L.C.Bland, for AnDY

15 February 2011

Time Meeting, BNL


Jet trigger commissioned on saturday 12 february

Jet Trigger Commissionedon Saturday 12 February

  • ADC from Berkeley group (“QT”) has FPGA used to form 17-bit sum of 12-bit ADC from each of 32 channels

  • 32-bit data from four QT per HCal module transferred to second FPGA board from Berkeley (DSM), where 19-bit sum of four terms is made

  • Threshold on 19-bit sum is then used as trigger

  • HCal energy scale still to be determined

Jet trigger events

Jet Trigger Events

  • Select from jet-trigger events for HCal “high-tower” to be centered in module

  • Display for each detector of each module the ADC count as color scale (black=greatest count yellow=lowest count)

  • Events look “jetty”, as expected


Issues and plans for next access possibility and beyond

Issues and Plansfor next access possibility and beyond

  • Resolve a few remaining single-channel issues

  • Reduce HCal gain

  • We are in “production” now with a jet trigger >29M jet events recorded since Sunday.

  • No significant on luminosity at IP6,8 yet

  • Following access, in coming week…

  • ECal final calibration

  • Commission additional triggers

  • Equipment in place:

  • HCal is two existing 9x12 modules from E864 (NIM406,227)

  • ECal are two small lead-glass modules from BigCal at JLab

  • BBC (from PHOBOS) and ZDC

  • Preshower is newly constructed scintillator arrays

  • Goals:

  • Establish impact of 3IR operation on PHENIX/STAR luminosity

  • Calibrate HCal

    • relative gain via cosmic-ray m

    • absolute energy scale via r,L,KS…

  • Measure hadronic backgrounds to benchmark simulations

  • Measure jet analyzing power (Lint~10 / pb, P=50%)
