Matthieu Hentz, Simon Jolly, Saad Shaikh, Ohie Mayenin


  • Learning basics of Autodesk Inventor.
  • Rebuilt some CAD models from Jordan Silverman.
  • Next steps:
    • SJ will arrange account on plus1.
    • SJ has emailed latest CAD files for model.
    • Open model and create Inventor project.
    • Check model for consistency; create git repository.


  • Overhauling Dan Walker's code: improving data storage and smoothing data handling.
  • Can reproduce spectra.
  • Experimental setup is ready for testing.
  • Next steps:
    • Use ROOT file explorer to load in multiple files using ROOT boost class.
    • Pile-up filtering needs improving: look into using ROOT machine learning capabilities.
    • Iron out bugs with Eclipse...
    • Contact Tony Price once he's back from holiday to arrange experimental visit.


  • Working on proton CT reconstruction:
    • Possible to combine multiple projections manually.
    • Questions about necessary proton flux.
