Minutes for UCL Proton Calorimetry Meetings, 10th November

Present

Simon Jolly, Saad Shaikh, Raffaella Radogna

Saad Shaikh

  • Delivered presentation on UCLH November 2nd beam test.
    • Need to double-check WET calculations of white sheets against black sheets.
    • Will fit around Bragg peak to see if results improve.
    • Will fit Bortfeld curve to reference data to fix R0 and sigma, to then vary Birks' constant for PDL fit.
    • Worth investigating varying sheet density to see if WET calculation is correct.
  • Will provide Matt with pin-outs for FMC connector to get FPGA code ported for Rev. C boards.
    • Will then need to port code for USB104 for both PMOD and ZMOD interfaces.
  • Naoki Kimura has experience with FPGA curve fitting. Will meet with him tomorrow to discuss further and share fitting code.
  • Will need to simulate detector geometry with photodiodes in GEANT4 to see if PDL is consistent.
  • Need to create presentation for FRPT.
