DDC232 Instructions

  • Bash script prog.sh executes FTDI.cpp and livePlot.cpp. Execute with . prog.sh 2 350 0 170 0 50 true 20211102/capture.txt in the directory Photodiodes.
    • First argument is the number of DDC232s.
    • Second argument is the full-scale range (FSR) in pC. Choices are: 12.5, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350.
    • Third argument is the y-scale for the ROOT display. Set to 0 for default.
    • Fourth argument is the integration time in us. Range is 170-1455. Set in multiples of 5 us.
    • Fifth argument is the number of measurements to acquire. Typically acquire 5700 measurements per second. Set to 0 for infinite loop.
    • Sixth argument is the rate in Hz to update the file average.csv for ROOT/web GUI plotting.
    • Seventh argument is a boolean to choose whether to display the ROOT plot.
    • Eighth argument is the filename and destination for the output hexadecimal data.
  • After acquisition, close ROOT by choosing File->Quit in the ROOT window and then stopping DAQ (if in infinite loop) with CTRL-C.
  • To perform a fit while acquiring data, add the following arguments: fit 20211103 background.txt backST.txt frontST.txt
    • Ninth argument enables fit option
    • Tenth argument is the folder containing background and shoot-through measurements.
    • Eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth argument are the background, back shoot-throughs and front shoot-throughs respectively.

Experiment Plan

  • Background & calibration shoot-throughs (background at all 8 DDC232 full-scale ranges)
  • Pencil beams, 70-110 MeV, 5 MeV steps, 2 currents (high/low)
  • Live fit demo: pencil beam 100-110 MeV
  • Treatment plan: range steps, 110 MeV-70 MeV, 1 MeV steps, no x-y scanning (demo live fit)
  • ±1, 2, 3, 4mm in x-y planes, 100 MeV
  • Detector misalignment, ±2°, ±5°, ±10° 100 MeV
