ACD Carbon Peak calibrations

Purpose and use

To measure the PHA signal for a Carbon Ion at normal incidence for each PMT. This calibration is used in the configuration system to set the signal scale for the CNO thresholds. This calibration is used in reconstruction to express the raw PHA values in terms of MIP equivalent signals and eventually in MeV. This calibration is used in simulation to provide realistic PHA values.

Required inputs

200 or more Carbon ions per tile. Generally 4 days running in nomSciOps configuration. Needs a good high range pedestal calibration.
