Link back to agenda


  1. Identify key decisions that must be made (and justified) prior to CD-1,
  2. Make progress on (or actually make) those decisions,
  3. Lay out a timeline and process for making each decision, consistent with the post-decision work and internal reviews that will be needed to complete preparations for CD-1,
  4. Ensure that those timelines and processes are understood and supported by the collaboration, and that we (together) believe we can follow them.

Agenda (2 hours total)

  1. (15 min) Detector/ optical coupling state of the field. Technology update (Toki S.)
  2. (15 min) Update from Detector Task Force and Detector Fabrication Review (Brad B.)
  3. (30 min) Understanding requirement flow down - How did we come up with decadal detector configuration? (Clarence C., Vicor B, )
  4. (30 min) Key decision items - number of detector types, optical coupling (Kent I.)
  5. (15 min) R&D plan: Current state of the plan, discussion on readout “interface” issues: resources, testing (Brenna)
