Agenda and Minutes

0. Actions from Last Meeting

  • Check with R. Bayes that this does not affect things in main CDB geometry - C. Heidt - Polished up geometry from C Hunt need to get files from Geoff. - New action GB and MU
  • Ensure central fibre is correctly defined in geometry and with Tracker group and correct if necessary - C Heidt
  • Issues found with NIM paper description of external waveguide end to end mapping check with Geoff and SW - MU
  • installation manual plan - GB MU

1. Software: AD, ES, CH

  • Schedule - AD (DA from now on)

1.1 Documentation - AD, ES, C. Heidt

1.2 Geometry, Calibrations, Configurations, CDB - C. Heidt

1.3 Monte Carlo

  • MC Noise - C. Heidt
  • ADC smearing needs fixing - C. Heidt

1.4 Pattern Recognition - AD

  • Low pt

1.5 Online Displays - MU Ongoing

1.6 Performance and Analysis

  • Emittance error - discrepancy by C. Hunt results and ES results (ES ~0.6%, CH ~ 0.8 - 1.5%)
  • Bias difference between trackers to be investigate - C. Hunt, ES
  • Spacepoint efficiency study - C. Heidt, AD
  • Low pt performance - AD
  • Efficiency and Purity figures for different beams and geometries

All ongoing

1.7 Issues

1.8 Tracker Software Paper - AD

Published as MICE note and will be referred to in MPB report

2. DAQ/Calibration/Controls - DA, EO, CmW

  • Tracker DAQ / electronics QA Update
  • Work plan going forwards

2.1 MiniDAQ - DA

2.2 Channel Mappings

2.3 Controls

2.4 Hall Probes - MU

We already have a working system but we will improve the SW and make it more user friendly.

3. LED: EO

  • Update on LED tests

4. Tracker lab - AB, GB, CM
Used and clean.

5. Installation

*Installation Manual - GB MU

  • Schedule
    • Current schedule at Integration Schedule - timetable still subject to change (constraints from AFC, etc)
    • Add resource loading? - CM
  • Exterenal Waveguides - MU
  • Cryostats - CM, AB, DA
    • Do we want to keep the cryostats cold afterwards?

6. Services in the MICE hall: CM

7. Step IV Analysis Readiness - MU

  • Tracker alignment - MU - ongoing
  • Step4 commissioning in progress.

8. Risks

8.1 Hardware

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

8.2 Software

  • Not yet able to test against multiple tracks per trigger with MC
  • Real data unpacking broken DA

8.3 Tracker Online Emergency Procedure - MU SB

  • Provide documentation for ISIS and eventually shifters in what to do in an emergency situation for the Tracker when running
    Documentation to Include:
    - schematics of the system
    - a list of associated checklists at power on, and who works through them.
    - a list of instructions to shifters on how to operate and monitor the system
    - emergency shutdown instructions
    - power-up instructions
    - trouble-shooting : what to watch for
    - a list of regular maintenance and safety checks

A lot of this is almost certainly going to be a work in progress, but it would be good to get it started. At the very least the emergency shutdown and power on instructions and checklist should be available by end of the year. We'll need a lot of this for the Jan 21st mock data run anyway.

  • First thing to do determine list of could fatally fails. - At face to face meeting in two weeks.

9. AoB and summary of actions.

9.1 AoB

9.2 Revised Actions
