HPS 2015


HPS Collaboration
October 26-28, 2015
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility
Newport News, VA

Meeting Room F113


The Heavy Photon Search Experiment successfully installed, commissioned, and ran in Hall B at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility during CEBAF’s 2015 Spring Run. HPS ran until May 18 thanks to a two week extension granted by the lab. This extension led to the first HPS data taking with a fully functioning detector, design spec beams, design currents, and triggers and data rates, and the SVT in design position, just ½ mm from the beams. All aspects of the experiment worked very well, and in the end roughly 2 PAC days of 1 GeV data were taken at the ½ mm setting.  The engineering run was a great success.

At this collaboration meeting we will discuss the progress of data analysis, run plan for the next beam run, and possible future upgrades to the HPS detector.
