Trickle injection background l.jpg
Trickle-injection background

Veto windows

  • The background generated by the trickle injection is concentrated in a narrow time window corresponding to revolutions of the injected bunch.

  • BABAR vetoes this window during data taking to avoid high dead time

  • BABAR rejects a larger region at the analysis phase to guarantee good data quality.

  • The total loss is around 1.5%

Background sources in p e p ii l.jpg
Background sources in PEP-II

  • Synchrotron radiation (this bkg negligible in PEP-II, but not in KEKB)

  • Beam-gas (bremsstrahlung + Coulomb)

    • HEB only: BHbg ~ IH * (pH0 + PHDyn * IH) Note: p0 = f(T) !

    • LEB only: BLbg ~ IL * (pL0 + PLDyn * IL) Note: p0 = f(T) !

    • beam-gas x- term: BLHbg ~ cLH * IL * IH (LEB+HEB, out of collision) (?)

  • Luminosity (radiative-Bhabha debris) – major concern as L 

    • BP ~ dP * L (strictly linear with L)

  • Beam-beam tails

    • from LER tails: BL, bb ~ IL * fL(xL,H+/-)

    • from HER tails: BH, bb ~ IH * fH(xL,H+/-)

  • Trickle background: BLi ,BHi(injected-beam quality/orbit + beam-beam)

  • Touschek: BLT(signature somewhat similar to bremsstrahlung; so far small)

Background characterization measurements l.jpg

Data: Jan 04 (bef. therrmal outgassing crisis)

Background characterization measurements

Step 1: Beam-current scans

 single-beam terms

Slide9 l.jpg

  • Beam-beam term

  • present in all subdetectors

  • fluctuations, short - & long-term

  •  parametrization optimistic ?

Step 2: L & beam-beam terms

EMC cluster multiplicity

Step 3: Background Parametrizations

  • DCH example: total current & occupancies

    Step 4: Background Extrapolations

  • elm shower debris

  • neutrons!

    • no contribution from coasting HEB or LEB

    • maydominate DCH, DIRC rate

Neutron background l.jpg
Neutron Background outgassing crisis)

Effort underway to measure neutron background in BaBar

BF3 counter installed on fwd Q4

Sees large rate (>10 kHz) during colliding beams, not single beam

Rate only seen with polyethylene moderator~1MeV neutrons

Neutrons thought to be from radiative Bhabhas hitting Q2 septum mask

and inside support tube

- Shielding of BaBar is being investigated

Dch trg l.jpg
DCH + TRG outgassing crisis)

When combined with higher trigger rates, long read-out time leads to unacceptable deadtime.

A major DCH elx upgrade is now in progress.

Slide14 l.jpg

Backward: outgassing crisis)





Background strongly - dependent

By 2007 predict 80% occupancy right in MID-plane

In layer 1, 10% will be above 20% occupancy











Integrated dose will be more than 1 Mrad/year by 2007


Background now is ~75% HEB [LEB negligible (!)]

In 2007, it will be 50% HER, 50% L

  • It has recently been realized that

    • in the SVT (but not in other subdetectors), a large fraction of the “Luminosity”background is most likely due to a HER-LER beam-gas X-term (but: similar extrap’ltn).

    • the HER single-beam background in run 4 is about 2x what it was in 2002  improve?

Slide15 l.jpg

Outgassing storms outgassing crisis)

  • New (?) major background source: thermally-enhanced beam-gas

    • in incoming LER straight (exacerbated by NEG activation; OK for now)

      • sensitive to LER current; several time constants in a time-dependent mix

      • suspect: NEGs (MS’s talk), ion pumps, collimator jaws, misc. vac. pipe secs

      •  SVT dose + occupancy (E-MID); minor impact on dead time

    • in incoming HER straight (triggered the NEG activation; OK for now)

      • sensitive to HER current, very long time constants

      •  BaBar dead time + SVT occupancy (W-MID)

    • in (or very close to) the shared IR vacuum system

      • sensitive to both beam currents; at least 2 time constants

      • suspect: NEG + complicated IR ‘cavity’ (Q2L  Q2R) + HOM interference

      •  BaBar dead time + SVT occupancy (W-MID + E-MID)

  • HOM dominant heating mechanism

    • mostly long to very long time constants (30’-3 h): suggests low power

    • sensitive to: bunch pattern, VRF, collimator settings, Z(IP), hidden var’s

  • Many “??”(minor, inocuous changes  large effects, good or bad)

Time evolution of the thermal outgassing background

  • The different time dependences of the pressure readings allowed to fit the background sensor (Backward East diamond) as a linear combination of 4 LER gauges, on a fill by fill basis

  • The sensitivity coefficients for each gauge were then extracted. They represent the N2-equivalent pressure integral with the same time dependence as the gauge reading.

The background problem was not related to a Pressure increase (as indicated by the gauge readings) but to a huge increase in background sensitivy

Background simulations outgassing crisis)

Background is coming from:

HER & LER beam-gas, luminosity, and beam-beam tails

Important to understand/quantify these backgrounds

What will be the effect of the IR upgrade on beam-gas (& b-b) bgds?

