1 Test for the CLAS12 RICH detector L. Barion, M. Contalbrigo, L. Pappalardo (INFN Ferrara) V. Lucherini, M. Mirazita, P. Rossi (INFN Frascati) M. Turisini (INFN Sanita’) Aldo Orlandi, Angelo Viticchie’ (INFN Frascati) for the preparation of the test set-ups CLAS Collaboration meeting, October 12-15, 2011 Marco Mirazita

2 Goals of the tests 1.Test MAPMT as single photon detectors  H8500C (normal glass) and H8500C-03 (UV glass) vs R8900 2.Validate Monte Carlo simulations with a small scale RICH prototype - Laboratory set-up using laser blue light - Hadron (pion) beam test of RICH prototype

3 MAPMT characterization as single photon detectors 1) Single photon response - distance between peak and pedestal - peak width - threshold cut 2) Few photon response - distance between peaks - width of the peaks 3) Behaviour with HV - lowest HV for a given 1pe efficiency (80%? 90%?) 4) Uniformity of the PMT response - comparison between border and central pixels 5) Cross talk between pixels 6) Comparison between PMTs LASER BEAM LASER BEAM

10 Analysis of ADC spectra Poisson weights for 0,1,2,... p.e. pedestal  = average number of p.e. N = max number of p.e. photoelectron peaks Several shapes tried, gaussians provide better results in terms of convergence of the fits and uniformity of the parameters

11 ADC spectrum HV = 1000 V pixel 25 (border) pixel 36 (centre) Fits with up to 5 p.e. peaks

12 PMT response normalization constantaverage number of p.e. 1. p.e gain (QDC channels) fraction of 1 p.e. loss PMT H8500C HV = 1000 V

13 Results for 10 MAPMTs HV = 1000 V points: mean of 64 pins error bar: RMS of the 64 pins gain from data sheets (a.u.)

14 ADC spectrum vs HV HV = 1000 V HV = 1040 V HV = 1075 V pixel 25 (border) pixel 36 (center) better pedestal/signal separation easier threshold setting

15 HV scan Up to a factor 2 increase in the gain More than 85% detection efficiency for HV>1040 V Recommended working range HV=900-1100 V

16 Measurement in magnetic field Compensating sextupolar magnet No field at the center Up  50 gauss going toward the border Perpendicular to the electron motion in the MAPMT HV=1040 V larger field smaller field

17 Magnetic field test Less than 15% gain loss Small decrease in detection efficiency No major degrading in the MAPMT response HV = 1040 V B=0 B>0 B=0 B>0

18 Cross-talk analysis Compare the pixel response when - it is directly illuminated by the laser - adjacent pixels are illuminated Threshold: 3  above pedestal

19 Cross-talk contamination N = events above threshold i = up,down,left,right = 2.1% = 2.0% = 2.1% = 2.6% For a given pixel:

35 Hit distributions aerogel n=1.05 aerogel n=1.03 1cm2cm 1cm 3cm integrated distributions of hits above threshold

36 Cerenkov ring calculation Minimization of: Free parameters are the center coordinates (X C,Y C ) and the radius R The problem can be solved analitically Procedure : 1.Calculate center and radius with all hits above threshold 2.If the distance of a hit from the ring is bigger than 2 pixels (12mm) it is removed and a new calculation is done 3.The iteration is stopped if no more hits have to be removed or if N hits <3

37 Some ring GOOD EVENT

38 Some ring BAD EVENT

39 Some ring blue: first iteration red: last iteration Background hit Cross-talk hit? Analysis of cross-talk hits: when 2 or more hits in adjacent pixels, keep only the one with highest QDC readout

40 Aerogel with n=1.05: ring reconstruction 1 cm 2 cm 3 cm red: good hits black: hits for the fitted ring (at least 3) blue: cross talk hits hits per event rescaled to full circle fraction of event with a ring Number of hits per event

41 Aerogel with n=1.05: radius mean sigma Expected radius for pions ~110mm  measured ~120mm  increasing with t Larger radius, better resolution for larger t  expected opposite 1 cm 2 cm 3 cm

45 Runs with mirrors PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS 4 x R8900 MAPMT E = 1.5 GeV

46 Radius reconstruction no mirrors  =4.48±0.03 mm  =7.9±0.3 mm = 4.9 on half ring ~ 10 on full ring Xtalk ~ 3-4 hits No cross talk hit analysis PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS

47 Conclusions and outlook Laser tests of MAPMTs has been (are being) performed in Frascati measurements at 1000 V in agreement with data sheets, but too low HV for reliable single photon detection increasing HV (>~1040 V) sufficiently good single photon detection efficiency can be obtained no large effect from small magnetic field (preliminary) We had successful test at CERN we saw pion Cerenkov rings close to what we expected there things that need to be analyzed more in detail electronics is a crucial point  H8500 could be good single photon detectors
