Minutes for UCL Proton Calorimetry Meetings, 10th March
Simon Jolly, Raffaella Radogna, Saad Shaikh, Fern Pannell
- Tested DDC232 daisy-chain with resistors, experimental runs listed here.
- Will send another email to Clive and Izzat to ask for help.
- Raffy to get in touch with Marko to get a quote on new DDC232 boards made.
- Added new details to the DDC232 page, with latest version of FTDI code.
- FTDI code works on Raspberry Pi, with only a few changes to compile command.
ftdi_tcioflushfunction not found, but older deprecated version can be used instead.
- Pi is slow, with average time between measurements at about 650us instead of 180us.
- Will benchmark performance of "minimal" version of FTDI code, where data is collected but not processed.
- Will also benchmark performance of "full" and "minimal" versions of FTDI code on Windows.
- Will compare channel noise of single DDC232 board with alternate photodiodes replaced with resistors.
- Will start investigating non-ROOT-based fit.
- Raffy has suggested to use GNU scientific library.
- Working on HEP School problems this week.
- Curve with >>16 points can now be displayed over the 16 photodiode bars.
- New Java dummy data generating file has been written to create curve data.
- Line one contains 16 values (photodiode bars)
- Line two contain 16n values (y values of curve points)
- Utilising a second (hidden) x-axis on the chart for the curve, the line is shown over the bars.
- Will need to start considering deploying a localhost to run this process locally - move away from SSH to the HEP server.
- I have experience with the node.js http-server so will test initially with this. The Apache web server will likely be the lasting choice to host the display, which can be investigated after the http-server tests are successful.
- Accepted PhD position at UCL.
- Proton-driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration (AWAKE), with Matthew Wing.
- Bleed Purple for life xoxo
