In conjunction with a having a key associated with your account, to have the possibility of exporting private event information necessitates the creation of a persistent key. This new key is also associated with your account and whilst it is active the data which can be obtained through using this key can be obtained by anyone in possession of the link provided. Due to this reason, it is extremely important that you keep links generated with this key private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately remove it from 'My Profile' under the 'HTTP API' tab and generate a new key before regenerating iCalendar links.

SIST and GEM 2016: Final Talkschaired by Elliott McCrory (Fermilab), Sandra Charles (Fermilab)
Tuesday, August 16, 2016 from to (US/Central)
at Fermilab ( Curia II )
at Fermilab ( Curia II )
Wilson Hall, second floor, SW corner
The final talks for the 2016 programs of the Summer Internships in Science and Technology (SIST, http://sist.fnal.gov) and the National Consortium for Graduate Degrees for Minorities in Engineering and Sciences (GEM, http://www.gemfellowship.org/). Supervisors of the interns are strongly encouraged to attend at least their intern's talk, and hopefully one or two more.
|Participants||gustavo cancelo; Sandra Charles; William Freeman; Elliott McCrory; Vivian O'Dell; David Peterson; Mayling Wong-Squires|
Go to day
If you need to test your talk on the local computer, or if you want to have some coffee and bagels, Elliott will be there at 0800 for these things.
Welcome and Introduction
Please be in place by 8:55 AM for the beginning of the session. Ms. Charles and I will have a few words to say about the day.
Speaker: Dr. Elliott McCrory (Fermilab)
Preliminary Results from CONNIE-100 Science Array.
Supervisor: Juan Estrada CONNIE-100 currently sits 30 meters from a 3.8 GW nuclear reactor in Angra, Brazil with the expectation of detecting coherent-elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering. To do this, there must be a solid understanding of the background radiation. This article presents some of the first results of the experiment regarding background radiation rates.

SRF LINAC Simulation
Supervisors: Mohamed Hassan and Paolo Berrutti Simulating the acceleration of protons traveling through the field of a superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavity to determine the number of cavities required for acceleration is quite complex. This paper describes a simplified model based on the actual PIP – II linac design. It does not take into account transverse RF field and particle dynamics. This means that only the component of the field along the axis of propagation of the particle is considered in the simulation. The simulation describes the exchange of energy between the cavity fields and a single particle as it passes through the cavities. I wrote a program to perform a numerical integration on the cavity field to determine the NTTF curve which shows the energy gained by the particle for any particular β. The number of cavities for acceleration is calculated from the relationship between the Kinetic energy of the beam and the NTTF curve. Even though transverse RF fields are not considered, the result of the simulation is within a reasonable range of the real number of cavities used for the acceleration.

From Test Stand to M-Test: The Detector Design Process
Supervisor: Mandy Rominsky This summer I worked for 12 weeks at Fermilab Test Beam Facility (FTBF) under the supervision of Mandy Rominsky. I was presented with two main tasks for the summer. Firstly, I built and tested a cosmic ray stand with various electronics, instrumentation, and software components. Secondly, I aided in the installation and development of MIDAS, a data acquisition system that will include the monitoring and data records for every aspect of the test beam facility�s MTEST beam.

NOvA Medium Energy Target Assembly
Supervisors: Chris Kelly and Bob Zwaska This presentation will aim to give insight into the NOvA. It will explain the distinction between NOvA and NuMI and explain how NuMI's target and horn system operates. It will also explain in detail the assembly and design process of NuMI medium energy targets.

A Tale of Two Uncertainties: Analyzing PT Bias and its Effects on the Dimuon Mass Spectrum
Supervisor: Pushpa Bhat When taking cosmic or collision data, it is important to evaluate the uncertainty associated with the detector's measurements. My project investigated the potential bias in the CMS when taking transverse momentum, or pT, measurements and examined how this bias would propagate into uncertainty in the dimuon invariant mass spectrum.

Investigation of Emittance Analysis Methods Using the MuCool Test Area Beamline
Supervisor: Carol Johnstone Emittance is an important metric in beamline physics that helps us to predict and analyze the beam's behavior and properties. Using the MuCool Test Area beamline, we are able to diagnose this parameter with the use of multiwire profile monitors. The emittance is typically defined as the area of the elliptic envelope of particles in phase space; however it is suspected that when subjected to nonlinearities, this shape is no longer elliptical. This analysis aimed to investigate this resulting shape as well as explore methodologies for doing so and determine limitations of certain models.

Diamond Detector: Measuring Beam Intensity
Supervisor: Caron Johnstone and Adam Watts There are several ways of measuring beam intensity. One of those ways is through the use of an instrumentation device called a Diamond Detector. With the purpose of looking for a replacement for the current method in measuring beam intensity, which involves using SEMs, the Diamond Detector offers a less expensive and more effective way of measuring beam intensity, and perhaps the ability to measure the microbunch structure of the beam because of the fast time-of-flight measurement capabilities that the Diamond Detector has.
