The response of pions and protons in the energy range of 20 to 180 GeV produced at CERN’s SPS H8 test beam line in the ATLAS iron-scintillator Tile hadron calorimeter has been measured. The test-beam configuration allowed to measure the longitudinal shower development for pions and protons up to 20 nuclear interaction lengths. It is found that pions… CONTINUE READING
