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
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
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:
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
