While the problem we had before with the (electron) gun was resolved, the linac (another key component) starting malfunctioning. We will have to see until tomorrow what can be done. The good news are that he laser we have to use is now reaching the target, which means 2 out of the 3 components are in good shape. Meanwhile I have been doing some matlab simulations here and there.
We drove around Brookhaven today in a 10mi radius, and there is absolutely nothing to do. We keep having with Patrick these Brookhaven jokes now: It is the anti-particle of New York, 8th wonder of the world, why do they have fridges, home sweet home when we back into the house, even the couch is so uncomfortable so that you only work and never lie down etc.
