Abstract

A new type of thin multiwire proportional chamber detector operating in a high gain mode has been developed. Its characteristics have been optimized for calorimetric use. Two setups consisting of ten such detectors (electromagnetic calorimeter) interlaced with lead plates of 6 mm thickness and with iron plates of 8 cm thickness (hadron calorimeter) were tested. The characteristics of these detectors operating in calorimetric environments have been investigated and compared with theoretical expectations.
