To Do

High Priority

  • Add information to PBT Wiki
    • Analysis routines to fit Bortfeld and quenched Bortfeld Bragg curves to simulated data.
    • How to take data with scintillator stack coupled to CMOS sensor.
    • Analysis routines for data taken from scintillator stack.

Low Priority

  • Investigate FPGAs.

Completed

  • Literature review.
  • First Birmingham experimental run.
  • Wrote code to load and plot Caen digitiser data in histograms.
  • Overhauled LeCroy data analysis routines: (short region) double baseline sigma testing, dynamic integration window allocation, empty acquisition checks.
  • Wrote code to scale and plot LeCroy & Caen data onto single plot, using approximate x and y-scale factors.
  • Wrote code to load and plot PRaVDA data in 2D histograms.
  • Wrote code to correlate tracker and calorimeter measurements, to produce a list of events with X, Y, E coordinates.
  • Wrote code to plot matched events into various 3D histograms: XY, XE, YE.
  • Progress report.
  • Progress interview.
  • Improved LeCroy & Caen matching by finding x-scale factor through chi-square minimisation.
  • All runs from first Birmingham put through matching algorithm. Energy spectra, 2D tracker histograms, and 3D XY, XE & YE histograms plotted for all runs (187 plots).
  • Wrote code to plot 3D XY histograms, but with the height of bars being the average energy in the bin.
  • Improved LeCroy & Caen matching by finding y-scale factor through chi-square minimisation or through peak event counting. Peak event counting method best.
  • Converted energy to range in XYE histogram.
  • Plotted 2D number density histogram alongside 3D XYRange histogram.
  • Produced poster for PPRIG 2019 of experiment with single-module calorimeter and PRaVDA tracker.
  • Attended PPRIG 2019.
  • Completed MSci Final report.
  • Attended PTCOG 2019.
