Abstract

The KLOE experiment uses a fine sampling lead-scintillating fibre calorimeter to measure energy, time and position of neutral and charged particles. The overall detector consists of 88 modules organised in a barrel and two end-caps, for a total granularity of 2440 cells, read-out by photo-multipliers at both fibre ends. The chosen design of a high sampling fraction with the usage of thin lead layers and fast scintillating fibres allows to reach good efficiency for photon energies down to few MeV, good energy resolution and excellent time resolution. The design, calibration and performances of the calorimeter on efficiency, time/position/energy resolution and particle identification is reviewed. The overall calorimeter impact on kaon tagging and on physics results is also presented. (c) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
