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. 26th. 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/preparation for hifi current DAQ 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.
        • Target status: Empty per RadCon group request, 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): 4h 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) Invasive but done during beam studies
    • Beamline, TAC platform: Fiber test for profiler prototype (Regina)? Fiber thickness info required in the RSAD

Runplan

  1. Verify electron beam quality and establish photon beam (assume 1 day).
    • Ion Chambers trip threshold must be set using Al. radiators
    • Tune electron beam with radiator retracted
      • Radiator (amorphous and diamond) must be retracted. Collimator should be in blocking position.
        • Typical levels are (for radiator retracted, collimator fully blocking, electron beam current 50 nA)
          • RAD102_P1 ~ 10 mrad/hr (tagger area, gammas, between tagger and dump)
          • RAD102_P2 < 0.1 mrad/hr (tagger area, gammas, on the ground below the goniometer).
          • RAD102_P3 ~ 0.3 mrem/hr (tagger area, neutrons, near electronics racks)
          • RAD508_P1 < 0.1 mrad/hr (collimator cave, gammas).
          • RAD508_P2 ~ 0. mrad/hr (Hall. Neutrons).
    • Establish good photon beam
    • Make sure tagger quadrupole is on and at -4.2 A. (It can be turned on only once the Hall is in power/beam permit.)
      • Insert 2*10-5 RL radiator. Call MCC and ask to mask the FSD and turn off beam each time a radiator is moved
        • Typical levels are (for 2×10-5 radiator, electron beam current 50 nA)
          • RAD102_P1= 35 mrad/hr (tagger area, gammas, between tagger and dump)
          • RAD102_P2= < 0.5 mrad/hr (tagger area, gammas, on the ground below the goniometer)
          • RAD102_P3= ~2 mrem/hr (tagger area, neutrons, near electronics racks)
          • RAD508_P1= ~10 mrad/hr (collimator cave, gammas).
          • RAD508_P2 < ~ 0. mrad/hr (Hall. Neutrons).
    • Verify beam position and envelope (Hovanes).
      • Ask MCC to set beam position on 5C11b to x=-0.5 mm and y=+1.0 mm.
      • Ask MCC for 5C11 and 5C11B HARP. Then do our radiator HARP scan, see instruction. If it looks good, proceed to next step. Otherwise, inform MCC.
      • Insert profiler (no need for masking FSD when an object is inserted in the photon line), run with 10×10-4 radiator and 50 nA. Beam on the profiler should be at x=0.0±0.5cm; y=0.0±0.5cm. If not, inform MCC.
    • Radiation level study (1h):
      • Run 5 min without radiator (Call MCC and ask to mask the FSD each time the radiator is moved). Beam current: 50nA. Repeat at 100 nA and 200 nA
      • Run 5 min with the 10-4 radiator (Call MCC). Beam current: 50nA. Repeat at 100 nA and 200 nA
      • Run 3 min with the 3*10-4 radiator (Call MCC). Beam current: 50nA. Repeat at 100 nA and 200 nA
    • Photon flux optimization and Active Collimator calibration. (20 + 20 mins). Call Hovanes.
      • re-Insert the 10-4 radiator (Call MCC). Use about 100 nA beam current. This will provide the Act. Col. nominal positions for its high gain values.
      • Determine maximum photon beam transmission by doing 2D scans using the collimator x/y motions (Hovanes. 1h)
      • Repeat procedure with 2*10-5 radiator (Call MCC) and 50 nA beam current. This will provide the Act. Col. nominal positions for its low gain values.
      • Record on the white board what is the beam position on 5C11b and Active Collimator for optimal photon transmission, both for low and high Act. Col. gain.
      • Until Hovanes determines to optimal 5C11b and Active Collimator position, keep profiler in and beam locked (MCC's duty) on the nominal 5C11b and x=0,y=0 profiler position. Once Active Collimator nominal beam position is known, retract profiler and lock the beam (MCC) on the active collimator.
  2. Detector and beamline checkout.
