Because of the poor statistics we need to use a chain
of runs taken in same conditions (experimental setup)
and same beam energies.

The quantity (Tleft – Tright )/2 has the same variation as
(Tleft + Tright )/2 but time jitter cancelled out, so the intrinsic time
resolution of the bar could be evaluated more conveniently from
its distribution.

Time of Flight and Time-walk effect
• Because leading edge discriminator has been
used for the time measurements, the time-walk
effect should occur.
• Time-walk should effect measured TOF
especially in cases when we have different total
charge collected in the bars.
• This effect can be suppressed by constrain on
difference in ADC pulse heights (signals with
same pulse heights will give approximately same
time-walk).

Conclusions
• Intrinsic resolution of the bars made of BC404 or BC420
is satisfactory. BC 408 is significantly worse.
• Passive splitter gives better performance than active.
• TDC V775 gives a little bit better results than V1290.
• We need more detailed investigation of the relation
between intrinsic time resolution and position of the
impact point.
• The effect of time-walk is significant and should be
corrected for.
