Mirror and HPD alignment (Chris E.)

Added:
>
>
Mirror and HPD alignment has been performed for the following testbeam runs:

N2: 3, 4

C4F10: 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 55, 56, 66, 75, 76, 88, 89, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95

If further runs are needed, let me know!

How to use:

  • Include the appropriate alignment options file in your software: Use Alignment_Data.opts for reconstructing testbeam data, Use Alignment_Sim.opts for simulating the testbeam and for digitising and reconstructing simulated data.

  • In the alignment options file uncomment the lines corresponding to the testbeam run required.

  • Check you are using the correct geometry database (DDDB_RiTB20071005.db or later).

Differences between the alignment options files

The testbeam simulation does not currently support the individual alignment of HPD Si sensors in Gauss. As a result, the Alignment_Sim file only contains mirror alignment conditions. The Alignment_Data file contains alignment conditions for both the mirror (determined from data) and the individual Si sensors inside each HPD (from the Scotland HPD testing).

Photon yields and beam composition from C4F10 runs (Erica, Davide, Tito)

Results from the analysis of most of the C4F10 runs (v3 DST file version) are available. A model for the expected distribution of the number of hits has been developed. A Poisson-distributed photoelectron yield is convoluted with a binomial function accounting for charge-sharing between adjacent pixels and a second Poisson parameterising the probability of two photons hitting the same pixel. The contributions of one, two and three particles per bunch to the function have been also considered. The fit range is fixed for all the runs between 5 and 30 photoelectrons. In the following table the average numbers of photoelectrons per radian Npe/Δθ (Npe/rad) for all the HPD involved in the test are shown. Only runs with the nominal value of the TTCrx = 160 (corresponding to a Time Delay = 16.67 ns) have been considered; known bad runs are excluded in this computation.
Added:

The average is quoted for all runs which involve the HPD, irrespective of the C4F10 concentration.

Switching off the "fudge factor"

The Gaudi-based reconstruction software has an inbuilt "fudge factor" which shifts the mean of the Cherenkov angle by a small amount to the correct value. This shift is very small and is used to handle tiny residual effects which are not handled otherwise. The effect for the TestBeam setup is tiny indeed, however, as it's tuned for the full LHCb detector description and setup, it may be best to switch it off. This link points to the documentation of the fudge factor. It can be switched off by adding the following linen to TestBeamAnalysis.opts or RichPhotonsFromReco.opts (which is included by the main options file)
ToolSvc.Offline.RichPhotonCreator.PhotonParams.CKThetaQuartzRefractCorrections = {0,0,0};
The plot below illustrates the effect fudge_nofudge.png

The black histogram is with the "fudge factor" switched on, the red when it is switched off. The mean (of the histogram) changes slightly from 21.92 to 21.96 when switching the factor off

 

Data

All data has been copied to CASTOR. The Excel file attached to this page summarises some details regarding each run of data-taking.
The orignial MDF files are in /castor/cern.ch/lhcb/testbeam/lhcbrich/2006. These files have been rebuilt to correct various deficiencies and at the same time to convert from the old MDF v1 format to v3 format. The v3 MDF files can be found at /castor/cern.ch/lhcb/testbeam/lhcbrich/2006_mdf/. They should be used in preference to the old files for any new DST production or analysis that uses the MDF files directly.
The files converted to the DST format can be found in /castor/cern.ch/lhcb/testbeam/lhcbrich/2006DST . The DST files created from the original MDF files taken during the beam-test are called run_xxxx.dst, the ones created from the MDF files converted to the v3 format are called run_xxxx.dst_v3.

  The latest version of the simulation included in the last tar-ball is based on Gauss v30r2 and Boole v14r0. These releases break DC06 compatibility, so there may be some differences between results obtained with this version compared to previous versions; this should be investigated. When compiling, warnings will appear about conflicting Gaudi releases, this is a known feature and can be ignored. In order to simulate C4F10 events, new versions of the structure and geometry xml files for the 'AfterMagnet' region are required; these can be found at /afs/cern.ch/user/n/nstyles/public and should be copied into the folder Gauss_v30r2/Det/XmlDDDB/DDDB/AfterMagnet to replace the versions currently there. For using Boole, you should check the you have the lastest version of the sql database, and change DefaultTAG from "N2" to "C4F10" in 'v200601.opts'.

Results from the analysis of most of the C4F10 runs (v3 DST file version) are available. A model for the expected distribution of the number of hits has been developed. A Poisson-distributed photoelectron yield is convoluted with a binomial function accounting for charge-sharing between adjacent pixels and a second Poisson parameterising the probability of two photons hitting the same pixel. The contributions of one, two and three particles per bunch to the function have been also considered. The fit range is fixed for all the runs between 5 and 30 photoelectrons. In the following table the average numbers of photoelectrons per radian dNpe/dθ (Npe/rad) for all the HPD involved in the test are shown. Only runs with the nominal value of the TTCrx = 160 (corresponding to a Time Delay = 16.67 ns) have been considered; known bad runs are excluded in this computation.

