Glasgow SiD howto

The starting point is the sidloi3 model in lcgeo implemented by F. Gaede and based on the original sidloi3 compact file. This was tested by simulating single muons and reconstructing them (see lcgeo/example/run_sid_reco.xml).

Building the model

The model is using the generic detector drivers in DD4hep. For the calorimeters (Ecal/Hcal) the current (Oct 2015) CLIC drivers were used in order to have the DDRec extensions that will eventually be needed by DDMarlinPandora.


To compile, from the local lcgeo/ directory:

source /cvmfs/
export PATH=/cvmfs/$PATH
make -C build -j4 install

To check the geometry:

source ../
source ../dd4hep/bin/
source bin/
geoDisplay SiD/compact/sidloi3/sidloi3_v00.xml

then from root prompt

root [1] gGeoManager->CheckOverlaps(0.01);
Info in <TGeoNodeMatrix::CheckOverlaps>: Checking overlaps for world_volume and daughters within 0.01
Check overlaps:      [==========]  129404 [100.00 %]           01
Info in <TGeoNodeMatrix::CheckOverlaps>: Number of illegal overlaps/extrusions : 6

Checking simulation+reconstruction chain

From lcgeo:

source /cvmfs/
Marlin example/run_sid_reco.xml

Implementing custom SiD ECal drivers

The initial implementations uses GenericCalBarrel_o1_v01 and GenericCalEndcap_o1_v01 drivers.
