  1. VLPC Cassette Characterisation • Third application (as described in past tracker meeting and CM17) is now working and has been used on the data taken from cassettes 105 and 112. • First look at cassette 105 data and compare set points determined by this application with those used at KEK. • Then look at unknown cassette 112. • Application attempts to categorise each channel as either: • Dead (no obvious light with the LED on) • Alive (good multi photon fit) • Break down (wide pedestal, no clear multi photon peaks) • The application determines for each MCM which voltage produces the maximum number of alive channels with the highest number of photons seen (i.e. maximum QE). • The gain is also returned for this optimum value.

  2. Cassette 105 • Was used in KEK. • Set points were taken from D0 values and then modified while at KEK to attempt to optimise the performance for the cosmic ray data taking (lower rate). • This optimisation was done “by hand”, but serves as a resonable basis for comparison. • Following plots show results of application. • Three plots per MCM: • Shows the number of dead (red +), alive (green *) and broken down (blue o) channels as a function of the bias. • Shows the gain as a function of bias • Shows the number of photons as a function of bias.

Gains at these voltages are also similar. Mean number of PE is uniform ~ 10% over the cassette. No dead channels in cassette 105 M. Ellis - Tracker PC - 7th March 2007

  12. Cassette 112 • New VLPCs with unknown performance. • No prior experience (D0 or MICE) so no idea of correct bias, number of dead or noisy channels, gain, QE, etc... • Application returned the following: • A few channels are apparantly dead. • Two MCMS have all channels good. • Worst MCM has 5 dead channels. • Overall: 495 out of 512 good channels. 264 1 5.500000 64 5.397580 0.429997 264 2 5.500000 61 4.732149 0.124874 264 3 6.100000 59 6.382651 1.078974 264 4 5.700000 60 5.378247 0.271078 264 5 6.000000 62 8.675414 0.903699 264 6 5.900000 62 8.554704 0.823486 264 7 5.200000 64 6.186020 1.196068 264 8 5.300000 63 6.814510 1.756557 M.

  21. Conclusions • When I get a chance I want to tidy up the third application so that it is a little more user friendly, then it will go into CVS. • I think the tools are working reasoanbly, although I suspect Alan and I need to spend some time together looking over the results to tweak a few things. • We can get going with the VLPC characterisation (still need to sort out cryo set points for 9.5K though). • It looks like Cassette 112 should be fine for QA work, but perhaps shouldn’t be used for a production cryostat.
