Abstract

The performance of the RD52 dual-readout calorimeter is measured for very small angles of incidence between the 20 GeV electron beam particles and the direction of the fibers that form the active elements of this calorimeter. The calorimeter response is observed to be independent of the angle of incidence for both the scintillating and the Čerenkov fibers, whereas significant differences are found between the angular dependence of the energy resolution measured with these two types of fibers. The experimental results are on crucial points at variance with the predictions of GEANT4 Monte Carlo simulations.
