Runlist spreadsheet

March 16th 2021

  • Beam off pedestals (for PMT devices) - needs another pass - HAPLOG
    • Seems like a good idea to use bcm_dg_us.hw_sum_raw/num_samples < -150 or so (spot check 20 runs across CREX)
    • Also look at 1D histogram of BCMs
  • Commit remaining map/cut updates from giant spreadsheet work
  • Update pedestal maps with beam off pedestals, and double check values are all appropriate (Amali, Robert, Cameron)
    • Duplicate usl peds: prex_maindet_pedestal.8453-8506.map, prex_maindet_pedestal.8526-8549.map
  • Update RCDB info
  • Consider adding bmod slope map files for respin2
  • Aim for Friday afternoon initial respin2 test slugs (need to make sure folders and disk usage are all in line too)
  • Getting slug lists and such polished can happen after the respin is underway

March 9th 2021

Preparing for respin2 - mid March - 1 week from now

  • Runlist finalization
    • Finish up runlist checking here
    • Aq issues and BPM 12X cut ranges
    • Github up to date
    • Apply RCDB updates
    • We need a standard set of cuts and procedure for getting slug lists, which can be deliberated after respin2 begins
  • Pedestal updates
    • Use beam off for non-RF systems (does AT data need to have changed pedestals? At least double check them all)
    • Verify segmentation and values for RF systems
    • Refer to beam off pedestals for guidance on applicability ranges
    • Double check PITA scans from respin1 data and BPM calibrations separately
  • Aq shift - solved
  • Questions on AT data-set (similar to Aq issue)
  • Run 8321 config file for file splits?
  • Add combos to mulc and regression for main detector + AT combos (usl_atl1_dd, etc.)
  • Include SAMs and ATs in BMOD calculations going forward

March 2nd 2021

Preparing for respin2

  • Pedestals/new beam trip cut/Aq interrelation question
    • Aq post-trip studies: http://ace.phys.virginia.edu/HAPPEX/4483
      • Things look good when comparing the different time slices post-trip recovery - more plots are needed to determine how well the non-feedback data post-trip explains the shift in Aq from prompt to respin1 data set.
    • Pedestal comparisons for AT: http://ace.phys.virginia.edu/HAPPEX/4482
      • Changing from prompt (wrong) to respin1 (relative to bcm calibrated) pedestals changed the mean asyms by an expected ~3% per target, EXCEPT for Pb208, which changed by ~15%. This needs further investigation to understand why Pb pedestal change affected the asyms so much.
