Electronics time for the calorimetry section. Carl will need 30 min, and Calorimetry Review final report discussion (30 min).
    • Calibration: 10 min plus a summary slide of detector requirements. We will start with Calibration.
    • Monte Carlo: Zisis will contact David and present standalone BCAL stuff during the Thu afternoon session.
  5. Other business: Fall collaboration meeting dates should be fixed at next week's meeting.
