Media:KK's MOLLER Task List.pdf

Tasks for Simulation Subsystem to track:

1) LA Tech and SBU -- Simulation/Shielding and Activation : Optimizing the shielding design and develop first order practical design that can be passed to engineers, Radiation load on target clam-shell (o-ring) and magnet coils, Activation studies for various components.
2) Wouter -- Pion Simulation (Muon Pair Production): could be significant for pion detector
3) TBD -- Detectors/Simulation (Slit scattering bkgd): Comprehensive note summarizing the elimination of all 1-bounce and leading 2-bounce sources
4) Seamus and Yury -- General/Simulation (Radiative corrections for all physics processes): Incorporate radiative corrections for e-e and inelastic e-p scattering
5) Pion and Simulation Group -- Simulation/Pion (Hyperon background estimation): Strategy to evaluate the hyperon bkgd using full suite of detectors
6) David and Seamus -- Simulation/Tracking (Optics collimator for Q2): simulated Q2 analysis and the use of tracking GEMs and special collimation


Tasks which overlap with Integrating Detector Subsystem:

7) Pion Group -- Pion Simulation (Beamdump bkgd impact): beamdump bkgds may affect some detectors
8) Manitoba and SBU -- Detectors/Simulation (PMT backgrounds): Comprehensive estimate of all bkgds at the main detector PMTs
9) UVA Group -- Detector/Simulation (Main detector geometries): Optimize radial and azimuthal ring dimensions to optimize background asymmetry correction determination and systematic (Yuxiang's approach)
10) UVA Group -- Simulation (PMT double difference): From Qweak experience, evaluate upper limit to possible systematic from A_T in showerMax and thin quartz
11) SBU Group Detectors/Simulation (ShowerMax splashback): Estimate possible bkgds in main detector PMTs from shmx splashback
12) SBU Group -- Detectors/Simulation (Detector shielding optimization): Figure out the configuration of heavy- and light-Z shielding (First need shielding Geometry)
13) SBU Group -- Detectors/Simulation (Crosstalk evaluation): Evaluate impact on specific detector measurements of bkgd from other sources


  1. Discuss phase change in meeting schedule. Our next meeting could be Nov 9 (maybe too soon after Director Review Task Meeting) or December 7 (note that Nov 23 is Thanksgiving)
  2. Director's Review task tracking updates
