Abstract:
This note looks at test data for plan B for the Tevatron BPM upgrade, measurement of the Pbar position by gating the electronics to acquire data only when Pbars are present but protons are absent. The data from April~8 are discussed in detail, showing many fine structures at various phases of a shot. This work uncovered a problem with the Pbar resolution which was ultimately traced to a problem with the filters used on the Pbar cables. It is also shown that the problem can be solved by adding appropriate filters. The note concludes with a list of open questions, the most important of which is understanding and eliminating a large step in the proton position. The step is probably an artifact of the details of the timing used for this test and can be addressed in several ways.
