July 31:

  • downloaded and looked through all 457 camera images from run 328555

  • ran the list of events from run 328867 with more than 5 splits - most of these events have a much lower baseline pixel brightness than events from run 328555
    • events 100001, 100018, and 100044 stand out - they have a much higher baseline pixel brightness than the rest of the events from run 328867, as well as a bright patch in two lower left modules

  • worked on draft of final status update/presentation

July 28:

  • attended Chris Tenzer summer colloquium

  • ran another 50 events through the camera image script, looked through all camera images
    • pretty much all images follow the same trends as the first 50

  • event 262378 has a pretty uniform background, with one very bright pixel ~360 photoelectrons
 

July 27:

July 27:

  • vast majority of these events seem to be noise

  • a couple of interesting things:
    • in two of the events, half of every module is dead - unsure what's going on there
    • one of the events is not noise - event 261831
