2012 detector start up

2012 Detector start-up

RPC system is ON since a week, how it is working ?

Hardware status

Hardware status

  • At the moment we have 11 Chambers OFF, same number of 2011

  • One new single gap chamber in the barrel.

  • 3.5% of dead and masked channels

Noise results from mwgr

Noise results from MWGR

  • Run 185984 (last night, long run): ~1.0% masked channels, ~1.3% dead channels

  • 18 chambers off (5 in the barrel, 13 in the endcap)

  • Average noise ~3 Hz/cm2 (barrel), ~0.3 Hz/cm2 (endcap)

2012 open issues and organization

2012 – Open Issues and organization

  • Deputy DPG

    • Karol confirmed, Silvia Costantini (Ghent) new

  • PVT group

    • Marcello Abbrescia is the new coordinator

  • Task force

    • Efficiency method validation

    • HV scan

    • Bakelite production

    • Gas leak studies

Upgrade summary report

Upgrade Summary Report

  • First batch of Bakelite sheets, produced and tested in Pavia, washed at General Tecnica, is now in Korea

  • Most of the sheets show a dirty surface and cannot be used to produce gaps – Second batch will be followed step by step by our experts (March)

  • 3 Test sites are almost ready

  • New link and control boards have been successfully tested at 904 and installed in the Barrel – We will keep them running

  • Database work is proceeding very well, thanks to Anton, Daniela and new Pakistan experts.
