Beam tests of the UCL plastic scintillator range calorimeter.

Night of 15th to 16th of August 2018

Pre-data Taking Information and Notes

Sheet ordering from front to end (in beam direction): 31,25,24,23,20,16,12,11,9,8,6,5,4,3,2,1,30,29,28,27,26,22,19,18,17,15,14,13,10,7,21

100% beam intensity is about 10e6 particles per second

The MedAustron Ripple filter used in this experiment has a WET of 3mm.

The sensor pixel dimensions are 1030 x 1536 which has to be set manually


Serial Terminal instructions for ISDI sensor:

In Controls/Options: Make sure "Send string with CR" is selected. Should be default.

In Controls/Setup: Select Serial Port: Enabled. Baud rate has to be 115200

Set low full well mode using W000300000

Set high full well mode using W000300004

Read full well mode using R0003



Data Taking

1 hour of beam time: 30min setup, 30 min measurement time

Mistake during data taking: Full well mode should have been "high" in order to have a higher saturation threshold!
