Inefficiencyat a rate R (measured in GHz) isobtained from the dead-time formula R*= R(1 -δeff R*) A reliableerror estimate isneeded Furtheranalysisisneeded of the samples with largerleverarm: L1-L4**Summary**# Inefficiency of physicalchannels due to CARIOCA dead time ismeasured from countingrates in terms of an effectiveδeff # preliminaryresults indicate that : 1) The averageδeffis of the order of 50ns 2)δeffissignificantlydifferent for differentregions/readouts. Itishigher in R1 (and for cathodesishigherthan for wires) – Assuming an averageδcarseems to be a crude approximation (optimistic for the innerregion) 3) From the δeff, the (larger) CARIOCA dead time (δcar) isevaluatedwith a toy MC makingsimpleassumptions on itsvariance and on the bi-gap time response. 4) Whengoingat 40 MHz BCR, wewillhave a (larger) inefficiencywellapproximated by a δeff≈δcar – 12.5 ns The inefficiency of R1 cathodesisvery high. At the high ratesforeseen for future, itseemsthatinefficiencywill be too high to work with the END of wires and cathodes # With the muon FE counters, carefullmeasurementswouldallow to monitor relative luminosities with very high precision
