Abstract

The electromagnetic calorimeter of the HERA-B experiment built at the HERA proton accelerator at DESY (Hamburg) is described. The construction characteristics of the detector, of the related front-end, readout, trigger and service electronics are discussed together with the constraints and the motivations which inspired the design philosophy. The detector performance are presented as obtained from the analysis of the data acquired during the HERA-B running period, including calibration procedures and achievements and the electron identification capability exploiting a method, proposed here for the first time, based on the observation of the associated bremsstrahlung γ. Finally, some observed physical signals and a short overview of the main obtained physics results are presented.