Photon yields and beam composition from C4F10 runs (Erica, Davide, Tito)

Results from the analysis of most of the C4F10 runs (v3 DST file version) are available. A model for the expected distribution of the number of hits has been developed. The Poisson-distributed photoelectron yield is convoluted with a binomial function accounting for charge-sharing between adjacent pixels and a second Poisson parameterising the probability of two photons hitting the same pixel. The contributions of one, two and three particles per bunch to the function have been also considered. The fit range is between 5 and 30 photoelectrons. In the following table the average numbers of photoelectrons per radian for all the HPD involved in the test are shown. Only runs with the nominal value of the TTCrx = 160 (corresponding to a Time Delay = 16.67 ns) have been considered; known bad runs are excluded in this computation.
 
Changed:

In the following tables, Mu is the number of PhotoElectrons (PE) found from the fit, Theta is the fraction of the full angle seen by each HPD, Ratio the number of PhotoElectrons per radian; Chi2/NDoF and Fit Range are the parameters of the fit. Details of the PhotoElectron counting can be found at Test Beam Meeting 03.04.2007. The analysis is going on, and new results will appear soon.

The following will only display correctly if this plugin is installed and configured correctly.

Data

All data has been copied to CASTOR. The Excel file attached to this page summarises some details regarding each run of data-taking.
The orignial MDF files are in /castor/cern.ch/lhcb/testbeam/lhcbrich/2006. These files have been rebuilt to correct various deficiencies and at the same time to convert from the old MDF v1 format to v3 format. The v3 MDF files can be found at /castor/cern.ch/lhcb/testbeam/lhcbrich/2006_mdf/. They should be used in preference to the old files for any new DST production or analysis that uses the MDF files directly.
The files converted to the DST format can be found in /castor/cern.ch/lhcb/testbeam/lhcbrich/2006DST . The DST files created from the original MDF files taken during the beam-test are called run_xxxx.dst, the ones created from the MDF files converted to the v3 format are called run_xxxx.dst_v3.

TestBeam paper

We should aim to summarise the analyses of the beam-test in a published paper. It would be good if we could send the paper to the journal by fall, completing the internal review over the summer. Please start filling in the sections with your analyses. The tar-ball with all files is attached to the TWiki.

All of the above are N2 runs, with the Cherenkov ring positioned on HPD 461. C4F10 runs will be made available once a correct mirror position for this radiator is obtained from the alignment. NB all of these data files were produced with a particle momentum of 450 GeV. This is not correct, as the momentum of the beam particles was 80 GeV; however this should not affect the cherenkov angle as we are already saturated by 80 GeV.
  Currently, hits are not produced over the entire tracking sensor due to an active radius applied in Boole to remove hits that could not have come from photo-electrons. If this proves to be problematic, this may be changed for the next tarball.

  A simulation with the tracking HPDs included is now completed and will be included with the next software Tarball. The tracking HPDs are assigned the same L0IDs as in the real data (131 & 126) so the same tracking algorithms should be able to be used on simulated data. Options will also be available for the ParticleGun allowing a pion- beam with impurities (10% electron, 7% Kaon, 3% Proton) and with multiple particles per event (poissonian, with mean settable in options file) to be generated.

  • 13-15 (desynchronization between trackers)
  • 16 (no tracking)
  • 30-36 (desync. between trackers; run 36 also seems to have rows of pixels for some events from 73865 onwards and other runs may have that problem too, as yet unseen)
  • 37 (no tracking)
  • 38-55 (desync. between trackers; also seem to have many inefficient pixels)
Deleted:

<
Data for runs 61 & 63 seems to have been lost.

Runs 92-95 are tests of higher trigger rates. Runs 96-100 are tests of sending several almost consecutive triggers (e.g. 15 triggers within 30 clock cycles, with one being sent every other clock cycle), of which only the first of each set is necessarily correlated with coincident signals in the trigger scintillators.

A simulation with the tracking HPDs included is now completed and will be included with the next software Tarball. The tracking HPDs are assigned the same L0IDs as in the real data (131 & 126) so the same tracking algorithms should be able to be used on simulated data. Options will also be available for the ParticleGun allowing a pion- beam with impurities (10% electron, 7% Kaon, 3% Proton) and with multiple particles per event (poissonian, with mean settable in options file) to be generated.

The following data sets are currently available on CASTOR, and can be found at: /castor/cern.ch/user/n/nstyles/testbeam-simdata

sim001.sim/digi001.digi: pure pi- beam, single particle, travelling along single fixed path parallel to z-axis. Vertex at x=-305 mm, y=7 mm, z=8000 mm.

sim002.sim/digi002.digi: pure pi- beam, single particle, travelling along multiple paths parallel to z-axis. Vertices over range x=-300 to -320 mm, y=0 mm to 20 mm, z=8000 mm.

sim003.sim/digi003.digi: impure pi- beam, multiple particles (mean particles/event = 1.1), travelling along multiple paths parallel to z-axis. Vertices over range x=-300 to -320 mm, y=0 mm to 20 mm, z=8000 mm.