Can the luminosity background be explained by radiative Bhabhas ?

Which way does it enter the detector ? What is the n spectrum?

Can we shield or reduce this background source ?

Can we mitigate beam-beam backgrounds with improved collimation ?

Substantial effort in reviving/updating simulation infrastructure! Status:

Turtle optics updated to 2003 HER beam line (LER in progress)

Description of masks & apertures under detailed review (bugs found)

Beam line up to Q5 (mostly) implemented in Geant4 simulation of BaBar detector –validation of geometry & magnetic tracking in progress

post-2005 configuration is awaiting a finalized IRdesign

Significantly more detailed simulation

compared to the old Geant3 simulation used until 2000

Where do scattered e-hit?

  • G4 simulation: status outgassing crisis)

  • Simulation integrated inside the BaBar standard Geant-4 environment.

  • magnets added in the region from backward-Q5 to forward-Q5

  • background sensors (PIN diodes, diamonds, quartz & CsI) added & validated

  • beamline elements from -Q5 to +Q5 included

  • validation of magnetic field description (incl. Q1-Q5) in progress

Decision made to import beamline elements from CAD files 

tools written to allow automatic translation from Solid Edge files to G4 C++

Correction of some G4 geometry ‘features’ (!)

Main steps

Retrieval of CAD files: HER OK, LER downstream Q4-Q5 not yet available

Simplification & translation of CAD files to C++ source: done on all available parts

Debugging of geometry problems : done up to Q2s

Slide22 l.jpg

Ongoing Background Simulation Studies outgassing crisis)


  • Single beam background comes from Coulomb scattering and bremsstrahlung

  • Study relative contributions at various locations at the IP and where in the ring the original scattering happens

    So far only studied at Turtle level: HER (2003), LER (1998)

    Radiative Bhabha background

  • Where does the electrons/positrons end up after scattering?

  • What kind of backgrounds are produced and can it be shielded?

  • How much neutron radiation is generated? What is the neutron spectrum?

  • Will the 2005 IR upgrade make it worse?

    This simulation effort is just starting up.

    Beam-beam collimation

  • Beam-beam background can be reduced with collimators

  • LER collimator usage limited by background in IFR end cap

  • Can the collimators be moved downstream of BaBar?

    First results look encouraging!

    • CsI background sensors , n detectors & shielding [JV, Slac Exptl Grp B]

Summary i l.jpg
Summary (I) outgassing crisis)

  • Stable-beam (genuine) radiation aborts are down to < 1/day

  • Trickle injection

    • is a major success in terms of improving

      • machine stability + abort frequency  integrated L

      • overall injection quality

      • accumulated SVT dose

    • The associated detector backgrounds appear largely negligible (most – but not all – of the time)

  • Present stored-beam bgds (dose rate, data quality, dead time)

    • OK most of the time (& better w/ trickle)- for now (thermal outgassing!)

  • Background characterization experiments

    • were highly valuable in identifying the origin, magnitude & impact of single- & two-beam backgrounds.

    • On the long term, the dominant backgrounds are expected to be, in order of decreasing importance:

      • radiative-Bhabha debris (all subdetectors), incl. a significant neutron flux

      • HER beam-gas (SVT, TRG), especially if thermal outgassing resurfaces

      • beam-beam tails & their fluctuations (DCH, EMC, TRG, IFR  wall!)

Summary ii l.jpg
Summary (II) outgassing crisis)

  • In the medium term (2005-07), the main vulnerabilities are

    • beam-gas backgrounds from HOM-related thermal outgassing as I+,-

    • high dead time associated with DCH data volume & trigger rates (addressed by DCH elx upgrade)

    • high occupancy and radiation ageing in the mid-plane of the SVT,

      • possibly leading to a local loss of tracking coverage.

      •  reduce the HER single-beam background back to 2002 levels (/1.5-2) ?

    • a high flux of ~ 1 MeV neutrons in the DCH (wire aging from large pulses, possibly also contributions to occupancy)

  • Background simulations

    • large investment in reviving/updating tools + rebuilding the group

    • ‘almost’ ready to evaluate backgrounds in IR upgrade

    • manpower limited

  • BaBar-based accelerator performance enhancement

    • common BaBar-PEPII diagnostics greatly improved, starting to pay off

    • very significant involvement of BaBarians in beam instrumentation & simulation

  • difficult for 1 operator to “keep all balls in the air”

Stable beam aborts remediation avenues l.jpg
Stable-beam aborts: 3/23/04)remediation avenues

  • Need better understanding/characterization

    • 40-50% of the radiation aborts were found to be sympathetic... by manually scanning logs

    • 60% of the ‘radiation-only’ aborts may be sympathetic as well

    • < # ‘radiation-only’ aborts > ~ 1/day  2-3 % inefficiency (counting all, and adding manual aborts for trapped events)

    •  can we learn to use the radiation signature to diagnose the source?

