Coordinate Detector

The Coordinate Detector (C-Det) is a passive PMT based detector used to measure the electron's vertical angle at a resolution of 1.2 mm. Using C-Det as a component of GEp, a proton form factor experiment, will also significantly reduce the proton track search region during experimentation.

instructions for running replay on aonlX

This section contains instructions for running the replay script with all detectors on a-onl@aonlX.

  • Login to a-onl@aonlX (X=1, 2, 3, 4)
  • once logged in, type gosbs => this takes you to the directory where the analysis should be done, and sets up the correct environment variables.
  • open the analyzer by typing analyzer
  • once in the analyzer type .L replay_gmn.C
  • then type replay_gmn(runnum, firstsplit, nsplits, file_prefix, firstevent, nevents) with
    • runnum being the run number you want to analyze;
    • firstsplit being the , nsplits, file_prefix, firstevent, nevents
    • TODO this list of arguments needs to be rearranged such that it's simpler and more intuitive to use
