Low energy pions in CTB
Laboratory measurements: (PMT/Fibres response stability)
(M. Canneri, V. Cavasinni, F. Sarri, I. Vivarelli)
CTB set up for VLE
Our aim: obtain the purest pion sample from VLE data.
The VLE beam is made of electrons, pions and muons
(μat the same η of the run and off axis).
Electrons are easy to separate.
ALL sub-detector are exploited for the muon selection

We have measured in our lab the gain, QE, noise etc of 24 PMT (the same used in TileCal), illuminated with continuous light simulating LHC at L=1034 cm-2s-1.
Led light yield monitored by two photodiodes.
Surprisingly the gain of all PMT increased with time at a rate ofabout 0.5-0.7 % per month.
No instrumental effect was found. Moreover the precise Cs calibration in different CTB periods confirms the effect also quantitatively.
In 2007 we will follow up this effect.

SUMMARY ATLFAST 30 fb-1
Validation with full simulation started
COMPARISON ON ETMISS AND NUMBER OF JETS
red : full AODs, black fast AODs.
The H1 method : jet energy is the sum of weighted cell energy.
QCD 2 jets events has been used to compute weights using “topoclusters” and cone algorithm (R=0.7).
The method/weights prooved to be good also for calibrating jets with different cones (R=0.4) and different samples (t-tbar) and seems to work well also for CTB data.
This algorithm is robust and stable and is implemented in ATHENA.
Similar good results using the same weghts obtained with
a Cone0.4, ttbar events, and CTB data
We use the RPC in order to try to understand the fake by MDT on electron
events (many events have more than 13 hits in MDT).
They could be muons that are outside Tile calorimeter acceptance.
Zone of inefficiency for muons by Tile
Only the bottom half
of the RPC (negative y)
is working in the runs

Electrons are easily identified by beam Cerenkov.
Muons can be identified using L or by MDT etc.

-New parametrization for tau-ID (with the Toronto Group)
red : full AODs, black fast AODs.
Same weights applied also to the ttbar events, Rome sample
The same weights (determined in QCD MC events) work well for different cone definitions, for different samples and also (preliminary) on Combined Test Beam data. This method seems more robust than the “standard” ATLAS jet calibration

At each step, the PMT current is measured.
Then the wheel is positioned in the different locations for more precise measurements.
The precision in the ratio Fibra1/Fibra2 is about 6 10-4 sistematics under study
Stato delle spese ad oggi:
ME: assegnato 109 k€ speso ad oggi 55K€ (51%)
manca ancora il contributo tecnici per
commissioning (7 mu)
E’ richiesta la presenza continua al CERN di Vivarelli e Dotti. Questo non e’ compatibile col finanziamento attuale.
Abbiamo richiesto una integrazione di 6 mu per arrivare a fine anno.
A new, friendly, DAQ system was built using a CAEN Brigde (V1792) which interface VME to a PC where the DAQ system runs through ROOT.
A student (Marco Raglianti) from the Computer Science Department has designed this nice and simple system as part of his “tesi di tirocinio”.
The Bridge has become a powerful development system. C++ programs can be fully tested, in ROOT, and then compiled and run on single board PC in VME.
What is missing are VME units (ADC etc.): we use old CAMAC units that we have interfaced to VME. Often these units are faulty...
