Attendees: Ilya, Rory, Jon, Sean, Igal, Simon, Malte, Mark, Alex, Zisis"

  1. Announcements: this is a dedicated meeting on calibration, with presentations by Ilya and Igal.
  2. Calibration:
    1. Ilya: he summarized his work on CPP/NPP calibration. See his previous postings: GlueX-doc-5877 and GlueX-doc-6216. The first one includes considerable details. Ilya has derived new calibration constants but have not been uploaded yet. The high Z targets here mean different e/m background as compared to nominal GlueX running; pi+/pi- vertex helps with e/m background and results in good pi0 in the centre of FCAL. The BCAL obscures the outer FCAL regions. Ilya said that the pi0 skims are ok, but could we do better? Typically, 10 iterations are needed. Energy linearity was examined up to 6 GeV photons: asymmetric pi0->gg were used, with g1 between 1.5-2 GeV and g2 scanned up to 4.5 GeV. Also omega->pi0g was used and g went up to 8 GeV. LED corrections to the pi0 gain were not successful; jumpy LED channels. Ilya did not use cooked data, just skim filers. It would be good to implement Ilya's code using omega skims and apply to PrimEx/GlueX. Ilya and Igal will collaborate offline and share their constants.
    2. Igal covered his standard approach, as can be seen, for example, in GlueX-doc-6293. PrimEx is quite clean!
  3. Any other business: none.
