1GoalsMeasure DVCS and p0 electroproduction cross sections at different Q off proton and neutron.

Two beam energies:- Separate DVCS.BH and |DVCS| terms.- Separate L/T of p0 cross sections.

G3-G4 in relatively good agreement

G4 Simulation package 5Calorimeter calibrationFirst step: block calibration coefficients are determined using elastic runs (proton in HRS, electron in the calo). (A. Marti)

Second step: gain variations can be monitored and corrected day-by-day using e N -> e N p0 (C. Desnault M. Ben Ali)

Missing mass eN->e p0 X and invariant mass of the two photons in the calorimeter (GeV)6C. Desnault

* Before calibration* After calibrationCalorimeter calibrationMissing and invariant mass much more stable after calibration!!7NormalizationNormalization studies through Deep Inelastic Scattering cross section extraction.

-> Quality control, run-by-run

-> Quality of the normalization (corrections, charge calculation,)

Multitrack events in HRSBetween 5 and 10% of multitrack events Failure of the tracking -> remove them and apply a correction

BUT they are not all electron events: down to a 3% correction (max)E2 GeV in 2 tracks: Electrons10HRS acceptanceFirst kinematics was run without collimator.

5 other kinematics were run with the collimator.

1 weekBCM problemNext Adapt the R-function and/or find a suitable set of cuts to compute the HRS acceptance.

Compare DIS results with theoretical value (F2 parametrization).
