PANDA beamtime at COSY successfully completed
we completed a very successful testbeam time at COSY on Sunday, February 24th, 2019. Spokespersons for the beamtime were Greg Korcyl and Rafal Lalik from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. Following detectors were set up in the beamline with a total length of about 8 m (Photo: P.Wintz, FZ Jülich GmbH, beam enters from the right):
- PANDA FT modules
- PANDA EMC testsystem
- PANDA TOF testscintillator
- PANDA DAQ with Sodanet/TRB for FT&EMC
Setups In parasitic mode
- PANDA Lumi test
- SiPM test setup (FRS/GSI)
- Straws with ADC readout
We had a proton beam of 2.5 GeV/c momentum (almost minimum ionising) and varied intensities and beam profiles for the FT tests.
Many thanks to the COSY crew for the quick beam set up and stable operation, so that we could exploit 10 days of beam time (7 requested). I was told that all six groups were very pleased with the beamtime, although spending both sunny Julich weekends in the cave.
