Abstract

Beam tests of a hybrid dual-readout calorimeter are described. The electromagnetic section of this instrument consists of 100 BGO crystals and the hadronic section is made of copper in which two types of optical fibers are embedded. The electromagnetic fraction of hadronic showers developing in this calorimeter system is estimated event by event from the relative amounts of Cherenkov light and scintillation light produced in the shower development. The benefits and limitations of this detector system for the detection of showers induced by single hadrons and by multiparticle jets are investigated. Effects of side leakage on the detector performance are also studied. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
