The h mass measurement at mami

The h mass measurement at MAMI

  • The h production threshold measurement fromγp→pη.

  • The mass of h is calculated from relation:

    where mp is the proton mass, Egthr – production threshold.

  • Recently published measurements:

The tagging facility

The tagging facility

  • The energy Eg of the photon is determined (tagged) by:

  • Incoming MAMI electron beam energy E0 is known with an accuracy of sE0 = 68 keV.

  • Scattered electron energy Ee-is known with an accuracy of sEe- = 78 keV.

CB Meeting, Basel 10/5/06


Tagger microscope detector

Tagger microscope detector

  • An array of 96 plastic scintillator fibres (3 mm x 2 mm).

  • Each single fibre overlaps by 1/3 with its neighbor. The overlap region defines microscope detector channel μch(191 channels in total).

  • The energy resolution is 0.3 MeV per microscope channel μch.

  • Tagger microscope is positioned to cover electron energies 153 to 209 MeV. At a beam energy of 883 MeV this corresponds to tagged photons between 674 MeV and 730 MeV (η threshold ~707 MeV).

CB Meeting, Basel 10/5/06


Tagger microscope energy calibration

Tagger microscope energy calibration

  • Direct calibration:

    • Direct position measurement of the MAMI electron beam for the energies Ee- = 180.1 MeV, 195.2 MeV and 210.2 MeV using the same dipole magnetic field as in the experiment (Bcal = Bexp = 1.049 T).

  • Scan beam through microscope varying the dipole field:

    • Increase tagger dipole magnetic field Bcal in small steps.

    • Measure new electron beam position supposing equivalent electron beam energy for a given field setting Bcal :

Total energy measurement uncertainty

Total energy measurement uncertainty

  • Standard deviation of data points from fit:

    was calculated for

    each scan individually:

  • Average uncertainty: s= 0.27 mch = 78 keV (electron energy Ee-).

  • Add electron beam energy E0 determination uncertainty of MAMI 68 keV (s)

s(threshold) = 103 keV

s(mh) = 65 keV

Identification of h meson

Identification of h meson

  • h mesons are identified via their uncharged decay modes.

  • Events with 2 photons and 6 photons (with or without proton) are investigated.

  • Photons are identified with Crystal Ball/TAPS detector.

  • Particle identification detector serves as a veto for charged particles in CB.

  • TAPS crystals have individual veto detectors for marking charged particles.

  • h→2γ and h→3π0 decays are analyzed independently.

Identification of photons and protons

Identification of photons and protons

protons

  • Crystal Ball

    • Uncharged particles = photons.

    • Charged particles: ΔE(PID) vs. ECB: cut the proton.

  • TAPS forward wall

    • Vetos: charged particles.

    • Pulse shape analysis: cluster energy deposition in short Eshort vs. in long Elong integration interval.

    • Time of flight:

      ETAPS cl.vs.( tTAPS cl. – tCB photons ).

Microscope channel efficiency

Microscope channel efficiency

  • Investigate γp→pπ0with 2 photons and 1 proton final state using tagger.

  • Prompt - random time windows.

  • In microscope region (tagger channels 55-85) “pion yield” looks constant.

  • Investigate the same with microscope.

  • Microscope channels have different efficiencies!

  • Use “pion yield” distribution as microscope channels efficiency to correct the η yield!
