physics coordinator report

  • Step I papers:-
    • (Polarisation analysis - held up by dodgy EMR code)
  • Cooling demo paper:
    • Secondary absorber did not present sufficient material to the beamline to
      shield the tracker, review of secondary absorber position which has caused
      delay to the paper.
    • Tried for a revision last week for review, it didn't work out, hope to have a
      revision by this week
  • Step IV papers:
  • Rogers is re-establishing selection/weighting algorithms (dead since 2007)
    • aim to drive an analysis of "physics block challenge" before MPB
    • feed into review of data rate issues, etc.
  • Field mapping
    • Blackmore/Cobb have a good analysis of the field axis in the FC, which does not
      produce the "tails" ruining the fitting, hopeful that SS will follow in time
      for alignment beginning of April
  • March/April running
    • Rogers will be physics shifter on March 21st
    • Trying to establish physics shifters on March 28th and following
  • June running
    • Planning note in preparation, due Friday
    • Discuss/finalise note at a meeting Thursday 19th
    • Tracker will not be able to get plan in time for the meeting, rogers to phone Melissa
    • EMR request one week data and additionally some cosmics
    • C+M request one week
    • TOF request calibration (1 or 2 shifts)
    • KL request cosmic data taking
    • Ckov request 1 shift
    • Beamline (hardware) request an activation run
    • Beamline (optics) not sure
    • Cooling channel first data may at some point come through, not sure
