The expression of intention was signed in Krabi/Thailand during the PANDA Collaboration Meeting on March 11, 2019. Pictures are from the Signing Cermony among the three group leaders Chinorat Kobdaj (SUT), Keerati Manasatitpong (SLRI), and Sakhorn Rimjaem (CMU) of the Thailand groups involved and Klaus Peters as spokesperson of PANDA.
At ICTP-SAIFR a joint workshop of Brazilian Scientists and representatives from PANDA and the PANDA TAG took place from Feb 25-March 1, 2019 with a focus on PANDA related physics and technology providing close contact with PANDA science, development and construction.
The meeting was well attended (about 60 registrants) and PANDA was represented by Tassos Belias, Kai Brinkmann, Tord Johannsson, Klaus Peters, Tobias Stockmanns and Ulrich Wiedner (who was also co-organizer) as well as our theory colleagues Christian Fischer and Evgeni Eppelbaum.
we completed a very successful testbeam time at COSY on Sunday, February 24th, 2019. Spokespersons for the beamtime were Greg Korcyl and Rafal Lalik from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. Following detectors were set up in the beamline with a total length of about 8 m (Photo: P.Wintz, FZ Jülich GmbH, beam enters from the right):
We had a proton beam of 2.5 GeV/c momentum (almost minimum ionising) and varied intensities and beam profiles for the FT tests.
Many thanks to the COSY crew for the quick beam set up and stable operation, so that we could exploit 10 days of beam time (7 requested). I was told that all six groups were very pleased with the beamtime, although spending both sunny Julich weekends in the cave.
