Agenda and Notes

1. Operations Status and Summary/Review (Bickley)

Low energy setup with reduced heating accomplished. RF is not a limitation at this energy (SS). More intelligent way of doing heat control? T. Powers to address his summary 4 weeks from now! Interaction with cryo folks re-initiated? Krafft to contact Creel.

2. Plasma Processing (Powers)

Plasma processing project gaining traction. Kurt Macha has designed two carts needed to in situ clean. All equipment ordered, here, buil;t up by Oct. 1. Test cavity is identified and being put together. first tests in CMTF. Visited FERMI; use HOM filters to excite plasma. Use two RF sources at two frequencies to excite various modes. SNS plus mass flow measurement.

Tests  [1] Do no harm

[2] clean up dirty cavity [3] take and improve cavities from "dirty" cryomodule [4] P1 dissassembly check

Goal to have regular maintenance activity plan by end of year.
