Task #8808: Get details of what we can get from the beam spill and timing
Contact Zarko Pavlovic about beam timing signals.
email sent to Zarko Pavlovic [firstname.lastname@example.org]:
I’m working on ANNIE and Matthew Wetstein suggested I contact you about getting precision timing of the BNB extraction.
As I see it, we need to get two separate signals:
1. An edge at SciBooNE Hall that precedes the beam spill with a fixed delay with precision of <1us. (or something that can be converted to the same.)
2. A high-bandwidth signal proportional to the protons on target to record the detailed time-structure of the beam with ns-level absolute timing precision/accuracy relative to GPS/UTC. This will be used offline, so it can be recorded anywhere convenient.
Can you help me figure out how to get these signals, or who to talk to about them?
