MEG-II Drfit Chamber calibration and monitoring system
Calibrating the drift chamber is crucial to reach the target MEG-II sensitivity. The activity of this thesis is mainly software and consists in the development and in the implementation of the calibration algorithms of temporal offsets, gains, time-to-distance relation, alignment. These will be devoloped on simulations and tested on the first data, foreseen for Spring 2018. Also monitoring tools, to guarantee the online control of the chamber functionality need to be implemented.
MEG-II Drift Chamber commissioning
The thesis consists in the participation to the 2018 commissioning run and in the analysis of the first data, in particular in relation with the optimization of the working point of the chamber and in the data quality control.
Research of the dark photon with the MEG-II detector
The Cockroft-Walton accelerator utilized for the liquid Xenon calibration can be used to verify the presence of an excess of events at a mass of 16.7 MeV observed at the ATOMKI laboratory. This excess could be interpreted as a dark photon. The thesis consists in the optimization of the experimental setup on the basis of simulations, in the realization of an ultra-thin target for the CW and in the participation to the measurement in 2018.
