Study of Cross-talk on the MAPMT-to-Hybrid cable

Overview As HV is increased beyond ~600V, we start to see capacitive coupling between channels. Initial studies indicated it was due (mostly) to the flat cable connecting the baseboard to hybrid.

Possible Short-Term Solutions Use the same cable (~3) but with spacing between the wires. Use a very short cable of 0.5 (approximated a direct connection from baseboard to hybrid) Study each alternative cable as a function of HV and Threshold.

Plots Old cable (3) at 700V and threshold 105 Old cable (3) at 800V and threshold 90 New cable (3) at 700V and threshold 105 New cable (3) at 800V and threshold 90 Short cable (0.5) at 700V and threshold 105 Short cable (0.5) at 800V and threshold 90

Summary Both the split cable and short cable reduce the interwire coupling, but neither eliminates it. Possible other sources/tests. Make a cable with 2 wires only at positions 1 & 32 and check if coupling still persists. Connectors? Traces on hybrid, baseboard? Possibly try injecting charge directly into the pre- amp through a 10 pF cap (nominally, 62Ke-/mV)
