Report of the Event Tag Review and Recommendation Group

Description: In order to facilitate access to the large volumes of data (multiple petabytes per year) which will be produced during data taking and Monte Carlo production at ATLAS, work has proceeded on building a system of event-level metadata to allow selections of a subset of events to use as input to an analysis. This was included in the ATLAS Computing Model and was first studied and implemented by the Physics Analysis Tools group based on the decisions of the ESD/AOD Task Force. They used tools developed and supported by the CERN IT group and the ATLAS Database group. During 2005 this structure was put through various tests and evaluations. Also, work by physicists on reconstruction and analysis led to an improved understanding of the requirements on the TAG. This report addresses the effect of these new inputs on the previous work with regard to content and the infrastructure needed to support it.

Root status and future developments

Description: In this talk the authors review the major additions and improvements made to the ROOT system in the last 18 months and present their plans for future developments. The additions and improvements range from modifications to the I/O sub-system to allow users to save and restore objects of classes that have not been instrumented by special ROOT macros, to the addition of a geometry package designed for building, browsing, tracking and visualizing detector geometries. Other improvements include enhancements to the quick analysis sub-system (TTree::Draw()), the addition of classes that allow inter-file object references (TRef, TRefArray), better support for templates and STL classes, amelioration of the Automatic Script Compiler and the incorporation of new fitting and mathematical tools. Efforts have also been made to increase the modularity of the ROOT system with the introduction of more abstract interfaces and the development of a plug-in manager. In the near future, they intend to continue the development of PROOF and its interfacing with GRID environments. They plan on providing an interface between Geant3, Geant4 and Fluka and the new geometry package. The ROOT-GUI classes will finally be available on Windows and they plan to release a GUI inspector and builder. In the last year, ROOT has drawn the endorsement of additional experiments and institutions. It is now officially supported by CERN and used as key I/O component by the LCG project.

Update on Electron-Cloud Simulations Using the Package WARP-POSINST

Description: At PAC05[1] and PAC07[2], we presented the package WARP-POSINST for the modeling of the effect of electron clouds on high-energy beams. We present here the latest developments in the package. Three new modes of operations were implemented: (1) a build-up mode where, similarly to POSINST (LBNL) or ECLOUD (CERN), the build-up of electron clouds driven by a legislated bunch train is modeled in one region of an accelerator; (2) a quasistatic mode where, similarly to HEADTAIL (CERN) or QuickPIC (USC/UCLA), the frozen beam approximation is used to split the modeling of the beam and the electrons into two components evolving on their respective time scales; and (3) a Lorentz boosted mode where the simulation is performed in a moving frame where the space and time scales related to the beam and electron dynamics fall in the same range. The implementation of modes (1) and (2) was primary motivated by the need for benchmarking with other codes, while the implementation of mode (3) fulfills the drive toward fully self-consistent simulations of e-cloud effects on the beam including the build-up phase.

Low temperature quench performance of Fermilab Low-{Beta} insertion quadrupoles

Description: The recently revived superconducting magnet program at Fermilab is currently focused on the development of high gradient quadrupoles for possible use in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) interaction regions at CERN. In order to provide input for the new quadrupole design which will operate in superfluid helium, we have tested a Fermilab Tevatron low-{beta} quadrupole cold mass and compared its low temperature performance to a newly assembled heavily instrumented version which was mechanically modified to take advantage of the gain in critical current.

On transverse mode coupling instability in the VLHC

Description: We present the results of calculation of transverse mode coupling instability (TMCI) thresholds for Very Large Hadron Collider (VLHC). The estimates are done with use of conventional approach and more sophisticated mode dynamics analysis. We found the RF system parameters which allows to get appropriate TMCI threshold number of particles per bunch and attain high luminosity of the collider. Alternative ways to raise the threshold are briefly discussed.

Perturbation of the periodic dispersion under beam crossing optics in LHC

Description: Beam crossing and separation schemes in the LHC interaction regions impose non-zero closed orbit in the low-{beta} triplets. The related perturbative dispersion is derived ; propagation, multi-crossing interference, perturbative effects around the ring are investigated and quantified. Horizontal and vertical compensation schemes are presented.

Correction of vertical crossing induced dispersion in LHC

Description: Beam crossing schemes in the LHC interaction regions impose non-zero vertical closed orbit in the low-{beta} triplets, which excite a perturbative periodic dispersion ; the phenomenon is described and quantified in detail. It is shown that this dispersion reaches values at the limit of tolerances in the nominal optics of Version 5.0 of the LHC ring, and prohibitively large values in particular in the low- {beta} quadrupoles and interaction regions in the foreseen extreme {beta}-squeeze case ({beta}{sup *} = 0.25 m). Such behaviour justifies including a local correction in the LHC design, in order to damp the effect and confine it as much as possible in the vicinity of the excitation sources (the low-{beta} triplets). An optical compensation scheme based on the use of skew quadrupoles is described in detail, as well as the entailed residual dispersion.

