The most important aspects of the optics is the momentum resolution required, how to do the calibration: specifically using some combination of ep elastics, fixed point targets, straight throughs, and angle determination.

Optics Calibration

Optics calibration can be done with some combination of the following

  • ep elastics
  • Fixed point target
    • Carbon foils
  • Straight through
    • Drilling plugable holes through baffles
    • Rotating baffles
    • Using existing slits
  • Angle determination
    • Using straight-through calibration and model field changes to angle
    • Sci-fi tracker just by the target
