  1. ANTI-2 Test Beam Paolo Valente on behalf of the LAV team

  2. Test beam objectives • Validate final version of front-end electronics plus modifications of voltage divider: • Time-over-threshold vs. charge calibration curves • Efficiency vs. threshold for electrons, hadrons and muons • Test new FEE with TELL1 readout All that on a full, final ANTI ring, and thus also checking: • construction techniques • cabling and connectors • new DB37 signal flanges • new ground feed-through on HV flange

  3. Test beam setup

  4. Signal and HV flanges Read half of the channels: - 16 out of 32 channels for each of the 5 layers (5/10 DB37 connectors) HV supplied to all 160 ch’s (Luckily the gain equalization done in Frascati was fine and we had not to change the HV settings)

  5. Readout map Side B Side A (powered, but not read-out) Channel 10 Channel 1 (17, 33, 49, 65)

  6. Readout configurations We have used three different configurations: • Phase 1: readout by 5 FE boards as in 2009 test: • 5×16 input ch’s Threshold  5×16 out LVDS  TDC • 5×16 input ch’s5×16 analog out  delays  QDC • Phase 2: insert prototype of final FE board: • 8 input ch’s2 Thresholds  2×8 out LVDS  TDC • 8 input ch’s 2 Analogue 4-fold sum  delays  QDC • Phase 3: back to old FE boards • efficiency studies • final FE prototype connected to TELL1 for readout tests

  7. Setup (1) “front” Trigger: • 2 scintillators(cross) in “front” of the ANTI-2, defining a 6×6 cm2 area (AND) • 1 scintillatoron the “back” • generally NOT used as veto, but only for checking longitudinal containment “back”

  8. Setup (2) 2 beam Cerenkov counters (TDC & QDC): • Operated at two different pressures to have, in a given momentum range: • Cerenkov A: threshold between e and m • Cerenkov B: threshold between m and p

  9. Setup (3) Wire chamber Trigger scintillators Beam scintillator Focus at wire chamber + 2m Beam Cerenkov

  12. TDC hit-map # of hits channel #

  13. Preliminary results: time-over-threshold calibration

  14. Charge vs. ToT QDC (pC) ToT (ns) Run 627, Threshold=4 mV Run 638, Threshold=8 mV

  15. Charge vs. ToT QDC (pC) ToT (ns) Run 627, Threshold=4 mV Run 638, Threshold=8 mV Threshold not changed (broken test point)

  16. Charge vs. ToT Run 178

  17. An effect due to geometry?... 28 11 27 43 59 58 25 41 57

  18. …or the usual jump due to threshold crossing?

  19. New FE board 8 channels × thresholds: Channel 10, 11 Channel 26, 27 Channel 41, 42 Channel 58 Channel 74 Analog sum 1 Analog sum 2

  20. QDC (pC) Old FE board QDC is fed with individual channel analog signal (channel 41) Run 178 New FE board QDC is fed with 4-fold analog sum (channels 41+42+58+74) In final configuration, this will be the sum of the four crystals in one “banana” ToT (ns) Run 202

  21. Total charge with ToT vs. QDC 0.3 GeV run 4th order polynomial parametrizationof charge vs. ToT curve Compare charge from QDC with charge from ToT

  22. Preliminary results: muon efficiency

  23. Muon selection Scintillator 2 (pC) Scintillator 2 (pC) Scintillator 1 (pC) Scintillator 1 (pC) + ask for hit crystal in previous and following layer + isolation cut (allowed only additional hit in the nearby crystal)

  24. FE threshold Threshold = 8 mV Efficiency Make the ratio, Fit the threshold profile Charge (pC) Charge (pC) Black: all events Red: with TDC hit Profiting of the only muon runs… (Lau configuration: 8 GeV hadrons + beam stopper, fully open collimators)

  25. Threshold calibration From known threshold, extract mVpC conversion Threshold (pC) Threshold (mV)

  26. Muon efficiency Efficiency Muon runs Layer 5 Layer 4 Layer 3 Layer 2 Layer 1 Threshold (mV)

  27. Muon efficiency vs. threshold Efficiency Muon runs … but a lot of work is needed in order to have a better understanding of data, Just one example: what is the effect of the mis-tagging of the scintillators trigger? Monte Carlo (K. Massri) Layer 1 data Threshold (pC)

  28. Muon efficiency vs. threshold Efficiency Muon runs … moreover, the horizontal scale depends on the photo-electron to pC conversion factor (and thus on the exact gain) Monte Carlo (K. Massri) Layer 2 data Threshold (pC)

  29. Considerations on efficiency studies We should consider that this will not be the way photons will hit our veto stations

  30. Comparison with Monte Carlo Fraction of energy in veto station (E0=0.5 GeV) vs. azimuthal and polar angles (and projections) D. Di Filippo

  31. We have tried to perform an horizontal scan (+10 cm, +20 cm towards the center of the ring) by moving our trigger scintillators, in order to check the impact of the lateral “cracks”. Since we did not move the ANTI-2, one should take into account also the angle. Analysis is ongoing…

  32. Preliminary results: electron selection

  33. Cerenkov counters Cerenkov 2 (pC) Cerenkov 1 (pC)

  34. Electron selection 0.5 GeV 1 GeV Run 663 Run 656 Total Energy (pC) All Scintillators Scintillators + Cerenkov

  35. Electron selection 3.5 GeV 2 GeV Run 548 Run 647 Total Energy (pC) All Scintillators Scintillators + Cerenkov

  36. New FE + TELL1 test • 4 crystals on layer 1 and 4 crystals on layer 2 on opposite hemisphere with respect to beam impact point (only muon halo events) • fed to new FE board • readout by TDCB on TELL1

  37. To do list • To do: • Data quality: • Selection of good runs, check all channels, hardware changes, etc. • Time resolution • Electron efficiency vs. energy: • In order to do this, we have to improve on the tagging of the incoming particle, e.g. we can ask for a deposit in the crystal in the first • Linearity, containment vs. impact point, etc.

  38. Conclusions • All in all, the ANTI-2 test was positive from the point of view of: • Signal and HV flanges modifications • New FE board functionality (both for ToT discriminator and for analog sum circuit) • Basic test of FE board/TELL1 + TDC board matching • We collected a lot of useful data (still to be analyzed…): • We had runs at 0.3, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 GeV (with steeply decreasing fraction of electrons/muons+pions) and also dedicated purely muons runs • We have performed threshold scans and a threshold vs. energy calibration, demonstrating that in a good noise (grounding) situation we can work at a fraction of MIP (1/3 maybe even 1/4)
