Run Plan 3rd - 7th October 2013

Commissioning run for the EMR detector.

Goals of the run:
The primary goal of the run is to commission the EMR, taking data necessary for calibration, ranging studies and PID studies.

MICE will aim to run for three weekends in a row. The desired studies are subdivided by weekend, but will shift to the next weekend if not completed. The initial plan is:

  • 2013/10/03 - 2013/10/07
    • Start Thursday lunch time (13:00), search MICE Hall and close.
    • Set trigger to TOF2.
    • Maximize beam rate; positive "pion" beam at 350 MeV/c or higher.
    • Maximum positive "muon" beam.
    • Attempt negative "pion" beam.
  • 2013/10/10 - 2013/10/14
    • Start Thursday lunch time (13:00), search MICE Hall and close.
    • Confirm trigger set to TOF2.
    • Repeat and/or correct any runs from previous weekend.
    • Positive Pion beam, start scan of momentum to cover momentum range where muons stop in the EMR, and higher.
  • 2013/10/17 - 2013/10/21
    • Start Thursday lunch time (13:00), search MICE Hall and close.
    • Confirm trigger set to TOF2.
    • Repeat and/or correct any runs from previous weekend.
    • Switch to negative polarity or muon beam, test additional presence of electrons.
    • Take as much electron data as possible.

Ruslan will serve as an extra shifter, to ensure he has the three shift credits required to serve as shift leader on the 13th and 14th.

(a) As Ryan is not a fully qualified lead shifter, Ian Taylor and Henry Nebrensky will provide cover as Lead Shifters on the 4th and 5th. Ian will attend from 08:00 - 14:00; Henry from 14:00 - 20:00.

Ryan Bayes will ensure that all shifters have an access card for R5.4, where the Target Vacuum Rack is stored, and that they are aware of the procedure for removing the target key, if instructed to do so by a BLOC.

We expect to be running with ?V beamloss and beam bump active. The Decay Solenoid will be off.

Further details to follow.
