COMPASS Run 2007

Beam in 2007 : from May 26 to November 11


The 2007 beam is scheduled for first delivery on Saturday, May 26. Latest news: the SPS is well in time and the beam could even be available earlier.  Compass should then close the area and give about 2 days to Lau Gatignon for beam line tuning.

The 2007 beam time extends to November 11, 2007.  A one week SPS scrubbing run is scheduled between June 11 and June 18.

The COMPASS Target



An electronic logbook is used to keep track of all information related to data taking. For the moment, the original is only available from CERN. However a mirror is also visible outside with password.
The trigger rates can be followed also outside the Compass domain, on this link.


The data are transferred to the computing centre via network and recorded on the central tape system (using CASTOR storage manager). This system is known as Central Data Recording (CDR).
