1 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting1 Pi/Mu Separation and Muon dE/dX Leo Jenner, UCL

2 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting2 In Brief… Pi/Mu separation runs at CalDet this year Pi/Mu dE/dX Plane efficiency Pion contamination of muon sample

3 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting3  Test beam to CERN East Hall contains electrons, pions, muons, kaons, protons, deuterons  Pions usually shower but occasionally look identical to muons  Special Cerenkov runs: over and under pion threshold 1.8 GeV

4 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting4 Before and after collimators from Turtle Lph: 49/50

5 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting of events fired neither cerenkov

6 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting6

7 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting7  Range > 40 to remove electrons  Both(muons): 3176, 3not1(pions): 806, 1not3: 427, neither: 4189  Cerenkov 3: 85% efficient, good agreement with MK

8 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting8  Cov cut doesn’t get all PS muons and eat lots of real muons  Also try correcting for plane efficiencies

9 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting9 Plane 2 and 6 hit… was plane 4 hit? Blue: Plane 2 and 4 hit… was plane 0 hit?

11 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting11

12 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting12  48 < Range < 57  Scaled by plane efficiencies

13 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting13 Pion dE/dX Lph=53 Magnets deviated?

14 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting14 Sum of deposited energy 60 keV / sigcorr ADC MeV deposited per plane (averaged along entire track) MeV / plane expected from Bethe- Bloch ( )

15 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting15

16 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting16 15% back to pions, 2.25% to muons Far more muons than expected

17 Jan Cambridge Collaboration Meeting17 Conclusion Many PS muons Cov 3 about 85% efficient CalDet plane efficiency about 88% Range cut much more successful than Cov cut Focussing magnets may have deviated 60 keV / sigcorr ADC Many more muons than expected w.r.t. pions
