Cavity Sensitivity Estimates

Position Cavity

The dipole mode sensitivity was estimated from the following formula, the measured external quality factor of 617 and R/Q from simulation in several codes, of which CST and GdfidL use a hexahedral mesh while Ace3p uses a tetrahedral mesh:

Code R/Q /Ω Sensitivity/V nC-1 mm-1
GdfidL 0.85 8.7
Ace3p 0.77 8.3
CST 0.77 8.3

Reference Cavity

The measured external quality factor of the reference cavity is 203.

Code R/Q /Ω Sensitivity/V nC-1
GdfidL 28.2 87
Ace3p 9.8 52
CST 10 52

Correction, June 2013

The mode R/Qs were now calculated by integrating over the full geometry instead of just the cavity length:. The results for the position cavity are:

Code R/Q /Ω Sensitivity/V nC-1 mm-1
GdfidL 3.26 14.73
Ace3p 3.27 14.75
CST 4.55 17.40

The results for the reference cavity are:

Code R/Q /Ω Sensitivity/V nC-1
GdfidL 50.3 118
Ace3p 50.7 118

Position signal (offset=1mm, charge=1nC) Reference signal (Charge=1nC)
Location Volts dBm Volts dBm
Cavity out 14.7 36.4 118 54.4
Electronics in 3.37 23.6 5.39 27.6
Electronics out 5.99 9.60 9.2 32.6
Digitiser in 4.44 26.0 7.11 30.0

  • Position scale factor: 0.62 mm
