SECTOR 5 LIST
|PROJECT||NEXT MILESTONE||DEADLINE||PREVIOUS MILESTONE|
|B4||Final implementation of b4
Update May 16: Beta version is running. All features now included. Processing results in GUI. Waiting for NE-CAT personnel to send RAPD program.
|April 28, 2017||All functionality implemented and tested Jan-Mar 2017. Available for users.|
|Vortex||Update March 20: Integrated into b3/b4, with excitation scans enabled.
Next step: label peaks in excitation scans.
|April 28, 2017||Integrated into b3/b4, with excitation scans enabled, and realtime control of deadtime. Available for users.|
|Beamline characterization||Develop tools for automatic COR detection
Next step: make available for users.
|May 17, 2017||Positions for Alignment jigs and VersaPins (position Z1) installed into robot dewars on 501 and 502. Robot mount/unmount tested and script for finding COR tested. Available for staff.|
|Investigate ways to make the robot faster
Update May 8: Testing of stationary collimator (in up position) completed.
|May 17, 2017||Investigation on 501 shows that clearance okay for collimator to remain in place during mount/unmount.|
Next step: testing of the automatic rastering (to determine crystal location in loop). Feature is available in b4, but not thoroughly tested yet.
|May 27, 2017||Automatic loop centering finished and available in b4. Next step: automatic rastering to located crystal in loop.|
|Expanding features||RadDose based on DBS signal|
COMPLETED SECTOR 5 ITEMS
|Gonio improvement||New snout||July 7, 2016||New snout ordered in May, arrived on June 13. Tested on June 13. Turned out to be slightly longer than old one, so adjusted gonio and robot accordingly.|
