Detector Characterisation Group GRT4 time stamping problems There are problems with the time stamp on two GRT cards. Plot shows time different between core and segment time stamp.
Detector Characterisation Group GRT4 Energy correlation There were issues with the GRT 4 MWD code. A peak separation of >13us gives uncorrelated data. The plots above show MWD vs baseline difference energies.
Detector Characterisation Group GRT4 energy performance The energy resolution performance for the GRT4 MWD algorithm was assessed with the AGATA detector. Typical response for the centre contact is illustrated. What is the cause of this tailing?
