Production Run List

Start Slug 13, IHWP OUT Flip Right, FFB on always

      • Since we are using bcm_dg_ds, the width in the bcm is ~1.5X of what we used to have with bcm_an_ds3
  • Good - run3622
  • Good - run3623
  • Good - run3624
  • Suspicious - run3625
    • Mini-run 0 has too large detector widths->Fixed after bad_event_cut
    • BPM fluctuating
  • Good - run3626
  • Suspicious - run3628
  • Suspicious - run3629
    • Aq mean is too large
    • Test run HALOG
  • Suspicious - run3630
    • Detector widths are fluctuating between mini-runs.
  • Suspicious - run3631
    • Detector widths become worse
    • Beam position change
    • Beam current fluctuating
    • Normalized detector yield is decreasing over time
  • Suspicious - run3632
    • Regressed detector widths are even higher
    • Normalized detector yield is decreasing over time
    • Regressed detectors are correlated
  • Suspicious - run3633
    • Normalized detector yield is increasing over time (opposite to run3632)
  • Suspicious - run3634
  • Suspicious - run3635
  • Suspicious - run3636
    • Long beam trip during the run
    • Normalized detector yield is decreasing again

Non-Production Runs and Bad Runs

Pedestal/Calibrations Updates


  • There were many pedestal and event cut problems. From now on, when an event cut isn't absolutely necessary it should be removed - see japan source code for reference of cuts here
  • The BCM appears to be falling apart. We are fixing it and running slug 12 on BCM DG DS in the meantime.
  • BPM 4ec had intermittant problems (iocse10 has issues) and so we are regressing with 4e again. BPM 11X is ok and stays in regression.

  • Increase in Detector widths and Collimator temperature HALOG COLLIMATOR HALOG
  • Increase in collimator temperature and raising neutron dose HALOG
  • The increase in detector widths started from late Swing Shift HALOG
  • Cavity BPM lock change HALOG
