Impact of dead lar em calo cells on electron trigger efficiencies

Impact of Dead LAr EMCalo Cells on ElectronTrigger Efficiencies

Andrew Lowe

Royal Holloway, University of London


Introduction

Introduction

  • The effect of dead cells in the LAr EM Calorimeter on electron trigger selection efficiencies was studied

  • Dead cells = cells that are unresponsive

    • There are two parallel electronics readouts from the calorimeter

      • Part that creates the LVL1 Trigger Towers

      • Part which goes to the RODs for LVL2 and EF

    • Must ensure that the set of cells that are dead is the same at LVL1 and HLT

  • Expect that: dead cells  incorrect reconstruction of cluster energies  e/ objects fail to pass cuts  trigger selection efficiency decreases

Andrew Lowe, RHUL


Method 1

Method (1)

  • Source data: single electron || ≤ 2.5, with pile-up, no LAr or Tile calo noise, PT spectrum flat between 7-80 GeV, low-lumi (design-lumi to follow)

  • Reconstruction using offline release 8.0.2

    • LArDeadCellTools: suite of helper classes

      • Class containing info and status of cell

      • Container mapping compact identifiers to the previous class

      • Container mapping compact identifiers to compact identifiers

    • Randomly kill cells and store information in StoreGate

    • AlgTool “LArCellKiller” zeros cell energies at LVL1 and HLT (two instances of this tool, one for LVL1, one for HLT)

      • MakeCorrection(LArCell*) method invoked for each cell every event

      • Retrieves containers and do a look-up to see if cell is supposed to be dead

      • Same list used at LVL1 and HLT  same cells dead at LVL1 and HLT

  • HLT performance analysed using TrigEgammaAnalysis package

Andrew Lowe, RHUL


Method 2

Method (2)

  • Dead cells are assumed to be uniformly distributed in LAr EM calorimeter

  • 0, 0.1, 0.2, 1.0 percent dead cells simulated

    • This reflects estimates of dead cells that may be expected

    • More data to come

  • No smart corrections (to correctly reconstruct energy) applied to account for dead cells

  • All samplings treated equally

  • ~10000 events per sample

  • Configuration of dead cells changes every event

    • Avoids bias from “lucky/unlucky” distributions of dead cells

  • Examine e25i trigger efficiencies as a function of the percentage of dead cells

Andrew Lowe, RHUL


E framework

e/ Framework

  • There is a non-trivial discrepancy between the efficiencies that the TrigEgammaAnalysis package calculates and those that are published in the HLT TDR and elsewhere – expect ~80% efficiency wrt LVL1, but get ~76%

  • Small increase (< 1%) in efficiency if events that have a track found by xKalman and not by IDScan are skipped, instead of calculating a “fudge-factor” to normalise the efficiencies, to account for events with tracks missed by IDScan

    • This is something that was done before, but appears to have never appeared in a publicly-accessible version of the Framework

  • Discrepancy can only be accounted for if the undocumented TRT cuts buried inside EFIDCalo are switched off

    • Manuel Diaz Gomez confirmed that these cuts were switched off when he generated the efficiencies for use in the TDR, because the TRT reconstruction was not performant

  • Running my own version of the Framework with my own tweaks and modifications, but cuts are unchanged from those in the main branch

Results 2

Results (2)

  • Expect that the efficiencies will not be identical because of changes in the reconstruction from 6.0.4 to 8.0.2

  • Note that data with LAr and Tile calo noise was used, so efficiencies will be slightly lower than those I obtain with noise switched off

Andrew Lowe, RHUL


Results 3

Results (3)

  • Electron selection efficiency, wrt LVL1 at EFIDCalo, vs. MC PT for 0% dead cells

Andrew Lowe, RHUL


Results 4

Results (4)

  • Mean efficiency (calculated using a fit to data between 30-80 GeV), wrt LVL1 at EFIDCalo, vs. percentage of dead cells

  • Observe systematic decrease in electron selection efficiency

Andrew Lowe, RHUL


Results 5

Results (5)

  • Decrease in electron selection efficiency: 1% dead cells (a realistic upper-limit) results in:

    • 1.3 ± 0.3% drop in average electron selection total efficiency

    • 1.2 ± 0.3% drop in average electron selection efficiency wrt LVL1

  • Trend is linear, as can be seen in plot

Future work

Future Work

  • Process data for 0.5% and 2.0% dead cells

  • Process data for 0% – 2.0% dead FEBs

    • Expect interesting results because a FEB instruments a region of contiguous cells in a sampling

  • Repeat study with design-lumi data, but first:

  • Repeat study using physics samples to study impact on Higgs channels for a number of Higgs masses

    • H  ZZ(*)  4e

    • H  ZZ(*)  2e2µ
