MEETINGS UPDATE

  • EIC@IP6:
  • charter discussions
  • convener appointment process ongoing
  • software framework
  • ECCE
  • Simulations
  • Conveners for calorimtry chosen: Friederike/Yongsun
  • Mattermost - join
  • SRO WORKSHOP
  • Anyone interested in presenting on SRO email Doug


SIMULATIONS

  • STANDALONE
  • Discussion about JLab prototype simulation (Petr)
  • based on Ho-San's NPS code
  • features modular approach - materials (PWO, glass), photosensors (PMT, SiPM)
  • uses one PMT per crystal
  • investigating agreement with beam data - complete agreement difficult as many effects have to be taken into account; current approach: see how close one gets with PWO and then investigate SciGlass
  • EIC FRAMEWORKS (FUN4ALL, ESCALATE)
  • Discussion about state of implementation of EEEMCal in either framework (Carlos)
  • Escalate has hybrid geometry and some analysis (track reconstruction?)
  • Fun4All has PWO only and some analysis (no track reconstruction)
  • Main goal seems to implement different geometry options in all frameworks to optimize for best physics performance
  • ACTION ITEM: Ask ECCE calorimeter team (Friederike/Yongsun) for a meeting on simulations with all interested groups - also brief report on what is already there etc.


PROTOTYPE TEST UPDATES/READOUT

  • Discussion about JLab 2021 planned prototype tests (Vladimir)
  • Tests planned with different materials (PWO, SciGlass) and readout (PMT, SiPM) + streaming
  • Note: new generation PWO means Crytur with different raw material (identified to resolve the issue of raw material shortage)
  • Discussion about readout
  • Plan to use array of SiPMs, but not yet clear how to deal with noise
  • sphenix uses arrays of SiPMs but not for crystals - need to understand how arrays work for crystals or other homogeneous material
  • Crytur-USA has concept ideas for crystal readout with SiPM arrays - can present next time


NEXT MEETING: MONDAY 3 MAY 2021 AT 8:30AM ET

  • Simulation updates
  • AANL
  • MIT
  • Readout/prototype tests
  • Cytur-USA
  • MIT
