HERD test beam related page.

Collaborators of the test beam are from:

  • Institute of High Energy Physics, China
  • Xi’an Institute of Optical and Precision Mechanics, China
  • University of Perugia/INFN, Italy
  • University of Bari/INFN, Italy
  • University of Salento/INFN-Lecce, Italy
  • University of Geneva, Switzerland

Before the Beam

The CALO+ICCD protoype is scheduled to arrive CERN at least one week before the beam time. There are about fifteen participants from China, five of them (mechanical engineer, ICCD DAQ expert, electronics expert and contact person ) will arrival with the prototype, and the rest will arrival two days before the beam time. M will guide the Chinese collaborators for the registration, dosimetry service. And at the same time, power-on self-check and basic CR test and necessary adjustment of the prototype will be accomplished within the week.

Beam Time

The beam time for HERD is from 11-Nov to 20-Nov refer to the the beam schedule issued on 01-Sep-2015.

There are two kinds of run during the beam time: 11-Nov to 16-Nov, proton run; 16-Nov to 20-Nov, Pb run.

Note that the technical stop is NOT as usual (usually the slot is 10 hours form 08h to 18h in the same day). The techical stop is 24 hours for the proton run and 34 hours for the Pb run, which means the valid beam time is shorter than expected.

Instrument Support Platform

CALO+ICCD system will be placed on the top of GOLIATH in PPE134/H4. The Plastic scintillator and Silicon ladder will be placed on the platform made by Bari/Perugia at BAT.887. M will contact Michael Jecke (EN Department, for the details of GOLIATH.

Collaborators from China prefered to live in PREVESSIN-MOENS-Residhome and rent several cars from CERN/company at Ferney-Voltaire. The most important thing is that there are several master cookers hidden among them. Head directly to their kitchen during meal time if you like traditional Chinese food. smile
