Agenda and Minutes

0. Actions

  • Asymmetric results between trackers: Kalman to extrapolate back to tracker reference surface - C. Hunt, ES
  • Create MICE note of channel mappings end-to-end through hardware, electronics and software - DA
  • DAQ and controls requirements for schedule - DA MU asked DA, he is working on it this week
  • Create comparison plots for channel mapping data - CH

1. Software: AD, ES, CH, ST

1.1 Documentation - AD, ES, CH

  • Base documentation - AD
  • Digitisation - CH, ES
  • Pattern Recognition - AD
  • Track fit - ES
  • MC - CH
  • Geometry, CDB - CH
  • Noise - CH

1.2 Geometry, Calibrations, Configurations, CDB - CH

  • Helium windows not in geometry - CH
  • Get CMM geometry data in to CDB - CH
  • Translate CDB geometry xml into MiceModules format Now able to pull down from CDB but still crashing when try to run sim with it - AD, CH

1.3 Monte Carlo

  • MC Noise - CH
    • Look at large cpu load
  • ADC smearing needs fixing - CH

1.4 Pattern Recognition - AD

  • Find a way increasing error for low pt tracks and implement

1.5 Online Displays - MU

1.6 Performance

  • Spacepoint efficiency study - CH, AD
  • Bias difference between trackers to be investigate - C. Hunt, ES 99% solved, need to get Kalman to extrapolate back to tracker reference surface
  • Low pt performance - AD
  • Recon emittance vs MC truth emittance study - C. Hunt
  • Spacepoint efficiency study - C. Hunt

1.7 Issues

  • Final track fit - ES
    • Deal with -ve charge
  • Are the latest bug fixes (trackpoint z position missing, etc) in the trunk?

2. DAQ/Calibration/Controls - DA, EO

  • DA to give his requirements for the Hall and the tracker lab, in particular with respect to the Integration Schedule (MU to email)

2.1 MiniDAQ - DA

2.2 Channel Mappings

  • Check our channel mapping from end to end and make sure correct - DA, AD, ES, CH
  • Dig up the old documentation for the electronics channel mapping - DA

2.3 Controls

  • Create controls system - DA

2.4 Hall Probes - MU

3. LED: EO

  • Finished second pulser box - CM
  • Polish fibre ends - CM
  • Make documentation mapping LEDs to areas of tracker illuminated - EO
  • Provide documnetation to Maurizio about whether it would be helpful to fit LED into TOF to help our timing - EO

4. Tracker lab - AB, GB, CM

  • Set up cryostat test system - CM

From CM:

Looking to get final decision on servicing. It will be all 4 cold heads and either 2 or 4 of the compressors. This will be 23-25K + vat.
I will run each system separately in the tracker lab before this to make sure everything else ok before engineer visit.
I'm looking forward to making some progress on organising the little lab next week.

5. Installation

  • Integration Schedule
    • Current schedule at Integration Schedule - timetable still subject to change (constraints from AFC, etc)
    • Add resource loading? - CM
  • Finish installation manual - GB, MU Done, stick final version on wiki
  • External waveguides
    • New waveguides - GB Will use FermiLab fibres, to be polished at FermiLab
    • Need to QA the external waveguides using Wariwck T2K equipment - MU

Due to conflicts with AFC running and other issues, installation of T2 in SS is now expected in last week of June week or first week of July - MU

Work going on to survey solenoid bore with ISIS people - GB

6. Services in the MICE hall: CM

7. Step IV Analysis Readiness - MU

  • Tracker alignment - MU

8. Risks

  • Daresbury electronics: vacuum, tracker interlocks
  • Reforming external waveguides (could lead to breakage)
  • Leak from cryostat cassettes
  • Northside PRY (not us, but knock effect to us)

9. AoB and summary of actions.
