To image the target or raster size by plotting the hits as a function of raster x and y current, we do the following:

Taking the Data

Analyzing the Data

  • Log into one of the aonl machines (e.g., a-onl@aonl1).
  • Run the command: spot_SBS [run-no], where run-no is the CODA run number of the raster scan. If omitted, the most recent run will be analyzed.
  • After a few moments, the plots will pop up
  • When prompted, enter y on the command line to post the plots to the HALOG (n does not post to the HALOG).

Plot Descriptions

  • BPMA y vs x: Shows the beam location at BPM A
  • BPMA x: Shows the number of events at each x value in BPM A
  • BPMA y: Shows the number of events at each y value in BPM A
  • BPMB y vs x, BPMB x, BPMB y: Same as above but for BPM B
  • Beam at target y vs x, …x, …y: Same as above for at the target
  • BPMA Antenna 1, 2, 3, 4: Signal at the four wires of BPM A, one for X+, X-, Y+, Y-, respectively
  • BPMB Antenna 1, 2, 3, 4: Same as above but for BPM B
