Title: Trigger Rate of High Energy Electrons in the Mu2e Experiment

Abstract

aThe Mu2e Collaboration will look for Charged Lepton Flavor Violation (CLFV) decay processes, with a sensitivity goal of 10E-17. The experiment is searching for a 105 MeV electron, which will be detected using a straw tracker solenoid and a crystal calorimeter. With a goal processing time of less than 5 milliseconds per event and a target rejection greater than 100, it is critical that the trigger software is optimized for speed and performance. The trigger is responsible for parsing data from the detector and determining which events to keep. By examining the properties CLFV event helices are expected to have, a specific set of parameters, or cuts, were used to create Mu2e triggering algorithms. The following research is an investigation into the efficiency of the trigger and a calculation of the rate at which these events will be triggered. With the combined contribution of two helix reconstruction algorithms, the trigger will be expected to accept approximately on e CLFV candidate electron event per second, with a triggering rate of .86 Hz.
