  • Worked with Adriana on developing the analysis to accept multiple raw files
  • Can identify each peak in the spectrum based upon behavour of the CSP channel.

  • hptpc_neutron00_000_018.pnghptpc_neutron00_020_078.png
  • hptpc_neutron00_047_024.png
  • All this is within a single run, a spark appears to trigger the change between each state. Looking through later files, the behavour returns to normal and then back to bad again
  • Applying peak time cut effectively removes this bad behavour from the files.
  • See Adriana's logbook for final plot showing combined files with baseline and time peak time cuts (Also preliminary gain)
  • Shakedown of Amplifiers was good, using the test input, scope traces looked identical for all channels.
  • 3 instances of bad grounding on the boards which has now been fixed. Extra insulation on the inside of the cases has been added.
  • Vessel backfilled with CF4 to 40mbar(30 torr), pressure reached before backfill was 8.44x10^-7 mbar
  • Drift field achieved and stable 3200V (compared to 2700V previously) Getting better smile can at do 100V/cm field at least.
  • Anode voltage frown Bottom left starts to spark at approx 0.5-1Hz when at a voltage of 650V, 50V short of where I usually try and take data to see how everything is behaving.

  • Baseline Analysis,
Line: 13 to 28
 
    • Extract the baseline from every trace and push it into a histogram for each channel
    • Fit gaussian/find RMT and define a cut of accepting only waveforms that have a baseline within 8sigma
    • Remove whole events that do not make the cut, Replot and refit.

  • Pulse height analysis
    • dmtpc framework is mostly defined in Pulse.hh (for anyone who is interested)
    • The getPeak() function extracts the peak and subtracts for baseline offset
Line: 21 to 36
 
    • Code (and a tutorial on what each part of my macro is doing what has been passed down to Adriana for further modification/development (getPeakTime() cuts which shouldn't take much development
    • Currently my analysis works only one a single file though it should be realitively simple to make it work on a string of files.
    • Quite slow... might concider a compiled version rather than a macro, shakes fist at CINT

  • Friday - Adriana and I did a full vacuum system and DMTPC operations tutorial,
    • Made modification to HV feedthrough, changing the connection type to a push on one
    • Applied Kapton insulation over any bare wire, the push on connector and length of the pin.
