Sorry, I was unable to call into the meeting, but please note that 
Juliette's student
Sakib is also working on detector simulations. To my knowledge, he is 
the only one
who is working on implementing the entire integrating detector geometry 
possibility of varying the parameters for each quartz piece separately.

We also still need a simulation study of the full background (from the 
full geometry
including any Pb) in the detector region. This is the most important 
step in finding
out whether or not the air-core light guide reference design is viable 
at this point.

Connected to that, we need a systematic study of what backgrounds / 
we are willing/able to live with before making any further decision 
about detector
