pT spectra vs best-fit function

Average pT vs ylab

YBeam=6.5 for SPS

YBeam=8.92 for7 TeV LHC

ylab = ybeam - y

1. Thermodynamics (Hagedron, Riv. NuovoCim. 6:10, 1 (1983))

  • Systematic uncertainty of LHCf data is 5%.

  • Compared with the UA7 data (√s=630GeV) and MC simulations (QGSJET, SIBYLL, EPOS).

  • Two experimental data mostly appear to lie along a common curve→ no evident dependence of <pT> on ECMS.

  • Smallest dependence on ECMS is found in EPOS and it is consistent with LHCf and UA7.

  • Large ECMS dependence is found in SIBYLL

2. Numerical integration

actually up to the upper bound of histogram

The status of the upgrades
The status of the upgrades

  • Arm1 and Arm2 are currently dismounted in Florence

  • Calorimeter radiation hardening by replacing plastic scintillator with GSO is in progress

  • Production and laboratory tests of the new scintillators in Japan is finished both for Arm1 and Arm2

  • Beam test at Ion facility (HIMAC) has been done in August 2013

  • Upgrade of the silicon positioning measurement system under way

    • Rearranging Silicon layers for independent precise energy measurement

    • Increase the dynamic range to reduce saturation effects

    • New silicon hybrids and Kaptons are ready

    • The assembly of new silicon modules is starting

  • Test Beam at LNS for the absolute energy calibration of the silicon system has been assigned for 2014

  • Summer 2014: assembly of Arm1 and Arm2 in Florence

  • Test beam at SPS in Autumn 2014

    Silicon calibration program at lns
    Silicon Calibration program at LNS

    • Aim of the test

      • Absolute energy calibration of one silicon module by measuring the output signal vs deposited energy

      • Relative energy calibration of all PACE3 chips (96) for all the eight silicon modules

      • Scan one module at different X-Y positions to check for systematic effects

    • To calibrate the silicon response we need to use different species of highly penetrating ions, allowing to span the whole energy range measurable with the PACE3 chips

    • To select the ions that show a constant energy loss whilst traversing the module we have set-up a simulation of the silicon detector module using the SRIM package

    1 absolute energy calibration
    1. Absolute energy calibration

    • One module is centered on the beam spot and a scan with different energies/sources is done to cover the whole dynamic range from ~ 5-10% to 120% of PACE3 chip (10K events per point)

    • Beam energies/source are a compromise between the need to cover the full range and the availability and feasibility of the test at the LNS facilities

      • Only gaseous sources have been selected and only two different energies

    2. Relative calibration of each PACE3 chip

    • A position scan (X-scan) through the 12 PACE3 x 8 modules should be done with an ion beam able to give ~ 0.2-0.3 PACE3 saturation (12C 45MeV/A or 13C 62 MeV/A or 14N 62 MeV/A are equivalent)

    • Clearly the pulse height in the region of new configuration was reduced by a factor of 1.5 ~ 1.7 (we could naively expect 2)

    How accelerator experiments can contribute to vhecr
    How accelerator experiments can contribute to VHECR?

    ① Inelastic cross section

    If larges: rapid development

    If small s: deep penetrating

    ④ secondary interactions

    nucleon, p

    ② Forward energy spectrum

    If softer shallow development

    If harder deep penetrating

    Inelasticity k=1-Elead/Eavail

    If large k (p0s carry more energy)

    rapid development

    If small k (baryons carry more energy)

    deep penetrating
