Triggering on ISR Events Nicolas Berger BaBar Online/DAQ/Trigger Workshop December 2 nd, 2004
ISR Signal Look for events with –high-E photon (E* = GeV) –Recoiling hadronic system (charged or neutral) Produce qq continuum and 1 -- resonances ( …) Use s’ = inv. mass squared of Had system as reference
BG Filter Improvements 2 New filters in 2003 reprocessing: BGFIsr: Select ISR events –Require cluster with E*>2.5 GeV, < cos( *)< 0.93 and one of: –1 track E/p 600 MeV/c OR –2 tracks, E/p 250 MeV/c OR –2 clusters, E > 100 MeV –Veto if tracks with E/p > 0.8 and p*>4 GeV/c –Veto on topologies BGFRadTwoProng: Unbiased 2-prong sample for efficiency studies. –2 tracks with p* > 250 MeV –Missing p* > 2 GeV, Pointing in EMC acceptance –Missing M < 2 GeV.
BG Filter Improvements BG Filter efficiency vs. s’ for different filter configurations, on 0 + - MC Denominator = fiducial events BGFIsr gives significant improvement Only BGFMultiHadron with BGFNeutralHadron with BGFTau with BGFTwoProngwith BGFIsr s’ [GeV] Efficiency

0 + - Issue 2: Pion showers Fails BGF Doesn’t fire BGFIsr due to Bhabha veto
0 + - Issue 3: Interactions Fails L3, No IP tracks (We probably don’t want this event anyway!)

Conclusions ISR events are a challenge for the trigger The BaBar trigger performs well –Most of the events useful for physics are selected –For L1 and L3, benefit of the “inclusive” selection approach. –For BGF, more problems originally but modifications always possible (if willing to wait ~6 months!)
