TileCaloPublicResultsTiming

Introduction

This page lists the public plots illustrating timing studies.

Timing

Time distribution of the TileCal cells. Cells were selected with an energy cut of 300 MeV and difference between the energies of the two readout channels of the cell < 0.2 Ecell.

The Tilecal cell time distribution (Ecell > 20 GeV) observed with 2010 collision data (October 2010 high-statistics runs, representing ~15 pb-1).

In every event, only cells belonging topoclusters of the reconstructed jets with pT>20 GeV are selected. Jets are required to have at least one reconstructed track and point to the primary vertex. Background is removed using the standard jet cleaning requirements except the jet time, which is calculated only from non-TileCal cells. Gaussian fit to the distribution results in mean/sigma compatible with Mean/RMS indicated in the plot. Excluded from the analysis are cells with unstable/incorrect timing (1% of cells) as well as scintillator cells.

eps version of the figure
Mean cell reconstructed time as a function of cell energy in the 2011 collision data at $\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV and 50 ns bunch spacing. Left plot is obtained with isolated muons, right plot with jets (pT>20 GeV). The mean muon time response is very close to zero and essentially independent of the energy deposited for muons as expected. The mean time for jets decreases with energy deposited in the cell, probably due to neutron/slow hadronic component of the hadronic showers.

eps version of the figure
Cell time resolution as a function of cell energy in the 2011 collision data at $\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV and 50 ns bunch spacing. The time of the cell has been corrected for its mean time. The resolution was parametrized with the function $\sigma=\sqrt{{p_0}^2+\left(\frac{p_1}{\sqrt{E}}\right)^2+\left(\frac{p_2}{E}\right)^2}$, describing well the data. Muons deposit only a small fraction of their energy, so only high-gain region is explored, which reaches up to 20 GeV. The time resolution is 0.5-0.6ns for E~20GeV and 1.3-1.15ns at ~2GeV for jets and muons respectively.

pub_resolution.png
eps version of the figure
The reconstructed time in all Tile calorimeter channels is monitored in physics runs with laser calibration events shot during empty bunch crossings. In Run-1, TileCal suffered from frequent sudden changes in time settings (typically in a group of six channels), mostly associated with the module configuration after power restart due to LVPS trips. As the time changes are also seen in laser events (left plot), they were used for correcting the physics reconstructed time during the calibration loop, still before physics data are processed. The reconstructed time in physics events after the bulk physics data processing is shown in the right plot.

In Run-1, TileCal suffered from frequent sudden changes in time settings (typically in a group of six channels), mostly associated with the module configuration after power restart due to LVPS trips. The changes were monitored and corrected using the laser events shot in the empty bunch crossings. The plot demonstrates the impact of these corrections in physics data of period 2012.G. Displayed is the reconstructed time in Tile calorimeter channels (E_{channel} > 4 GeV) belonging to cells that are part of reconstructed AntiKtTopo jets (R=0.4). The timing corrections significantly reduce tails in the physics data reconstructed time, the corresponding RMS improves from 0.90 ns to 0.82 ns.

all_channels_periodG_pubplot.png
eps and pdf version of the figure
Mean cell time in jet events (pp data at √s = 13 TeV, 25 ns bunch spacing) as a function of the energy deposited in cells. All Tile Calorimeter cells belonging to reconstructed jets with pT>20 GeV are considered, after the usual event and jet cleaning procedures are applied. The mean cell time slowly decreases with deposited energy due to neutrons/slow hadronic component of the hadronic showers.
Each colour corresponds to different run, the run-to-run differences up to ~0.5 ns are evident (left panel). These differences come from beam phases and they are also observed in other ATLAS subdetectors, in very good mutual correlation. The differences can be largely removed by adjusting the global time offset for each run in one specific bin E~21 GeV (all mean times are set equal in this bin), as shown in the right panel.

mean_cell_time_25ns_lba_public.png
eps version of the figure
The cell time resolution in jet events (pp data at √s=13 TeV, 25 ns bunch spacing) as a function of the energy deposited in Long Barrel cells of the Tile Calorimeter, after accounting for run-to-run differences. All cells belonging to reconstructed jets with pT>20 GeV are considered, after the usual event and jet cleaning procedures are applied.
The closed circles correspond to Gaussian σ, the open squares indicate the RMS of the underlying time distributions. The resolution in Long Barrel is slightly better than in Extended Barrel cells (even if E-cells are excluded), due to physically smaller cells in Long Barrel compared to Extended Barrel.

eps version of the figure
The cell time resolution in jet events (pp data at √s=13 TeV, 50 ns bunch spacing) as a function of the energy deposited in Long Barrel cells of the Tile Calorimeter, after accounting for run-to-run differences. All cells belonging to reconstructed jets with pT>20 GeV are considered, after the usual event and jet cleaning procedures are applied.
The closed circles correspond to Gaussian σ, the open squares indicate the RMS of the underlying time distributions. The Gaussian widths are basically the same as with 25 ns data, while the RMS is better with 50 ns data due to lower contribution from the out-ouf-time pile-up.

resolution_50ns_lb_public.png
eps version of the figure
The reconstructed time in Tile Calorimeter channels is monitored during the physics runs with jet collision data (top) as well as with the laser calibration system (bottom). The sudden shifts (so-called timing jumps) are simultaneously detected by both monitoring systems, the plots show example of a timing shift by ~10 ns in a group of six channels of the LBC42 module. These results are available during the so-called calibration loop and allow for time constants correction before the data are processed for the physics analyses.
