Trigger configuration

(Includes all recent fixes to trigger emulator configuration/software)
emulated L2E-gamma trigger for Run 2006 [eemc-http-mb-l2gamma:: id 137641]
Trigger conditions:
cluster Et (3x3) = 5.2GeV
seed Et = 3.7GeV

Accept/Reject relative to the total number of offline selected events

Definition: offline selected events are events which satisfy to the following conditions:

  • Online condition (L2E-gamma trigger fired)
  • Reconstructed vetrex (|v_z|<120cm)
  • Offline condition (at least one gammaMaker candidate found)

Figure 2:
(upper plots) Gamma candidate yields vs. candidate pt (all partonic pt bins, no pt weights)
(lower plots) False rejection [histograms in the upper panel scaled by L2E-gamma-trigger yield (shown in blue)]
StEEmcSlowMaker configured with +5% (scale factor=1.05) gain shifts and 0.1 sigma
Previous plots: 125K events per pt-bin, 250K/pt-bin
(figure below combines previous statisitcs + 18K for partonic pt=6-9 and pt=9-15 GeV bins)
