Attendees: Josh, Vlad B., Susan S., Liping G., Sascha S., S.T.

  • Vlad B. has been working on a light yield test stand in the Hall C NPS lab/cleanroom
    • Evaluated 460 SICCAS crystals, rejected almost 50 that passed visual inspection
    • Using weak uCi Na22 source -- Sascha ordered 10 uCi source
    • Plan is to measure 10-20 crystal's light yield along length using linear translation stand (~$300)
    • Plan is to evaluate all new crystals as they come to lab in November, compare with Shanghai Ceramic Institute's light yield numbers
    • Part of multi-level crystal evaluation scheme (crystal size, visual inspection, transmittance, light yield with and without light guide...)

  • 12 crystal test setup for use in hall after pair spectrometer is under construction
  • Light guide material, cookie material still need to be finalized
