### Systematic Error Notes

• From Megan over gain shift:
```I don't think I'm going to be able to get a number for the gain shift
during PREX, although it should scale linearly with signal-background
size. Using the 1% gain shift we saw during HAPPEX (signal+bkg to
background = 122e6 to 53e6), that would give us a 0.8% gain shift for
PREX (signal+bkg to background = 48e6 to 30e6 at 1kHz * 3.3 to convert
to 30Hz). This would give us a change in the final polarization number
of 1.3%, if it's folded into the background subtraction ( which comes
from comparing a background subtraction of
(48e6-30e6*(1.008))/(48e6-30e6) ). So I'd say the possible gain shift
gives you a 1.3% systematic error.
```
• From Megan over radiative correction:
```I just ran through the PREX data to add in a radiative correction, and I
get that this increases the analyzing power by 0.3% (from 0.01828903 to
0.01834393). This is consistent with what I've seen, so I think it's
safe to add that in there.
```

There is an increase in analyzing power of 0.3%, which corresponds to a decrease in beam polarization by 0.3%. Therefore, the final analyzing power should multiply by (1+0.003) due to A_real = A_exp * (1+0.3%)

w/o the radiative correction:

```analyzing power = 0.01824526 +- 0.00002583 (sta.) +- 0.000279099 (sys.)
```

w/ the radiative correction:

```analyzing power = 0.018299996 +- 0.00002583 (sta.) +- 0.000279099 (sys.)
```
