6 TPC meeting, CERN, April 2002Børge Svane Nielsen, NBI6 Mirror support rings New: mirror support integrated with Alu rings: Prototype produced at NBI

7 TPC meeting, CERN, April 2002Børge Svane Nielsen, NBI7 Rod gluing normal gas rod Alu ring: normal gas rod macrolon piece: mirror support ring:

8 TPC meeting, CERN, April 2002Børge Svane Nielsen, NBI8 Micro-mirror z positions (1)  4 micro-mirrors per rod, at about (0, 1/3, 2/3, 1) length  vary z positions slightly between odd/even rod Principle of choosing z positions: Normal gas rod consists of sections:  mm with alu rings inbetween. In laser rod:  cut first and last section in two and insert laser ring  replace 2 normal rings with laser rings in odd rods  cut 2 middle sections and insert laser rings in even rods

15 TPC meeting, CERN, April 2002Børge Svane Nielsen, NBI15 Laser system objectives (P. Glässel) Electronics testing Sector alignment Drift velocity monitoring – Pressure, temperature – Temperature gradients (stratification?) – ExB effects, space charge Two possible approaches: – Relative measurements, rely only on time stability of laser ray position – Absolute measurements, requires knowledge of absolute position of laser ray. More ambitious

16 TPC meeting, CERN, April 2002Børge Svane Nielsen, NBI16 Stability of laser and beams We are trying to assure the best possible mechanical stability in the construction and to make position measurements during installation. But: we cannot assure laser system position stability better than the tolerances and movements of the support structure (rods and cylinders). System with micro-mirrors  laser ray positions determined by the mirror positions and angles, not by the main laser beam. Mechanical stability of the TPC is good enough for precise (100  m) relative measurements once the TPC is installed. During installation, the TPC will undergo stresses due to handling (turning on end) and change of loads (ROCs, cables etc). ’Absolute’ positions must refer to something that it stable or measured relative to something else well-known: ROCs, central electrode... ? This should make the system better than most previous ones.

17 TPC meeting, CERN, April 2002Børge Svane Nielsen, NBI17 How obtain ’absolute’ positions? What is known precisely and ’absolutely’? (   m ?)  central electrode z position  pad plane z and gating wire z and x/y position  special effort: measure beams near inner cylinder for beams close to end-plate with TPC in horizontal position before installation of IROCs Well measured relative to each other (  100  m, 0.05 mrad):  internal angles in micro-mirror bundles  micro-mirror bundles in support rings  bundle support rings in uninstalled rods Probably needs ’internal alignment’ and iterations:  precise position and angles of beams far from end-plates  everything that may move due to twists of cylinders, rods etc. Less well measured or prone to move (  500  m, 0.2 mrad):  rod positions relative to ROCs, central electrode and ALICE x,y,z
