Presentation Transcript

  1. Welcome to the workshopon forward calorimetry organization, schedule, funding Richard Seto FOrward CALorimeter

  2. How much do we build? • NSAC milestones • Gluon structure function in nuclei • G, g(x) • Sivers, Collins • Jet-particle correlations in AuAu • We will want a minimum of 1 side for all physics ($3.4M) • Once we build one, we have space to build a second – cheaper • What will we gain? • Other side in pA, dA or any other asymmetric collision • region not explored at RHIC • Different rapidity region, larger rapidity coverage • e.g. jet-jet for Sivers • factor of 2 in statistics (remember a RHIC run in $100M) • For now we will concentrate on one side

  3. Strategy: Plausibility scenario

  4. Cost estimate for FOCAL 1 (?)

  5. Cost breakout (?) strip Readout W structure Digital Analog Pads strips Total $3.4M

  6. Funding concept • Part 1 • 1 side pads only $1.9M • BNL • Part 2 • remainder for strips(/0) gamma/pi0 • NSF MRI/RIKEN

  7. NSF MRI – special call (stimulus) • Announced ~ 1 week ago • Preproposal (at UCR, SUNY) due in early June (4th) 3 page summary, budget sketch, bio’s • NO COST SHARING AT UCR • Proposal Due in Aug 10 • 15 pages are dedicated to the actual technical and scientific proposal. The rest is budget justification, references, CVs and institutional letters of support • It will be necessary to have letters of support from BNL and PHENIX management in the attachment to the MRI.

  8. Strategy: Plausibility scenario Part 1 Part 2

  9. Schedule • by end Summer 2009 • R and D done for prototype (run will be in April) • Simulations reaching conclusion • By Fall 2009 – Final proposal ready, production ready • Detailed schedule needs to be worked out • but installation and commissioning by early 2012 seems reasonable (2 years) • e.g. 160 supertowers @2/week =80 weeks

  10. conclusion • R and D is well advanced • Ready to go into production • have people • But we need cash • project ready to go by summer – after test beam (proposal ready by Fall)

  11. FOCAL Org chart Draft 5/18/2009 note: Elke will be helping us (Carla) with the project management

  12. physics groups (a sketch – to fill in today)

  13. Hardware (sketchy)
