1. Muon target + magnet
A detailed plan on the polarised target (+ solenoid), as a function of time, including the costs of the different parts, and the laboratory responsibilities in following the construction, testing the pieces and assembling them.
2. Tracking chambers
A more detailed description of the chambers, especially an evaluation of the performances required by the physics (ex. resolution, calibration and alignment errors necessary to get M = 10 MeV in ). Details on the calibration strategy and alignment, especially for the consequences in the chamber design. An assessment on the possibility to make prototypes. A plan on the manpower necessary to build, calibrate and operate the chambers, including laboratory responsibilities.
Comments on prototypes (i.e. what has to be tested each year), plans on the availability of manpower/resources for construction, including lab. responsibilities. Comments on the possibility of replacing RICH1 with threshold Cherenkov(s) (maybe keep this possibility as a possible contingency?).
4. Muon walls
Comments on the choice of the detector techniques, i.e. performances required by the physics vs. detector features, costs and available resources and expertise. Time scale and responsibilities in the construction.
5. Calorimeter Readout
ADC resolution: Assuming a 12-bit dynamical range (instead of 13-bit), what would be the resulting deterioration (e.g. in mass resolution, S/B)? Would there be a noticeable impact on the physics results, and -if yes- on which results?
6. Silicon Strips
7. Data Acquisition
8. Offline Analysis - Scheme
Using the charm spectroscopy setup, COMPASS will write about 50 DLT-7000 tapes (30 GB each) per day, over a period of 100 days or more. Could you describe:
