Notes from biweekly meetings


To do list

  • Add dual timer configuration to plateau page (X)
  • Continue to fine tune operating point of NaI detector and upload plateaus/signal:noise plots
    • Overhauled analysis code throughout the week of 6/1/21 to calculate all rates, uncertainties, background subtractions, and signal to noise ratios. Code now generates 3 plots with all errors included -> I need to create a code repository (could use github)
  • NaI attenuation measurements (with BorAl and try different types of poly (unborated, lavender, green))
  • Begin experimental setup in clean room (X)
  • Test HPGe detector -> Work has begun on this by a colleague
  • Complete latest assigned training module (X)
  • Speak to Roy Dunker who has agreed to let us use a second HPGe detector for back-to-back measurements in later phase of feasibility studies at ISU (X)
  • Move painted lead bricks to clean room (X)
  • Linked manual for HPGe detector to wiki pages (X)
  • Rerun 1000V source in plateau data, looks like a discontinuity in the data set starting at the 150mV threshold. Could be my mistake, need to verify. (X)
    • Verified that there is a 3x drop in Hz between 135mV-155mV threshold level at 1000V. Unsure what could cause this
  • Finish 1100V source out data collection (X)
