2 Overview Compton Int. Point  detector e - detector

3 Detection 650  m strips PbW04 Hall A e - only  only Coincidences 7mm gap

4 “e - Only” Differential method, Running-time  Main systematic error = calibration Typical 2.5% relat. GeV Installed online

5 Response Function Electron detector   energy tagger 1 strip selected Response func. over e - det. Range Semi-integration method Optimized software threshold Cross-check of syst.

8 3 GeV Reduce gap from 7 to 5mm Covers more than 75% of E range 1% stat. in 1h Goal: 2% syst.

10 e - Detection Differential method  -strips of 50  m for good calibration I.R. laser Green laser -Need to detect e- between 2.5 and 3mm of the primary beam -Could be done with remote position control of the e- detector. -1% stat in 20h -Compton edge 6mm from the primary beam -1% stat in 5h (assuming 1.5kW laser) Bkg? Beam position stability? -Light upgrade of electron det. -Distances from beam currently achieved -Major hardware change

11 A Max  detection Integration method with very low threshold (few% of Compton edge) -No syst. from resolution and calibration -Need to know the det. Efficiency -1% stat. in 4.5 days Requirements with IR laser: E  = [120 keV-12 MeV] 100 kHz High efficiency

12  Detection  Bkg level: can be tested in April during GDH.  Monitoring of efficiency: few % level? radioactive sources,  expected flat above. 2 layers detector: PbWO4, pure CsI: 1  10 MeVLSO: 0.1  1 MeV Huge light yield, 420nm Dense: 7.4g/cm3 Fast: 42ns Size of 4x4x4 cm available 20 to 200  e per  Transparent to 420 nm 6 to 60  e per   PMT Main systematics:

13 CONCLUSION With electron detector 2mm lower: -OK for HAPPEx2 -Error budget tight for 4 He Upgrades: -Green laser: 175 k$, 2 man/year Would make e- detect. Work -New photon detector: Can be tested in spring 2003 with current setup
