Other Possible Measurements

In addition to leading edge timing, it has been suggested that several other quantities could be measured from the MDT signals. Trailing Edge timing can identify the bunch crossing 1. Multi-Track separation can be potentially accomplished using strong pole/zero shaping, and finally a Pulse-Height measurement can be used for offline time walk corrections. These techniques were all described previously[1] [6]; updated simulation information is presented here.