    •  can we automate the categorization of aborts?

      • easier (automated?) identification/logging of T/L instabilities

      • data entry

  • Improved diagnostics: SVTRAD 1.5 elx upgrade coming soon

  • now (Jan 2004) ~ 1.6 x Feb 2002 (@ 1 A)

    • mostly linear with IH dominated by base pressure (thermal outg’sg)

    • dynamic pressure term (~ SR  IH2) unchanged since Feb 2002 - no plausible improvement (short of $$)

  • radial ion pumps repair: regain ~ 20% ?

    • requires removing support tube ( > July 2005)

  • high-vacuum (TSP) section (PR02 7039 to 7042)

    • TSP’s flashed on 5 + 27 Jan ’04 – no detectable improvement in pressure (p0 ~ 5E-10)

  • There may be some to gain from more frequent NEG activation

    • at best, will return to Feb 2002 levels, but not for long

    • # NEG cycles is finite  NEG activation expensive

Fill March 28, 12pm-3 pm

  • The different time dependences of the pressure readings allowed to fit the background sensor (Bacward East diamond) as a linear combination of 4 Pumps*LER, on a fill by fill basis

  • The 4 pumps are located on the incoming LER straight and all exhibit HOM related thermal outgassing (eg, change of pressure associated with change of bunch length)

  • A very satisfactory description of the background was thus obtained in all cases

  • The sensitivity coefficients for each pump were then extracted. They represent the N2-equivalent pressure integral with the same time dependence as the pump reading.

  • The coefficients are normalised to their pre-NEG activation values , indicated by the red line (1 point per long fill)

  • The background problem was not related to a Pressure increase (as indicated by the pump readings) but to a huge increase in background sensitivy

  • The problem was solved by:

    • -continued processing

    • Collimator jaw opening

    • Change in bunch pattern

      These changes has different actions on the various background drivers

SR simulations

(an intrinsic part of the new-IR design)

  • Beam-gas simulations

  • ring: Turtle

  • IR  Geant4


Lattice mods? (dynamic aperture)

  • 2 themes...

    • validate IR upgrade design

      • make sure that what we install in ’05 does not suffer from built-in flaws...

      • least for those processes we can calculate (SR, beam-gas)

    • understand / improve backgrounds in present machine

  • ...that are intimately intertwined

    • validation requires credibility

      • update “old” simulations to incorporate what we learnt

      • simulations of present machine/detector configuration better get the ‘right’ answer (when confronted with measurements)...

      • ...if we want to believe predictions for the upgraded IR

    • improve those backgrounds we canNOT calculate

      • both for today’s and for tomorrow’s sake!

Architecture of background simulations 1 l.jpg
Architecture of background simulations (1) outgassing related background

  • Synchrotron Radiation

    • MAGBENDS / QSRAD: stand-alone programs

    • SR background calculations: an intrinsic component of IR re-design

    • shouldn’t these be interfaced to GEANT?

  • Beam-gas

    • step 1: LP-TURTLE transports particles around 1 ring turn

      • full model of ring optics (treated as transport line)

      • start with ‘nominal’ beam at IP

      • beam-gas scattering randomly around ring (bremsstrahlung or Coulomb scattering)  transport ‘secondaries’ (e’, g)

      • simplified model of IR apertures (simple geometry, no showering!)

      • those particles lost ‘near’ the IP are

        • saved @ scoring plane

        • input to step 2

    • step 2: full GEANT simulation of detector + near-IR (+- 8.5 m)

      • see Mario Bondioli’s talk

Architecture of background simulations 2 l.jpg
Architecture of background simulations (2) outgassing related background

  • Beam-beam

    • full simulation of beam-beam tails impractical

    • focus on collimation studies

      • optimize collimator placement/relocation (SM)

      • understand main characteristics of collimator secondaries (HB)

      • provide guidance for machine experiments

    • use Turtle machinery

  • Strategy considerations

    • improve/update description of magnetic fields & apertures (TF, GC)

    • many fundamental features easier to understand at Turtle level

      •  first round of IR-upgrade design validation will be done this way (RB)

    • GEANT-level simulation essential (MB, GB, GC)

      • to benchmark computations against data

      • to make sure there are no “alligators” hiding in new design

    • absolute background predictions always suspect

      • even when benchmarked against experiments. However...

      • ...ratios (new design /present machine) much more reliable.

Belle backgrounds l.jpg
Belle Backgrounds comparing “

During the Super-B workshop (Hawaii, Jan 04) background experiences were compared between Belle and BaBar

Belle Backgrounds:

Stable beam backgrounds generally lower than at BaBar

SVT and DCH backgrounds well described by single beam background or even lower (Touschek effect)

TOF (+50%) and Muon (x5) see a “luminosity” background

Injection backgrounds did not seem to be a concern

Comparing Backgrounds:

Quantitative background comparison is not simple due to difference between the two detectors

Currently a common set of “background measures” are being defined and should be available in the Summer
