Minutes for UCL Proton Calorimetry Meetings, 27th May (Everyone is working from home)


Simon Jolly,Laurent Kelleter, Saad Shaikh, Raffaella radogna

Raffaella Radogna

  • provided comments to Laurent's Ch8
  • Implemented a linear tail distal to the Bragg peak in the QB model. Compared results for standard QB and QB+Tail fits of PDL data. Results for April19 test beam are discussed in this presentation
  • Will analyse Nov18 PDL
    • analyse raw Nov18 images
    • fit the depth-light profile

Saad Shaikh

  • Read and gave feedback on chapters 6-8 of Laurent's thesis.
    • Will read remaining chapters over the week.
  • Continuing with learning FPGA programming (slow progress):
    • Tested 'WM controller' code given by Matt Warren, unsure if working, will contact him again.
    • Udemy course lectures not that helpful so far, but now onto lab exercises which might be better.
    • Found some Vivado-related training material on Xilinx University Program, will work through this.
    • No response (yet) from Electrical Engineering about accessing course material.
  • Discussion about taking on MSci student to work on FPGA communication with computer:
    • Could be done in parallel with work in communication between FPGA and ADC.
    • Hypothetical discussion, continue work as is but might be worth discussing feasibility of loading fitting procedures onto FPGA with Matt.
    • On a similar note, need to ask Matt about High-Level Synthesis, which appears to offer framework for C/C++ code to be translated to HDL.
  • Ion-fitting:
    • Definitely should implement Kramer's model, perhaps by starting with definition for protons.
    • Will use FPGA down-time and after reading Laurent's thesis to finish literature review and plan next steps with Raffy.
