The production of a particle with large invariant mass M and small transverse momentum qT in hadron-hadron collisions is described by transverse momentum dependent (TMD) factorization. The TMD formula is an asymptotic statement, correct in the limit of very small qT2 / M2. In practical cases, the corrections ~ qT2 / M2 may be sizable. A new paper computes for the first time the leading power corrections to particle production in gluon-gluon fusion.
Tim Michalski met with several of the ODU School of Engineering staff to discuss opportunities to engage students and faculty on the Jefferson Lab Electron-Ion Collider initiative and other engineering-related projects. Next steps are:
Chris Curtis will present a paper at the 33rd Annual Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC) in Snowbird, Utah, on aligning LCLS-II cryomodules. Ron Lassiter presented the NX Beamline Auto-Populate Journaling methodology at the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) conference held in May. The MSINST group resolved the leak issue with the instrumentation/fittings in the Accelerator-Hall C Dump. The EES RF and I&C groups are supporting general scheduled accelerator down preventive maintenance tasks. The DC Power group is upgrading the low-conductivity water modifications to box supplies and supporting Facilities Management and Logistics staff in south access main 1 and 2 ground fault testing. The EES Support group continues supporting the LCLS-II cavity and cryomodule testing in the Vertical Test Area and the Cryomodule Test Facility. The Safety System group completed certification of the Gun Test Stand. Preventative maintenance was completed to the injector and the Oxygen Deficiency Hazard system, and the group conducted general beam loss monitor maintenance.
