keyword=beam stability for last ~30 hrs
the beam has been unstable in a remarkably stable fashion over the last 30 hrs. below are histograms for time between beam trips (BEAMON) and time required for recovery (BEAMOFF). the time unit is seconds. if one models a beam trip as a square wave, then one complete period is the sum of the average beam on time (104.5 secs) and the average beam recovery time (50.8 secs), then the frequency is 6.4mHz. this is remarkably close to the frequency from yesterday's Fourier Analysis which was done with a much smaller data set (~1.5 hrs).
