Analysis shift worker

The analysis shift worker is tasked with ensuring that the data is analyzed after it is taken, and with assisting in all tasks that the shift leader requests.

There are tools available for the analysis shift worker to check the quality of the data and analyze/reanalyze runs in Online analysis

Analysis Expert Tasks

  1. Assist shift crew in data taking as needed
    • help diagnose and solve CODA issues
    • answer questions about plots in Panguin
    • remind the TO to check the Panguin plots frequently
  2. Makes sure online analysis is up to date
  3. Look at beam quality
    • Look at runs from a previous good period and compare to the current runs
    • Watch for changes in means and widths over time
    • Log anything that you think is an issue that needs to be investigated and email the WAC
  4. Decide when to change IHWP settings
    • Each slug should have ~8 runs, but the real measure is a total charge of at least 1.2 C (but not too much more than this)
    • Keep track of the accumulated charge in the slug using the counter
      • If the current run had steady beam and no known issues, check the accumulated charge before it ends
      • If the accumulated charge is >1.2 C including all runs but the current run, and the current run is good, you can probably increment the slug
      • Ask the shift leader to follow the instructions at Flipper
