Outline

Outline

  • The LHC and ATLAS detector.

  • ATLAS calorimeter system.

  • Trigger system and Level 2 Trigger RoI.

  • Commissioning phase with cosmics.

  • The visualization tool.

  • Some problems found by this tool.

  • Conclusion and To-Do list.


The lhc and atlas detector

The LHC and ATLAS Detector

  • LHC - it is being finished at CERN.

  • ATLAS - high granularity, TBytes/sec of data.

  • Trigger system – to save only relevant events.

Eletromagnetic Calorimeter

Hadronic Calorimeter

Muon Chambers

Inner Detector


Atlas calorimeter system

ATLAS Calorimeter System

Electromagnetic - LArg

Inner detector

Electromagnetic Calorimeter

  • Liquid argon as detection medium.

  • Charged particles generate eletromagnetic showers.

  • Electric field captures free electrons → signal pulse.

Hadronic - TileCal

  • Scintillating tiles.

  • Iron to absorv the energy.

  • Energetic hadrons interact with the tiles → light generation.

  • Photomultipliers transform the light in a electrical signal.

Hadronic Calorimeter


Calorimeter segmentation

Electromagnetic

  • 64 Modules in φcoordinate.

  • Two readout channels by cell.

  • 10,000 readout channels.

  • Three layers.

  • 100,000 readout channels.

  • Four layers.

Commissioning with cosmic muons

Commissioning with cosmic muons

Trigger tower

  • Use of a standalone coincidence board.

  • Bypass the Trigger System.

  • Back-to-back coincidence – projective events.

  • Use TileCal Trigger Towers.

  • Commissioning of the calorimeters with real data.

The visualization tool motivation

The Visualization Tool - Motivation

  • Three-dimensional event visualization of the Calorimeter cells.

  • Tool used in the commissioning phase.

  • Simple and intuitive way to look for potential problems.

  • Easy connection with reconstructed data (ROOT).

  • Two versions:

    • Hadron Calorimeter specific.

    • Combined Eletromagnetic/Hadron Calorimeters.

  • Analysis examples:

    • Track visualization for cosmics – real data.

    • Level 2 Trigger RoI debug - simulated data.

Conclusion to do list

Conclusion & To do list

  • Easy way to go through the events and check for problems.

  • Needs only Root (v5.14.00).

  • Easy to run and to modify.

  • No need to recompile.

  • It has helped commissioning phase with cosmic.

  • Some bugs in the L2 Trigger algorithms has been found with this tool.

  • Next steps: Include LArg EndCap and Inner Detector.
