1 JWG, 14 October, 2009, Vladislav Manko Status of work and plans of the Russian group in the ALICE Collaboration as of October, 2009

2 JWG, 14 October, 2009, Vladislav Manko Activities in 2009  Improvement, installation PHOS  completed  Test, commissioning & cosmic runs PHOS, TOF, T0, DIMUON, ITS  ongoing  Further development of soft-ware for data analysis PHOS, T0  ongoing  Further development of the soft-ware for DCS PHOS, T0  ongoing  Further development of the physics program  ongoing  First physics run  Analysis of the first physics data (From April JWG)

3 JWG, 14 October, 2009, Vladislav Manko Photon spectrometer (PHOS) February – July, 2009  3 new air – tight casings produced and tested (design and production started in 2008) March – August, 2009  3 PHOS modules assembled in the new casings and tested in the lab July 2, 2009  one PHOS module installed August 13 – 14, 2009  two more PHOS modules installed Current PHOS status  Commissioning of the PHOS is ongoing  Slow cooldown started in end September currently at about 0 o C ( final operation temperature  25 o C) humidity is stable and far below dew point KI, Sarov, IHEP, JINR, Bergen, Oslo, Hiroshima, Wuhan, Warsaw, Prague Conclusion of 2007 long test: Water condensation when cooled  casing needed improvement

4 JWG, 14 October, 2009, Vladislav Manko 4 Airtight casing Photon Spectrometer (PHOS) PHOS installation (August 14)

5 JWG, 14 October, 2009, Vladislav Manko PHOS in beam injection run PHOS takes part on the global ALICE commissioning with cosmic and beam injection runs : the proton beam injection Several events with high multiplicity were observed (more than 100 cells/module). Deposited energy per crystal is low (few tens of MeV). Examples of beam injection events:

6 JWG, 14 October, 2009, Vladislav Manko PHOS in cosmic run HLT event display shows a large shower with some its fraction in PHOS. Analysis is in progress. Examples of cosmic events in PHOS: Spectrum of cell energies in cosmic run

7 JWG, 14 October, 2009, Vladislav Manko 14/10/ th RRB J. Schukraft 7 ALICE Status PHOS modules in the ALICE detector PHOS The ALICE/PHOS Collaboration and the ALICE management are investigating possible ways to fund construction in 2011 the fourth PHOS module, so that it could be installed in the end 2011.

8 JWG, 14 October, 2009, Vladislav Manko Trigger detector T0 May, 2009  Re-cabling of the T0-A detector ( in October, 2008, all cables were removed because of the miniframe modification ), T0 detector commissioned. July, 2009  T0&TRD test.  Verification of proper operation of the interface between the T0 detector and the pre-trigger system for TRD  The new type of the amplifier approved and installed July 11 – 12, 2009  Participation in the injection test  Sensitivity of the T0 detector to the injection particles was demonstrated  The T0 detector operated as a trigger  The calibration with the laser was confirmed to be correct, though, as expected, the amplitude resolution with the injection particles was slightly worse as compared to that with the laser.
