16 Catania 16 Cablaggio delle connessioni elettriche per la semi-sfera nera Il Modulo Ottico interamente connesso ( ma non chiuso ) viene testato: comunicazione EFCM-FCM-FEM, accensione FEM, accensione PMT, rate in dark PMT accensione e funzionamento Tim-Cal ( tramite Tim-Controll) Accensione e funzionamento LED beacon, Porfido, Piezo

17 Catania 17 Closure of the OM Sealing of the OM : hemisperes were aligned and joined closed under-pressure at 250 mbar external adhesive (Terostat) and final check of the whole OM

18 Catania 18 container with weights to keep OM in the bottom of the chamber The watertight and mechanical resistance of the OM assembled was tested in the hyperbaric chamber of NEMO test site (Catania harbour) up to 350 atm Test in Hyperbaric Chamber Results: No lack of vacuum inside OM No water inside OM No detachment of the gel

R7081 Hamamatsu (10” STD): 10 inch. photocathode Standard bialkali photocathode (QE ≈ 25% @ 400nm) box and line with 10 stages Length ≈ 300 mm max R5912 HQE Hamamatsu (8” HQE): 8 inch. photocathode Super bialkali photocathode (QE ≈ 32% @ 400nm) box and line with 10 stages Length ≈ 275 mm max

20 Catania 20 8 inch super bialkali photocathode Aumentando l’efficienza quantica si ha che il PMT 8 inch superbialkali (QE ≈ 32% @ 400nm) ha una efficienza di rivelazione confrontabile con il 10 inch standard bialkali (QE ≈ 25% @ 400nm) Possibilità 1: data la minore lunghezza dell’8” ci sarebbe lo spazio per montare sulla base ISEG un socket per sostituire l’operazione di saldatura

21 Catania 21 8 inch super bialkali photocathode Possibilità 2: data la minore dipendenza rispetto al campo magnetico terrestre si potrebbe realizzare un OM senza l’utilizzo della gabbia magnetica  Semplificazione e riduzione tempi dell’assemblaggio  Riduzione del costo del singolo OM Il PMT superbialkali presenta una frazione di after pulse tipo 2 ( impulsi spuri from 100ns to 16 us after main pulse ) dell’ordine del 15% ( rispetto al 5% su uno standard bialkali PMT)

22 Catania Measurements of the effects of the Earth’s magnetic field Every PMTs was measured in 3 inclinations: - vertical downwards ( Tilt = 0° ) ; 50° downwards ( Tilt = 50° ); horizontal ( Tilt = 90° ) NORTH PMT downwards Dy 1Dy 2 90° 270° 180° 0° Starting position for each PMT For each inclination, the PMT under test was rotated 360° around its vertical axis in 30° steps Each PMT started its rotation from the same position with respect to the box and to the Earth’s magnetic field North Z 90° 270 ° 180 ° Horizontal position Tilt : 90° Vertical axes 0° Horizontal angles Tilt North 0° Horizontal angles 90° 270 ° 180 ° Z Vertical position Tilt : 0° Vertical axes North 0° Horizontal angles 90° 270 ° 180 ° Tilt : 50° Z Vertical axes Top view

23 Catania 8” SBA PMT (HQE) vs. 10” standard PMT : Detection efficiency Without µ-metal cage the 8” SBA PMT can lose up to 15% in Relative Efficiency and P/V ratio (especially for 50° and horizontal inclinations). The others parameters are less influenced. Both equipped with µ-metal cage, the 10” Std PMT shows a Relative Efficiency slightly higher than the 8” SBA PMT (+5% on average over the angles and inclinations). 23

24 Catania 8” SBA PMT (HQE) vs. 10” standard PMT : Gain For any parameters and any PMT the 50°direction is the one which shows the greater influence on the magnetic field. As expected the 8” SBA PMT shows a lower dependency on Earth magnetic field than the 10” Std PMT 24

25 Catania 8” SBA PMT (HQE) vs. 10” standard PMT : TTS Averaged (over the angles and inclinations) the 8” SBA PMT has a TTS value which is around 1ns below the 10” Std. 25

28 Catania 28 Detection efficiency In naked 8” PMTs the impact of the magnetic field was smaller than naked 10” The shield reduced considerably the variations for the 10” PMT The increased QE in the HQE 8” PMT compensates the smaller detection area respect to the 10” 0° 50° 90° NAKEDSHIELDED 0° 50° 90°

29 Catania 29 Gain Greatest gain variation was less than 10% for both the naked 8” Considerable variations in the 10” PMT naked, up to 29% The shield reduces variations in both the 8” PMTs, with variations less than 4.4 % The shield reduces strongly the variations in the 10” PMT, with variation less than 7% NAKEDSHIELDED

30 Catania 30 Peak to Valley ratio Considerable variations for all the un-shielded PMTs Great reductions in variation by using the magnetic shield Small improvements in average values with the magnetic shield NAKEDSHIELDED

31 Catania 31 Charge Resolution (sigma) Large effects of magnetic field for the unshielded 10” PMT The mu-metal cage greatly reduced the variation in 10” PMT No large effects due to the magnetic field for 8” PMTs. The mu-metal cage reduced variations for both 8” PMTs NAKEDSHIELDED

32 Catania 32 TT No significant variations due to magnetic field for all the PMTs No considerable effects of the mu-metal cage Difference in average value due to the different size between 8” and 10” PMT NAKEDSHIELDED

33 Catania 33 TTS Variations over the 10% in all the un-shielded PMTs Considerable reduction in variations with the magnetic shield No significant improvement in average values with magnetic shield NAKEDSHIELDED
