Experiment Plan

Estimated first beam: 16.00.

  1. Set up mains cabling and networking in treatment and control rooms.
  2. Install Peli case and Giraffe on treatment couch:
    1. Set up 2 x 2.86mm stacks for shoot through measurement of range pullback at ~245MeV (no DAQ needed).
    2. Align Peli case and Giraffe using in-room lasers.
    3.  Measure range pullback of combined stack, each individual stack and empty case.
  3. Set up Peli case for range pullback measurement of single block:
