NOTE

A bug meant that in all the previous files a sample of only a few hundred halo electrons was used. This has now been fixed and 37500 halo electrons are used in the files below.

Current files

Files 17 and 18 2nd February 2011

These files were generated using the same simulation as files 13 and 14. The statistics are increased, and a sample of 37500 halo electrons was used, instead of just a few hundred. The muons were recorded at a plane at the exit of QF1.

The number of primaries used to generate this file was N_p = 7.65E5 by repeating a sample of 3.75E4 halo electrons.

The number of muons/antimuons per primary halo particle hitting the sampler at QD0 is (4.96 +/- 0.12)E-5. Assuming 2E10 particles per bunch, and a halo population factor of 1E-3, there are 991 +/- 24 muons/antimuons per bunch (here +/- is the statistical uncertainty in the estimate of the mean).

Files 19 and 20 2nd February 2011

Here, the spoiler geometries are updated to the latest designs, as presented in WEPEB046, "Optimisation of the CLIC baseline collimation system", in the Proceedings of IPAC '10, Kyoto, Japan. The magnet settings, however, remain unchanged. Work is ongoing to include the optics optimisation in the simulation.

Overview

Changed:
<
<
BDSIM gmad files were generated from the v_09_04_01 MAD decks, including all apertures. Cross checks were performed using core electron and positron distibutions. A tunnel geometry was created including a tunnel floor, beam line offset, concrete walls and surrounding soil. A tapered spoiler geometry was created. Relevant physics processes were turned on and cross section biased to reduce required computing time. The simulation was run on the RHUL grid farm with 1.5 T eV electrons and positrons as the primary particles (halo distribution files generated by H. Burkhardt at CERN using htgen). Files with known problems have "BUGS" in the title, and should not be used.

Energy is the energy of the particle in G eV. x and y are the positions of the particle from the reference trajectory in metres. x' and y' are the normalised components of the momentum vector along the two axes. partID is the PDG particle code (for muons, partID=-13, for antimuons partID=13). z0 is the position along the z axis of the last interaction of the particle. weight is the weight factor, which depends upon the cross section biasing factor of the process in which the particle was generated and the weight of the parent particle.

At 1.5 T eV, the dominant process is gamma-> mu- mu+ and electron positron annihilation can be ignored. Therefore electrons incident and positrons incident produce similar numbers of muons.

The number of primaries used to generate this file was N_p = 46569, with the cross sections weighted by the following factors:

gamma -> muons: 1e4

annihilation -> muons: 1e4

The number of muons/antimuons per primary halo particle hitting the sampler at QD0 is (1.616 +/- 0.012) X 10^(-5). Assuming 2 X 10^(10) particles per bunch, and a halo population factor of 10^(-3), there are 323.2 +/- 2.4 muons/antimuons per bunch (here +/- is the statistical uncertainty in the estimate of the mean).

File 3 30th March 2010

  • muons_e-_30_03.txt: Muons at the exit of QF1 (~3m upstream of the entrance to the final quadrupole QD0) from 1.5 T eV halo electrons hitting YSP1.

There are several changes and bug fixes.

  • The beam line is now based on the latest MAD deck, v_10_01_25.
  • A problem with the interface between the HTGEN output and BDSIM has been resolved.
  • The width of the samplers has been increased.

The file format and cross section biasing are the same as for file 2.

The number of primaries used to generate this file was N_p = 30789

The number of muons/antimuons per primary halo particle hitting the sampler at QD0 is (5.98+/-0.04) X 10^(-5). Assuming 2 X 10^(10) particles per bunch, and a halo population factor of 10^(-3), there are 1196 +/- 8 muons/antimuons per bunch (here +/- is the statistical uncertainty in the estimate of the mean).

File 4 30th March 2010 - BUGS

===CORRECTION 9th April 2010=== * muons_swap_e-_30_03.txt: Muons at the exit of magnet QF1 from 1.5 T eV halo electrons hitting first vertical spoiler ysp1. Betatron and energy collimation section ordering is reversed.


This file was created under the same conditions as file 3, with the exception that the energy and betatron collimation sections are swapped. Therefore, muons created in the betatron collimation section have further to travel in order to reach the detector.

To swap the collimation sections the following line in the MAD file is changed:

noentrcolsys: line:=(sentr,trans1,nlcecoll,trans2,etbcoll, sexit, trans3,nlcbcoll,trans4,btff, trans5);

is changed to

noentrcolsysswap: line:=(sentr,trans1,etbcoll,trans2, nlcbcoll,sexit,trans3,nlcecoll,trans4,btff, trans5);

This keeps approximately the correct beam size at the IP (sigma x 39 nm -> 45 nm, sigma y remains at 1nm) while swapping the ordering of the betatron collimation section (nlcbcoll) and the energy collimation section (nlcecoll).

The number of primaries used to generate this file was N_p = 30386

Files 7 and 8 13th April 2010 - INCORRECT APERTURES

ALL APERTURES WERE 8mm APART FROM THE COLLIMATORS

  The same as File 4 but with an improved swapped collimation sections beam delivery system layout (layout produced by Rogelio Garcia). The files are in two different formats. Format 1 is the same format as Files 3 and 4. Format 2 is the same format as Files 5 and 6 and contains extra data columns (z0, weight).
Line: 120 to 122
  The number of muons/antimuons per primary halo particle hitting the sampler at QD0 is (1.37 +/- 0.05) X 10^(-6). Assuming 2 X 10^(10) particles per bunch, and a halo population factor of 10^(-3), there are 27 +/- 1 muons/antimuons per bunch (here +/- is the statistical uncertainty in the estimate of the mean).

BDSIM gmad files were generated from the v_09_04_01 MAD decks, including all apertures. Cross checks were performed using core electron and positron distibutions. A tunnel geometry was created including a tunnel floor, beam line offset, concrete walls and surrounding soil. A tapered spoiler geometry was created. Relevant physics processes were turned on and cross section biased to reduce required computing time. The simulation was run on the RHUL grid farm with 1.5 T eV electrons and positrons as the primary particles (halo distribution files generated by H. Burkhardt at CERN using htgen).

BDSIM gmad files were generated from the v_09_04_01 MAD decks, including all apertures. Cross checks were performed using core electron and positron distibutions. A tunnel geometry was created including a tunnel floor, beam line offset, concrete walls and surrounding soil. A tapered spoiler geometry was created. Relevant physics processes were turned on and cross section biased to reduce required computing time. The simulation was run on the RHUL grid farm with 1.5 TeV electrons and positrons as the primary particles.

Data Files

  • muons_e-_1500GeV.dat: Muons at the entrance to QD0 from 1500 G eV halo electrons hitting YSP1. File format:

Energy[GeV] x[m] y[m] xp yp partID z0[m] weight

Energy is the energy of the particle in G eV. x and y are the positions of the particle from the reference trajectory in metres. xp and yp are the normalised components of the momentum vector along the two axes. partID is the PDG particle code (for muons, partID=-13, for antimuons partID=13). z0 is the position along the z axis of the last interaction of the particle. weight is the weight factor, which depends upon the cross section biasing factor of the process in which the particle was generated and the weight of the parent particle.

At 1.5 T eV, the dominant process is gamma-> mu- mu+ and electron positron annihilation can be ignored. Therefore electrons incident and positrons incident produce similar numbers of muons.

The number of primaries used to generate this file was N_p = 51232, with the cross sections weighted by the following factors:

gamma -> muons: 1e4 annihilation -> muons: 1e6

The number of muons/antimuons per primary halo particle hitting the sampler at QD0 is (1.949 +/- 0.033) X 10^(-5). Assuming 2 X 10^(10) particles per bunch, and a halo population factor of 10^(-3), there are 389.8 +/- 6.6 muons/antimuons per bunch (here +/- is the statistical uncertainty in the estimate of the mean).

CLIC Muon Background Simulation Using BDSIM

This is an ongoing project to simulate the muon flux into the CLIC detector due to beam halo collimation. All data presented here are provisional.

Overview

BDSIM gmad files were generated from the v_09_04_01 MAD decks, including all apertures. Cross checks were performed using core electron and positron distibutions. A tunnel geometry was created including a tunnel floor, beam line offset, concrete walls and surrounding soil. A tapered spoiler geometry was created. Relevant physics processes were turned on and cross section biased to reduce required computing time. The simulation was run on the RHUL grid farm with 1.5 TeV electrons and positrons as the primary particles.