All of the above are N2 runs, with the Cherenkov ring positioned on HPD 461. C4F10 runs will be made available once a correct mirror position for this radiator is obtained from the alignment.

 Charge sharing occurs when a significant number of the electron/hole pairs created by a single photoelectron are spread between adjacent pixels in the HPD. Data from LED runs was used to estimate this effect (to the 1% level or better). The charge sharing breakdown by HPD number (==2*L0 board number+L0 HPD position) follows. Those percentages flagged in orange may have a significant irreducible ion feedback rate reducing the precision of the charge sharing estimate, or have very low statistics in the LED runs.

Some issues were discovered in some runs.

Some runs have data missing from some HPDs in some events (LED runs). The cause of this problem still to be discerned. In the mean time, beware that the probability of any HPD having zero hits is much higher than is expected in the following runs.

*Runs 24 & 25.

In addition, the following list of runs should be considered as "bad" and not be used in the analysis.

Details on demagnification law (from Thierry)

The HPD electrode voltages had been for years set as follows:

  • photocathode: -20kV
  • 1st electrode: -19.700kV
  • 2nd electrode: -16.417kV
  • anode: 0kV

The corresponding de-magnification law is illustrated in the first attached plot called "Previous_optics.pdf". This plot shows the fit results for a quadratic law.

Following the integration of HV monitoring lines, and the implementation of a redundant resistive HV splitter, the HPD electrode voltages in the final system are set as follows:

  • photocathode: -20kV
  • 1st electrode: -19.714kV
  • 2nd electrode: -16.478kV
  • anode: 0kV

The corresponding de-magnification law is illustrated in the second attached plot called "Final_optics.pdf". This plot shows the fit results for a quadratic law.

The third attached plot called "Both_optics.pdf" shows the superposition of the 2 laws. The final one results in a slightly larger image on the pixel chip, for a given image on the photocathode.

Please keep in mind that the law relates photocathode radial coordinates (as measured from the tube axis) to anode radial coordinates. As such, it does NOT include the refraction effects at the quartz window.

The estimate of the Point Spread Function for both optics is shown on the fourth attached plot called "PSF_HVsplitter.pdf". This estimate is the result of a MC simulation with simplified hypotheses on the energy spectrum and emission angle of the photoelectron for incoming photon energies of 2eV and 4eV, assuming a photocathode threshold energy of 1.5eV. As such, it definitely is not what the real situation is.

Finally, please bear in mind that all effects described here assume a tube with perfectly made mechanics, and exact electrode voltage values. This is definitely not the case in practice. Also, the presence of a stray magnetic field will distort and blur the images.

Instructions

Analysis

The data is analysed using TestBeam.exe in the package Rich/TestBeam package. Go to the cmt area of this package, setup Brunel via BrunelEnv v30r14 and source ./setup.(c)sh . The main option file for the test-beam analysis is TestBeamAnalysis.opts in the options area of the same page. The following algorithms are currently used:

  • RichFixedTestBeamTrackAlg/CreateTrack create a single (ideal) track per event, not using the tracking HPDs (mainly used for simulation studies with using the ParticleGun to shoot one particle through the detector)
  • RichClusteredTestBeamTrackAlg/CreateTrack create clusters from hits in the tracking HPDs, create tracks from these clusters (used for data analysis)

Simulation

To simulate events with the test-beam setup, Gauss is used in conjunction with the ParticleGun. One pion is shot through the detector with fixed momentum and direction (N.B. hits in the tracking HPDs are are not simulated at present). To simulate new events:

  • Go to the cmt area of the Sim/Gauss package
  • Setup GaussEnv v25r6 and source setup.(c)sh
  • Build Gauss if not yet done
  • Run Gauss via ../slc3_ia32_gcc323/Gauss.exe ../options/Gauss.opts. You may want to edit ApplicationMgr.EvtMax and the setting in ParticleGun.opts
  • This produces Gauss.sim and NewCatalog.xml and some monitoring histograms)
  • Now go to the cmt area of the Digi/Boole package
  • Setup BooleEnv v12r9 and source setup.(c)sh
  • Build Boole if not yet done
  • Run Boole via ../slc3_ia32_gcc323/Boole.exe ../options/v200601.opts
  • This produces Boole.digi and NewCatalog.xml (and some monitoring histograms). The .digi file can then be analysed with TestBeam.exe

Visualisation

The events (both real data and simulation) are visualised using Panoramix.

  • Go to the cmt area of the Vis/Panoramix package
  • Setup PanoramixEnv v13r10 and source setup.(c)sh
  • Build Panoramix if not yet done
  • Run Panoramix via ../slc3_ia32_gcc323/Panoramix_main.exe ../options/testbeam.opts (N.B. this includes the TestBeamAnalysis.opts from TestBeam.exe). If you want to visualise the simulation output of Gauss, use ../options/tr_test_sim.opts
