Note Friday reference will be used to try to debug the TOF Gain issue (See wiki minutes). We will want to

  • do some sanity checks
  • change HV by 20% on selected channels and check the effect

Durga will be there to manage this.

Reference runs.

Please do a reference run using the settings in the table above as close as possible to the start of each shift

Beamline pre-commissioning activities

Beamline pre-commissioning (search for setting for commissioning of downstream detectors without B field)

  • The main goal of these activities is to find setting to improve particle rate in downstream detectors in the absence of B field from SC solenoids.
  1. The trigger needs to be set at TOF1 (we need tracks recorded in TOF0, TOF1 and TOF2).
  2. We aim to measure rate in downstream detectors using TOF2
  3. We need 10000 analysable muons in TOF1 for phase space reconstruction.

Please do each run in units of 1000 pulses each You will need to manually stop and start the run at 1000 pulses. For 5000 pulses we need 5 runs of 1000 pulses each.

*The beam line will be now set to the new setting based on (6, 200), but with different setting in Q4-Q7.

Finish

  • Shutdown target and re-open Hall for Monday

Notes

*It is possible that people working in Rack Room 2 on the tracker will request a controlled access to the Hall.
If this is done the standard procedure (in a checklist) must be followed.

*There will be no offline reconstruction between 4pm and 12am on Saturday afternoon/evening. This is not a problem
for the shifters.
