Many acronyms are defined in in Appendix B (p.154) of the TDR (Technical Design Report) and in this Glossary.

  • ADC = Analogue Digital Conversion - integer measurement of charge
  • ACC = Analysis Coordination Committee
  • ACU = Automated Calibration Unit
  • AD = Antineutrino Detector
  • AV = Acrylic Vessel (of AD)
  • BCW = ?
  • BO = Beneficial Occupancy
  • CBLT = Chained BLock Transfer
  • CFB = Clock Fan-out Board - part of the clock system
  • CMT = software Configuration Management Tool

  • CWG = Calibration Working Group
  • DAQ = Data AcQuisition System
  • DCS = Detector Control System (aka Slow Control)
  • DMC = Decoupled Multiplicity Cut, see DYB-doc-7280.
  • DQWG = Data Quality Working Group
  • DST = Data Summary Tape (or file)
  • EH1 = Experimental Hall 1 = Daya Bay Hall
  • FEC = Front End Card (for RPC)
  • FEE = Front End Electronics (for PMT)
  • FMCP = Fast Monte Carlo Production (see MDC)
  • Hall4 = Water purification hall
  • Hall5 = Scintillator Mixing hall
  • HPSS = High Performance Storage System (tape robot system)
  • IAV = Inner Acrylic Vessel
  • IBD = Inverse Beta Decay
  • INWG = Cosmogenic Isotopes and Neutrons Working Group
  • IWP = Inner Water Pool = IWS
  • IWS = Inner Water Shield
  • KUP = Keep-UP Production (Which means to provide reconstruction data as fast as we can, for people do calibration, data quality, and quick data analysis.)
  • LAB = Linear AlkylBenzene = base for our liquid scintillator
  • LED = Light Emitting Diode
  • LIM = Local Installation Manager
  • LS = liquid scintillator
  • LSO = Local Safety Officer
  • LTB = Local Trigger Board
  • MCS = Manual Calibration System
  • MDC = Mock Data Challenge
  • MO = Mineral Oil
  • MTB = Master Trigger Board

  • PMT = PhotoMultiplier Tube
  • PPE = Personal Protective Equipment
  • PQM = Physics Quality Monitor
  • Pre-ADC = An ADC taken just before the signal crosses threshold, a measure of the pedestal. It is the average of 4 samples. It is not strictly a pedestal but can be a good approximation.
  • PWG = ?Production? Working Group
  • RACF = RHIC/ATLAS Computing Facility (Linux Cluster at BNL)
