EUTelescope And IBL Testbeam pages


Glasgow work on ATLAS Inner B-Layer (IBL) testbeam data. Both Reconstruction and Analysis aspects of the work involve EUTelescope software. Please see the official pages pages for more details. A communal area with installed software and testfiles can be found: /data/detdev01/FEI4_testbeam_construction.

NB This page is a work in progress.

Testbeam Reconstruction

Reconstruction code can be found: /data/detdev01/FEI4_testbeam_construction/reconstruction.

This is a short recipe for running.

* First set the environment.

> ILCSOFT=/data/detdev01/FEI4_testbeam_construction/reconstruction/PATH_TO_SOFTWARE
> source

To check the environment has been set correctly check the EUTELESCOPE parameter has been set: > echo $EUTELESCOPE
This should be something like /PATH_TO_SOFTWARE/v01-16-02/Eutelescope/v00-08-02

* Next, go to the jobsub directory:

> cd $EUTELESCOPE/jobsub

You are now ready to run the reconstruction chain. There are five steps or "tasks" to transform raw data into analysis ready data: converter, clustering, hitmaker, alignment and filter. Each task is performed using the script and requires a condifuration file to set basic steering parameters such as input file, output directories and beam energy. The basic execution format is


Here is an example analysis chain:

> ./ --config=$EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/config.cfg -csv $EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/runlist.csv converter 97
> ./ --config=$EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/config.cfg -csv $EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/runlist.csv clustering 97
> ./ --config=$EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/config.cfg -csv $EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/runlist.csv hitmaker 97
> ./ --config=$EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/config.cfg -csv $EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/runlist.csv align 97
> ./ --config=$EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/config.cfg -csv $EUTELECOPE/jobsub/examples/datura-noDUT/runlist.csv fitter 97

For ease of running a bash script called is supplied which will run the chain for you. Please edit the parameters at the top of the file.
