3 Target Parameters Start position:x 1 Start time:t 1 Time beam on:TB 1 Time beam off:TB 2 BCD minimum:x 2 Time BCD minimum:t 2 Strike:s = x 2 – x 1 Strike time:t = t 2 – t 1 Acceleration:a = 4s/t 2 Run reduction code over the raw data to parameterise Can then plot interesting variables quickly Interesting Parameters include Target hold position Target BCD – Beam Centre Distance Target Acceleration TB 1 TB 2 x1x1 x2x2 t1t1 t2t2

4 Target Hold Position 1 hour Takes about 2 hours to warm up 2 populations a result of capture mechanism

5 Target BCD Steering target into/out of beam Stable running Decreased BCD to increase particle rate

6 Target Acceleration Takes about 2 hours to warm up Rapid change – Ohmic heating of coils Slower decrease over 2+ hours

7 Target Acceleration Takes about 2 hours to warm up Lots of stopping and starting

8 BCD Histograms Histogram BCDs for a set value Clear difference between the two distributions Failing target has a much broader spread T2 distribution 3-4 times as broad Can be interpreted as a result of the target “sticking”

9 BCDs for T1 and T2 In each case the test runs were setup to pulse with a nominal BCD of mm Very different appearance for BCD time series plots for T1 and T2 T1 very stable BCD does not vary over time T2 BCD varies strongly over time Plot very “spiky” after ~42k pulses Clear signal for target failure T2 Commissioning Run

10 Calibration Histograms Fit double Gaussian to BCD by handWhy ? Trying to account for second population usually seen

11 Calibration Histograms Tricky to automate, usually need to tweak the fit start values by hand to get the fit to converge Obvious 2 nd peakMore ambiguous case

12 Is it better to simply fit a single gaussian or do no fit at all and use RMS ?

13 Another view of the Calibration Double Gaussian fit can pick out second population and gives better resolution for spread

14 BCD Calibrations to date All within narrow range ~ 0.6mm No discernable change over time

15 Conclusions Have a simple method of spotting potential breakdown of the target Target performance looks fine to date This method is partially automated in current target DAQ – Thanks James Still needs an “experts eye” Don’t want to define some arbitrary failure value until we see how these measurements evolve
