      • Will be placed at three different locations during DIRC commissioning. Access necessary to move them to new position. (Solenoid field does not need to be ramped down.) 3h is necessary to move GEM/TRD from one location to the next (ideally done during beam study/RF recovery).
      • Will be moved in the Pair Spect. area during Spring run.

General Information

This document describes the run plan for the Hall D Fall 2019-Spring 2020 run.

  • Schedule for the run:
  1. Nov. 18th - 24th: Electron beam restoration.
  2. Nov. 25th - Dec. 19th: 2 PAC-weeks for DIRC Commissioning (Solenoid at nominal field. LH2 target))
  3. Dec. 20th -Jan. 2nd: Xmas break.
  4. Jan. 3rd - 9th: Electron beam restoration. (Same condition as Fall ⇒ It is not unreasonable to imagine it to be faster). This was the case for the Fall17-Spring18 run where the Xmas break was also very short.)
    • Counting room will be staffed (Standby).
    • If time allows, the GEM/TRD will be moved to PS location (lower priority than GlueX production if we have an early start).
  5. Jan. 10th -May 6th: GlueX high luminosity production.
  • Nominally, every Mondays: 12h of beam study. Every Tuesdays, if necessary: 8h of RF recovery.
  • Accelerator overall plan and priorities:
    • Deliver physics beam to 4 halls. (Hall A stop early, on March. 23rd. Halls B and or C will always be at 5th pass (except for 2×2 days for Hall C), so Hall D beam will always be RF-separated.)
  • Hall D plan
    • Experiment: GlueX E12-06-102 Production
    • Straight track run:
      • At the very beginning of the Fall run.
      • Done for each of the 3 positions of GEM/TRD
      • Overall, one night of good data.
      • ⇒ overall about one calendar day: 14h of data (assumes 60% efficiency + 4h for moving GEM/TRD + 8h solenoid ramp-up.
    • DIRC commissioning page (+TRD/GEM).
    • DAQ:
      • new CODA 4h at higher intensity than standard.
      • cDAQ 4h at higher intensity than standard.
      • Data consistency check (parasitic).
    • Trigger tests:
      • FCal-BCal-ST trigger test: 1 shift
      • High intensity (i.e. nominal for this run) trigger needs tuning at each increase of the beam current until nominal high intensity is reached.
    • HV scans for TOF's new counters.
    • Tagging accidentals beam tests (Richard Jones, Beni,Todd Satogata, Mike McCaugh) 2×shifts + tests during beam studies.
      • Mott area study by CEBAF staff. Done during beam studies. Hall D may be open.
      • High rate tagging test: 1 shift: 3h of data taking at 100% efficiency+overhead.
        • To be done twice. Once at the start of Fall, once during Summer run.
        • First iteration: to be done after straight track runs when the solenoid is ramping-up.
        • 8 rate scans from 3kHz to 50kHz PS rates.
        • Beam current 125 to 2100 nA</font> on 40m Al. amorphous radiator.
        • PS trigger only.
        • Empty target, GlueX detector off, 5mm collimator, switch off all of TAGH.
        • 10M events for each run or more if rate is high: a run should not be less that 10 min.
        • Can be followed by empty target run, since the target will be emptied for the test.
    • ComCal test: anode current studies with special trigger (raw mode): 1h invasive.
    • Pair. Spec. test area:
      • Right arm (facing downstream): FCal Pb-W cristal quality and detector checks. Fully parasitic
      • Left arm:
        • EIC/Hall C aerogel tests. To be done before the glass-scintillator test below.
        • Fall 2019: Test of Hall C 3×3 block glass-scintillator prototype. Fully parasitic
        • Spring 2020: TRD/GEM will be present after removal from in front of DIRC. Aerogel may be present. Fully parasitic
    • CPP trigger tests: 1 shift + 2 shifts of installation/removal.
      • End of Fall or beginning of January.
      • Invasive.
      • Installation/removal should be coordinated with beam study and RF recovery, to save a shift or two.
    • Test fast raster beam envelope measurement with larger x-rastering (Todd Satogata/ Mike McCaugh/Richard Jones) ??h invasive but done during beam studies
    • Beamline, TAC platform: Fiber test for profiler prototype (Regina)? Fiber thickness info required in the RSAD