Proposal for an aluminum beam screen in the LHC

Description: This paper proposes a cold beam screen made of high strength, high electrical resistivity aluminum alloy (such as A7NOl) as an alternative to the present LHC design that is based on a copper co- laminated high Mn content stainless steel. The main advantages of an aluminum screen are: simple manufacturing processes, low cost, elimination of millions of small slots and of TEM waves, no adhesion problem, no helium leak problem (vacuum tight), non-magnetic, and others. The available aperture is equivalent to the present design when a non-uniform wall thickness is adopted. A prototype was built to demonstrate the design and the end connections. Concerns about the multi-pactoring, electron cloud instability, surface resistance and cryopumping using anodized aluminum will be addressed.

LHC Kicker Beam-Impedance Calculation

Description: Longitudinal and transverse beam impedances are calculated for the injection kickers designed for use in the CERN large hadron col- Iider. These combine the contributions of a ceramic beam tube with conducting stripes and a traveling-wave kicker magnet. The results show peak impedances of 1300 ohm longitudinal and 8 Mfl/m trans- verse for four units per ring.

Strangelet Search at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider

Description: We have searched for strangelets in a triggered sample of 61 million central (top 4percent) Au+Au collisions at sqrt sNN = 200 GeV near beam rapidities at the STAR solenoidal tracker detector at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. We have sensitivity to metastable strangelets with lifetimes of order>_0.1 ns, in contrast to limits over ten times longer in BNL Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) studies and longer still at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS). Upper limits of a few 10-6 to 10-7 per central Au+Au collision are set for strangelets with mass>~;;30 GeV/c2.

Characterizations of a CERN NbTi Reference Wire at LBNL

Description: We report on the measurement of two NbTi reference samples,obtained from CERN through BNL, wire number02R00056A01UX.265. The purposeof these characterizations is two-fold: 1) To establish aninter-laboratory comparisonof short sample tests and analysis betweenLBNL, BNL and Fermilab within the LARP collaboration. Due to differencesin reaction and mounting procedures and their resulting straindifferences, Nb3Sn is not suited for this purpose. 2) To determine theaccuracy of LBNL's system with regard to magnetic field, temperature andcurrent after a major system overhaul. The results show that at mu0H = 8T, the critical current result falls within the standard deviation of theCERN database, whereas at mu0H = 5 T, it falls outside the CERN standarddeviation, but within the range of critical current values that arereported by CERN for this wire. It is concluded that the LBNL resultsfall within the characterization variance as reported in the CERNdatabase.

LHC crab-cavity aspects and strategy

Description: The 3rd LHC Crab Cavity workshop (LHC-CC09) took place at CERN in October 2009. It reviewed the current status and identified a clear strategy towards a future crab-cavity implementation. Following the success of crab cavities in KEK-B and the strong potential for luminosity gain and leveling, CERN will pursue crab crossing for the LHC upgrade. We present a summary and outcome of the variousworkshop sessions which have led to the LHC crab-cavity strategy, covering topics like layout, cavity design, integration, machine protection, and a potential validation test in the SPS.

Long-range and head-on beam-beam compensation studies in RHIC with lessons for the LHC

Description: Long-range as well as head-on beam-beam effects are expected to limit the LHC performance with design parameters. They are also important consideration for the LHC upgrades. To mitigate long-range effects, current carrying wires parallel to the beam were proposed. Two such wires are installed in RHIC where they allow studying the effect of strong long-range beam-beam effects, as well as the compensation of a single long-range interaction. The tests provide benchmark data for simulations and analytical treatments. Electron lenses were proposed for both RHIC and the LHC to reduce the head-on beam-beam effect. We present the experimental long-range beam-beam program at RHIC and report on head-on compensations studies based on simulations.

A calculation of the dynamic aperture of the LHC

Description: The dynamic aperture for version 5.1, with a 300{mu}r crossing angle at IP1 and IP5, of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) lattice has been estimated using the tracking code TEVLAT. The dynamic aperture calculated here is due to the magnetic field errors in the high gradient quadrupoles (MQX) in the two low-{beta} interaction regions at IR1 and IR5. No errors were assigned to the magnets in the arc regions of the lattice, nor were beam-beam effects incorporated. The dynamic aperture is expressed in terms of the {sigma} of the beam corresponding to the beam emittance of 3.75mm mr. With only short term tracking, the combined effect of the multipoles and the crossing angle is to yield an average (over multipole coefficients generated with 100 different seeds) dynamic aperture of {approx} 11.7 {plus_minus} 1.2{sigma}.
