Da${\Phi}$ne developments for the KLOE-2 experimental run

Source: arXiv


Recently the peak luminosity achieved on the DA{\Phi}NE collider has been improved by almost a factor three by implementing a novel collision scheme based on large Piwinski angle and Crab-Waist. This encouraging result opened new perspectives for physics research and a new run with the KLOE-2 detector has been scheduled to start by spring 2010. The KLOE-2 installation is a complex operation requiring a careful design effort and a several months long shutdown. The high luminosity interaction region has been deeply revised in order to take into account the effect on the beam caused by the solenoidal field of the experimental detector and to ensure background rejection. The shutdown has been also used to implement several other modifications aimed at improving beam dynamics: the wiggler poles have been displaced from the magnet axis in order to cancel high order terms in the field, the feedback systems have been equipped with stronger power supplies and more efficient kickers and electrodes have been inserted inside the wiggler and the dipole vacuum chambers, in the positron ring, to avoid the e-cloud formation. A low level RF feedback has been added to the cavity control in both rings. Comment: 3 pages, 3 figures, presented to the IPAC10 conference

    ABSTRACT: The neutral kaon system offers a unique possibility to perform fundamental tests of CPT invariance. In this contribution the KLOE prospects for the measurements of CPT violation in the context of the Standard Model Extension are presented together with a full description of the analysis method needed and with the perspective given by the KLOE-2 data-taking campaign.

    ABSTRACT: In its continuous evolution DAFNE, the Frascati lepton collider, is starting a new run for the KLOE-2 detector, an upgraded version of the KLOE one. A new interaction region, based on the high luminosity Crab-Waist collision scheme, has been designed, built and installed. Several machine subsystems have been revised according innovative design concepts in order to improve beam dynamics. Collimators and detector shields have been upgraded in order to minimize the background hitting the experimental apparatus during coasting as well as injection operation. A wide measurement campaign has been undertaken to verify and quantify the effect of the modifications and to tune-up the collider in view of the 3 years long data-taking that should deliver ~ 5 fb -1 to the KLOE-2 experiment.

    ABSTRACT: The neutral kaon system offers a unique possibility to perform fundamental tests of fundamental symmetry such CP and CPT invariance. In this contribution two KLOE measurements are shown: the upper limit on the branching fraction for K S → 3π 0 and the CPT symmetry test in the Standard Model Extension framework in association with Lorentz Invariance breaking. Preliminary results are reported for both measurements: BR(K S → 3π 0) < 2.9 × 10 −8 @90%C.L.,∆a X = (−6.3 ± 6.0) × 10 −18 GeV, ∆a Y = (2.8 ± 5.9) × 10 −18 GeV, ∆a Z = (2.4 ± 9.7) × 10 −18 GeV. The results on SME parameters (∆a µ) are based on half of the total KLOE statistics. In this contribution a novel method for this analysis will be also discussed. A brief description of the future plans for the KLOE-2 project will be given. 1. The KLOE experiment The KLOE experiment operates at DAΦNE, the Frascati φ –factory. DAΦNE is an e + e − collider running at a center of mass energy of ∼1020 MeV, the mass of the φ meson. Positron and electron beams collide at an angle of π-25 mrad, producing φ mesons with small momentum in the orbit plane (p x (φ) ∼ −15 MeV). The KLOE detector consists of a large cylindrical drift chamber (DC) surrounded by a lead-scintillating fiber electromagnetic calorimeter (EMC). A super-conducting coil around the EMC provides a 0.52 T axial field. The DC[1] is 4 m in diameter and 3.3 m long and has 12,582 all-stereo tungsten sense wires. The chamber shell is made of carbon fiber-epoxy composite and the gas used is a 90% helium, 10% isobutane mixture. These features maximize transparency to photons and reduce K L →K S regeneration and multiple scattering. The position resolutions for single hits are σ r,φ ∼150 µm and σ z ∼2 mm almost omogeneus in the sensible area. Those performancies results in a decay vertex position resolution ranging between 3–6 mm in the entire KLOE internal volume. The momentum resolution is σ (p ⊥)/p ⊥ ∼ 0.4%. The calorimeter[2] is divided into a barrel and two end-caps, and covers 98% of the solid an-gle. The modules are read-out at both ends by photo-multipliers, both in amplitude and time for a total of 2440 cells per side arranged in five layers. Cells close in time and space are grouped into calorimeter clusters. The cluster energy E is the sum of the cell energies. The cluster time T and po-sition R are energy-weighed averages. Energy and time resolutions are σ E /E = 5.7%/ E(GeV) and σ t = 57ps/ E(GeV) ⊕ 100 ps, respectively. During KLOE data taking DAΦNE beam conditions and detectors calibrations are constantly monitored in order to guarantee the highest quality of the collected data. Actually KLOE has already acquired 2.5 fb −1 of data and a new extensive campaign of data taking is starting under the project KLOE-2[9]. The production cross section for the process e + e − →φ is 3.3 µb and the φ meson decays into K 0 K 0 with a branching fraction of ∼34%. The initial state of the kaon pair is produced via strong interaction with quantum numbers J PC = 1 −− : |i = |K 0 0 − |K 0 0 √ 2 = N (|K S (p) L (− p) − |K S (− p) L (p) (1.1)
