what is being reviewed
What is Being Reviewed
  • NSF – How long to continue to operate?
    • 1 or 2 more years
    • Option 1 means using last year of operations funding for D&D
  • Us – General review of technique
    • Includes view of our accomplishments
    • View of our future
      • 1-2 more years of Milagro ops
      • miniHAWC startup

    • 9am ~1 hour at LANL
      • Overview of physics and timeline of review
      • Overview of operations
    • Site visit and lunch (4 hours including travel)
    • 2pm Resume talks at LANL
  • June 19
    • Talks on future
    • Wrap-up

milagro talks
Milagro Talks
  • Geared on physics
    • Answer the questions
      • What are our capabilities?
      • What have we done to date
      • What do we lose if we turn Milagro off?
      • What do we gain with 2 more years of operations
    • Talks must be concise and to the point
      • 20 minutes is all you get and expect to be interrupted often

milagro talks1
Milagro Talks
  • Overview and outline of review
  • Operations including daq system and data pipelining/online processing and analysis
  • Techniques talks
    • Background rejection: X2, AX4, pChi
      • Importance of outriggers (AX4)
      • High S/B data set (35%!!)
    • Energy Spectra
      • Convince them we can do it!
      • Based on distribution of signal in X2 space
      • If available – based on outriggers and event-by-event measurement
