The scale factor for the full photon selection efficiency in the ECAL barrel. The total scale factor is determined by the product of the scale factor calculated using the tag and probe technique and the scale factor of the electron veto. The electron veto scale factor is calculated in data and simulation by counting the number of passing and failing photons from Z→μμγ process, which is ~99.6% pure source of photons.
Uncertainties are both statistical and systematic.
