First look into reconstructed data of test beam at DESY in Feb 2018

The following runs were used: 5370-5379

The setup consists of 4 modules (13,14,15,16) with an absorber in front. The detector was running with the BIF for time reference.

The following plots are without any event selection or cuts - just plain reconstructed events. For reconstruction the default calibration constants in the database were used and a simple time calibration was performed.

The reconstructed root file can be downloaded here:

Hit distributions

Number of hits per event: nHits.pdf

Hit distribution I coordinate: hitI.pdf

Hit distribution J coordinate: hitJ.pdf

Hit distribution K coordinate: hitK.pdf

Memory cell occupancy: memoryCell_occupancy.pdf Memory Cell is defined as hitType - 100, so you have to substract 100 from the xAxis to get the memoryCell number.

Energy Distribution with varying distance to center of the shower (pos i=12, j=12 is the center of the detector):

pos 12, 8: hitEnergy_13_12_08.pdf

pos 12, 2: hitEnergy_13_12_02.pdf

Energy distribution for different memory cells in the same channel in log and normal scale.

Memory Cell 2: hitEnergy_13_12_12_memCell-02.pdf hitEnergy_13_12_12_memCell-02_log.pdf

Memory Cell 3: hitEnergy_13_12_12_memCell-03.pdf hitEnergy_13_12_12_memCell-03_log.pdf

Memory Cell 4: hitEnergy_13_12_12_memCell-04.pdf hitEnergy_13_12_12_memCell-04_log.pdf

Together in one plot: hitEnergyMemoryCellsComparison.pdf

Conclusion: Memory cell 3 does not show a different behaviour

Hit energy distribution for 4 different channels in all layers (12,12; 12,13; 13,12; 13,13) for each memory cell Run_5370_hitEnergy_perMemCell.pdf

Same channels as above but summed over all memory cells but the first one (as the first one never goes into low gain mode): Run_5370_hitEnergy_perChannel.pdf

Time distributions

Data after a simple time calibration (only slope and offset, no timewalk/non-linearity). The slopes seem to be a bit more flat than before: plus/minus 1-1.4ns/tdc.
