FDC Weekly Meeting

Participants: Daniel, Brian
Next Meeting: Wednesday, September 6, 2006 @ 1:30 p.m.
Cosmic Ray Chambers
Simon has checked the cosmic chamber signals now that alcohol has been added. Things look much better now. Several chambers are being read out and a crude calibration is in place. More work will be done when Simon gets back from vacation.
Comparison of chamber resolution with stretched cathodes shows no change from before (i.e. compared to the old wrinkled planes).
Brian showed his first mechanical drawing. Not much to talk about as drawing was 0th order. Brian will continue to work on this.
- Brian suggested that we discuss the FDC budget for next year at our next FDC meeting. We can then decide what we want to purchase. - DSC will send Brian the R&D budget numbers after the meeting.
Circuit Board Design
DSC reviewed with Brian details from the meeting on 8/28/06 with Chris Cuevas and Elton regarding who will work on the FDC circuit board design.
We agreed that it is time to start to perform the load calculations for the frames supporting the wires.
Minutes prepared by Daniel. Send any comments or corrections along.
