simulation status
Simulation Status
  • No major changes recently to the code, focus on experimental descriptions.
  • Yordan is working on a model of the CKOV mirror.
  • Kenny is implementing the IC and FNAL beam monitors.
  • Adam is checking the positions and orientation of the beam line elements (now that we have the survey information).

M. Ellis - CM21 - 7th June 2008

reconstruction status
Reconstruction Status
  • Aron is making progress on the KEK test beam analysis (combination of TOF and Tracker reconstruction).
  • Mark has written code to take reconstructed TOF space point information and determine the momentum of a particle for an assumed particle mass.
  • Work is in progress to prepare a number of schemes for determining emittance and other beam parameters from the TOF detectors alone for the summer.

unpacking library
Unpacking Library
  • Jean-Sebastien has produced the first version of a library that is the sole source of unpacking code for both the online monitoring and offline code in G4MICE.
  • Tamas and Yordan have made the necessary changes to G4MICE to allow this new library to be used.

M. Ellis - CM21 - 7th June 2008

tracker data format
Tracker Data Format
  • Some code has been written to unpack the new data format from the AFEIIt boards for the tracker.
  • At the moment this is used as a stand-alone program, however it will be incorporated into the unpacker to allow it to be used online and offline once it has had some more thorough testing.

real data date
Real Data (DATE)
  • G4MICE can now read the data format produced by the DAQ (DATE).
  • Yordan has implemented the necessary code in G4MICE to take the output of the unpacking library and generate C++ classes used by G4MICE.
  • The DATE format unpacking can be selected by setting the data card “DataType” to “DATE”.

GRID
  • We have had several new CEs added to the MICE VO (Oxford, RHUL, ScotGRID and Glasgow).
  • I will try to complete installing G4MICE version 1-9-5 on these CEs in the coming week or two.
  • David has been making progress with GRID storage and he and Mark have been using the GRID for a number of studies (alignment and MICE step III)

external libraries
External Libraries
  • I have not made much progress in the past couple of months, however Tamas has been working on the new compiler, GEANT4, etc and has a working version.
  • I want to complete one more System Test (to allow us to check on any effects caused by changing G4) before we make the migration.

software schools
Software Schools
  • A combined introduction to C++ and G4MICE school was held at Fermilab in mid March.
  • I will try to arrange a repeat of this school at RAL in July.
  • By the end of the school, you will be sufficiently familiar with C++ and G4MICE to perform your own simulation and analyse data.
  • Please let me know if you are interested in attending.
  • I will also try to hold a more advanced C++ course later in the year.

M. Ellis - CM21 - 7th June 2008

next steps
Next Steps
  • Focus continues to be on requirements for data taking and analysis as the rest of the MICE instrumentation arrives at RAL.
  • Key areas will be:
    • Database
    • Expanding use of the GRID
    • Preparations for data taking / data transfer at RAL
    • Use of G4MICE for analysis
