Total scattering in RICH

Total scattering was calculated using the formula:

Theta_0 = 13.6 MeV/(beta*c*p) * Z * sqrt(SUM) * {1 + 0.038 * ln(SUM)}
where SUM = sum(x_i / X0_i)
Taking into account electrons, than beta = Z = 1

In the calculation, the polar angle dependant deflection between the perpendicular direction to the surface of the RICH components (shortest distance through the materials) and particle incident angle (real particle path length through the material) was taken into account.

In the following, only the mean deflection to the perpendicular direction of 22.25deg was taken into account to make the pictures simple

Elliptic (circular) vs rectangular matching cut

Area difference between these two cuts is:
  • Rectangular cut: (2*D_phi)*(2*D_theta) = 4*D_theta*D_phi
  • Elliptic cut: pi * D_theta * D_phi
  • Difference = (4 - pi)/4 = 22%


Conversion / Signal from PLUTO simulation

I have compared the 1D distribution for (theta_rich - theta_RK) (in phi it looks similar) for electrons coming from conversion and the electrons coming from all other sources. the conversion signal I have chosen according to the following condition: "pid.genInfo1==7001 || pid.genInfo1==17001 || pid.genInfo1==52001", the "real" signal is negation of the previous condition. the determination of the mean and sigma of the distribution was done with the "standard" 2-gaussian fit for momentum bins (0,150>; (150,350> and (350,1000>

in the picture "compareSim.png" you can see mean and sigma of the delta_theta distributions for the 3 momenta bins. the upper two pictures are done for electrons and positrons separately (red color "real" signal, blue conversion signal). in the lowest picture the comparision between electrons and positrons for the "real" signal is done.

as one can see, the differences in the simulation are only minor. the yields for signal and conversion are comparable (almost 1:1) for momenta (0,150>, it drops to 2:1 for momenta (350,1000> (see thetaNeg.jpg)

The sigma of the delta_theta distributions for negative tracks is:
  • Signal: 0.96, 0.74, 0.54
  • Conversion: 1.01, 0.81, 0.62

The sigma of the delta_theta distributions for positive tracks is:
  • Signal: 1.18, 0.79, 0.60
  • Conversion: 1.12, 0.88, 0.60

==================================================

in phi are the distributions much more narrower:

The sigma of the delta_phi distributions for negative tracks is:
  • Signal: 0.55, 0.47, 0.47
  • Conversion: 0.40, 0.53, 0.56

The sigma of the delta_phi distributions for positive tracks is:
  • Signal: 0.57, 0.49, 0.50
  • Conversion: 0.46, 0.51, 0.40

At this point i have to add, that i set following limits for the fit parameters: for signal is sigma in the range (0.4; 2.0) and for the background (2.0; infinity), which you can see in the fits not very well describing the distributions. in the most cases, the background had sigma of 2.0 in few cases just a touch higher than 2.0! (not a very good model :-(...), since for experimental data this limits worked very well, i decided not to introduce new limits for the fits.

I hope, the selection of the conversion was done properly (according to the documentation i hope i have not overseen something...)
