Using the most recent DCOPS calibration file I created a CSV file of only the interesting stuff for this exercise. DCOPSCalibReduced.csv
I noticed that applyCalib.awk did not seem to use these numbers. So I stripped out the calibration information and used strip.awk to create insert.awk using
awk -F, -f strip.awk DCOPSCalibReduced.csv >insert.awkand then stuffed insert.awk into the applyCalib.awk framework.
Recall that appying the corrections to ME+2/SLM1 provided very clean clustering: will the new corrections do the same?
|DCOPS||Old up-down||New up-down|
These aren't anything like each other--the chance of tight clustering seems miniscule. So where did the old numbers come from if they are simultaneously so good and bad?
If I compare the old and the new difference "up-down" calibration number, I get something alarming, as can be seen below. Something is reversed in the calibration, and there's a systematic offset. Reversals are easy: all I have to do is mix up 1x(=up) and 3x(=down). The offset is unexpected. It isn't large, but it is very clean.
The oldest reference in these notes to this file is from 8-Oct-2009

The one in utilities seems to have the same calibrations as the new one I made today. That's encouraging.
When I use the new calibrations, the up-down difference is significantly worse:
|DLC range||Nentries||up-down mean||up-down RMS|
UPDATE: sign taken from the file for U/D corrections is wrong (except for MAB calibrations)
Question: do I have the right virtual dowels defined? I think so as described here
