Standing Actions from previous meetings

  • ACTION: Improving TRACKER Geometry description - fibres outside fiducial region (Heidt)
    • STANDS
  • ACTION: Victoria Blackmore to implement magnet field map interface (Victoria)
    • STANDS
  • ACTION: Ruslan to provide relation between survey points and centre (?) first EMR plane
    • STANDS
  • ACTION: RYAN to provide interface to fit for best detector positions, given survey points, to place all volumes.
    • DONE - Needs detector responsible sign off on relation between survey nests and detector
  • ACTION: Ryan to udpate MAUS USER GUIDE
    • IN PROGRESS
  • ACTION: Ryan to investigate how to reduce geometry load-time
    • IN PROGRESS - Provisional success for geometries without overlapping volumes.
  • ACTION: PRY plates to be incorporated in TOF1, TOF2 shielding for STEP IV (JASON). This replaces the TOF cages which should not be used.
    • STANDS (additional shielding may be needed for TOF1)

Notes

  • Ryan wrote translation algorithm to avoid manipulation. This is a script which takes Jason files, divided by material definition, and groups them in position-derived modules. Code in MAUS that translates Jason files to files to be used by GDML parser. Ready
  • Problem of placing magnetic field wrt to magnet material: problem of bridging the gap between the magnetic field maps coordinate system and hall coordinate system; problem of setting it up in an automatic way to avoid human intervention.
  • Problem of alignment and geometry: shall we have a new geometry for each alignment configuration? Probably not. Problem to be discussed at the CM. Two options: system that allows to manipulate files on the fly on the command line; geometry in CDB.
  • Priority: get new geometry with GDML parser implementation to work. Still problem with sensitive detectors (Mice modules used for those)
  • New survey coordinates: rotation + translation in z. It should not affect software once incorporated into the CAD. Need to check with Jason.
  • TOF1 geometry. Changes in the orientation of the places. First upstream plane is now horizontal. Still to be implemented software.
