Detailed test of the CsI(Tl) calorimeter for BELLE with photon beams of energy between 20 MeV and 5.4 GeV
The results of a beam test of a prototype of the BELLE CsI(Tl) calorimeter are reported. The test used beams of photons with energies spanning the range from 20 MeV to 5.4 GeV, produced at ROKK-1M facility of the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics. The single-counter energy-equivalent noise was measured to be approx. 200 keV. The design goals for the energy resolution, e.g. 4% at 20 MeV and 1.7% at 5.4 GeV, were achieved using the sum of energy deposits in a 5 × 5 crystal matrices with a single crystal energy threshold of 0.5 MeV; the summed energy deposit measured in the array corresponds to 97 ± 2% of the incident photon energy over the entire energy range. The average position resolution for 470 MeV energy photons was measured to be 8 mm.
