Electronic Log for Saad Shaikh

## 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.
