Log Book

BDSIM Development (fixes and improvements)

  • branched from develop v0.7-rc (release candidate)
  • offsets
  • histogram bug
  • fix overlapping volumes
  • cleaner bds acc. comp. base class
  • sbend vacuum bug
  • pybdsim/Root for root histo to matplotlib


  • working ATF2 model for v.5.2
  • detailed aperture list, more or less everything is 12 mm (radius)
  • set strengths automatically from set file
  • set offsets automatically from data file
  • separate strength file
  • access Sampler class in robdsim/pybdsim
  • provide wrapper for plotting root histograms in matplotlib
  • beampipethickness
  • correct materials and geomtry for OTR, YAG
  • energy cut / particle cut for cherenkov detector ~ 1-2MeV
  • add reference cavity as drift
  • OTR screen info: a four set of new targets is installed, two of them made with 2 Ám aluminum and two with a 3 to 5 Ám Kapton with a 0.12 Ám Aluminum coating. Both materials are doing well with the current beam parameters. p.53 http://digital.csic.es/bitstream/10261/90424/1/457258.pdf
geometry improvements (in order of perceived importance):
  • cbpms - Scad/STL model done, needs to be imported to BDSIM
  • flanges (as drift)
  • quad outermagnet geometry (coils): 2 versions: tokin (FF), EXT model? (EXT)
  • tapered collimator
  • plates before quads (as drifts)
  • detector geometry, see ATF2BDSIMDetectors
  • halo distribution
  • beam gas distribution
