Martin and Mike resolved a discrepancy in inner radius of the
support tube which is 195.95 mm.
Mike presented calculations of the harmonic content of a hybrid
quadrupole-dipole Q1 with trim coils. He calculated harmonics at
17 z locations, about the LEB axis at a radius of 10 mm. The
harmonics for the hybrid is better than for the offset Q1 by about
a factor of 2. (see transparencies for details)
Tom showed results of a Poisson calculation of fields from a
hybrid 8 sector Q1. Radial dimensions are from Mike. Asymmetry
in calculation has to do with Poisson meshing. Overall result is
encouraging with respect to block demagnetization. More detailed
calculations are to follow to quantify B component anti-parallel
to block magnetization.
Dave reported progress in background calculations. He has the
newly frozen LER lattice into turtle to generate lost particles.
The calculation starts outboard farther, midway in the arcs. He
assumes a vacuum of 1 nTorr inboard of 60 m and 10 nTorr outboard
of 60 m and nominal 2 amp on 1 amp currents. He modeled LER
collimators at 25 m (single jaw) and 49 m (two jaw). The HER has
single jaws at 10 and 32 m as before. He has turtle generated
rays as input to the detector simulation. Shielding between B1
and Q1 includes 0.75 inch of stainless steel to represent
supports, and 2 cm of W which he switches on/off (off = air). He
also switches on/off 2 cm of W around Q1. So far he has tallied
hits on the outer drift chamber layer. Switching on/off the 2 cm
W is about a 30% change in the total background rate, almost all
due to the change in the radiative Bhabba background. The 10
nTorr vacuum out board of 60 m is a significant contributor and
should be specified to some lower value. Next step is look at
other detector components such as the calorimeter.
Martin and Fred discussed space issues at the inboard end of B1.
It may be possible to shorten the first block in z by about 5 mm
and compensate with smaller inner radius. They will propose a
solution and check with Mike.
Martin is keeping a list of services which come out the support
tube ends.
