21st February 2018: Birmingham

  • First tests of fast treatment plan verification setup at Birmingham cyclotron.
  • Measurements at 28 MeV with data taken by Birmingham PRaVDA tracker module and UCL single module calorimeter.
  • Calorimeter data recorded from PMT waveforms by LeCroy scope.
  • Dan Walker, Simon Jolly, Anastasia Basharina-Freshville and Laurent Kelleter present.

Measurements of 2 and 3 mm scintillator sheets

  • Nuvia a.s. provided 2 mm and 3 mm PS scintillator sheets for the range calorimeter.
  • These sheets were all measured on arrival.
  • The sheets were then spray-painted black and remeasured.
