Day 1 (December 21st)

Notes

  • Current at -1200 V: 200.9 μA (beam off)
  • Some double peaks and very large signals present - noise of some sort?
  • Background rate (-1200 V, beam off, 3 mm collimator): ~4 kHz
    • Threshold: -19.5 mV
    • Rise time: 2.5 ns (without averaging), 2.9 ns over 10 sweeps
    • Amplitude: ~75 mV over 10 sweeps
  • Having the corridor lights on does NOT create enough light to trip the PMT and is acceptable! (Current goes up by 0.1 μA)
  • Peak current estimate at -1100 V: 44 mA
    • Amplitude: 2.2 V
    • Width: ~20 ns
