Ild time stamping

ILD Time-stamping

At last meeting proposed:

  • Ideally routinely overlay 110 BXs or 60 BXs if not feasible

    • driven by W HCAL timing

  • Physics event at BX number 10

    • allow for main calorimeter contributions from previous BXs

  • Calorimeter time resolution of 1 ns with 20 ns multi-hit separation

  • Silicon detectors integrate over 10 ns

    • assumes starting time of integration is “physics hit” – occupancy ?

  • TPC track reconstruction for full 110 BX

    • tracks selected based on timing in other detectors (Si hits)

  • PFO Selection (needs study, just first estimate)

    • photons – require cluster time(< 1 ns ?)

    • neutral hadrons – require cluster time(< 5 ns ?)

    • tracks with cluster – require in time cluster (<5 ns ?)

      • need to account for helical track time to reach calorimeter

    • tracks with no associated cluster –(reject ?)

Mark Thomson


Ild time stamping status

ILD Time-stamping Status

  • Implemented the above proposal

  • Can now routinely reconstruct events with 60 BXs overlay

    • required slicing TPC in two parts, +ve, -vez

    • approx 5 min/event (LEPTracking, FullLDCTracking, Pandora)

    • 110 BXs feasible, but may require further slicing

  • Implemented Calorimeter 20 ns multi-hit separation

  • Decided not to smear calorimeter times with resolution of 1 ns

  • New issue related to CLIC time structure

    • For looping tracks, i.e. low pT and low pZtrack takes finite time to

    • endcap Calorimeter

    • Hence may have thrown away associated calorimeter hits

    • Decided to reject all tracks which take more than 20 ns to

    • propagate to ECAL

  • Implemented track timing cuts

    • new processsor – CLICTrackSelector

    • cuts on SI hits + propagation time

    • doesn’t (yet) use times of TPC tracks crossing TPC endplate

    • keep tracks from V0s

Mark Thomson


Pfo selection

PFO Selection

  • Plan to make cuts on reconstructed PFOs using calorimeter timing

    • reduce out-of-time background

    • believe ~factor 5 reduction is possible

  • e.g. PFO Selection (needs study, just first estimate)

    • photons – require cluster time < 1 ns

    • neutral hadrons – require cluster time < 5 ns

    • tracks with cluster – require in time cluster (<5 ns)

      • need to account for helical track time to reach calorimeter

    • tracks with no associated cluster – reject ?

  • pTand p cuts left to individual analyses

  • Following plots show cluster time (energy weighted mean) vs PFO pT

    • for PFOs from 91 GeV Z->uds events (colours)

    • and gamma gamma -> hadrons background (points)

    • broken down into PFO type (photon, neutral, charged)

Timing spread due to

Neutrals in barrel e

Neutrals in Barrel (E)

  • For clusters with ECAL energy > 0.5 GeV use ECAL hits only for cluster time

Mark Thomson


Neutrals in endcap

Neutrals in Endcap

  • One of main sources of background – dominated by PFOs made from

  • hits from multiple particles (one reason why full overlay is necessary) !

Background peaks

Around 5ns, i.e. half of

the 10ns window

Charged in endcap

Charged in Endcap

  • One of main sources of background – for tracks with small pT, background

  • is very large

Need to look at p not just

pT, e.g. only apply timing

cuts to tracks with p<5 GeV

Mark Thomson


Where now

Where Now ?

Cluster Timing Cuts

  • Prototype Algorithm in Pandora

  • Need to look at background in terms of p and pT

    • only apply additional PFO timing cuts to background dominated

    • region

    • needs some cut tuning

ILD Reconstruction Path

  • Need to commit changes

  • Converge on ILD steering file
