An iron-scintillator tile calorimeter with tower readout geometry was constructed for the photoproduction experiment FOCUS (E831) at Fermilab. This experiment ran in the 1996-1997 Fermilab-fixed target program using a wide band photon beam with an average energy of 170 GeV. The hadron calorimeter was used in an online trigger. A description of this tile sampling calorimeter is given and its performance described.

Abstract

An iron-scintillator tile calorimeter with tower readout geometry was constructed for the photoproduction experiment FOCUS (E831) at Fermilab. This experiment ran in the 1996-1997 Fermilab-fixed target program using a wide band photon beam with an average energy of 170 GeV. The hadron calorimeter was used in an online trigger. A description of this tile sampling calorimeter is given and its performance described.
