We exposed a prototype of the high-sampling lead-scintillating fiber KLOE calorimeter to neutron beam of 21, 46, and 174 MeV, provided by the The Svedberg Laboratory (TSL), Uppsala, to study its neutron detection efficiency. This has been found larger than what what expected considering the scintillator thickness of the KLOE prototype only.We checked the… CONTINUE READING
