The DAQ and Trigger Systems for the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment
Presented by Prof. Christopher WHITE on 11 Jun 2011 from 15:00 to 15:30
Type: Oral Presentation
Session: Trigger and DAQ Systems
Track: Trigger and Data Acquisition Systems
The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment will consist of seventeen separate detector subsystems distributed in three underground experimental halls. There will be eight PMT based anti-neutrino detectors (ADs), six water-Cherenkov detectors, and three RPC detector subsystems. Each will be readout using an independent VME crate with a self-contained trigger. A master trigger module will be deployed in each detector hall that will process and issue trigger signals between VME crates, as well as external trigger signals. A system overview will be presented along with design and performance details for the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment DAQ and trigger systems.
