    Abstract

    The response of scintillation counters in an ionization calorimeter to incident protons of momenta 3.5 to 200 GeV/c was simulated using the CALOR computer code system. Results of the simulation are compared with data taken at Brookhaven National Laboratory for 3.5- and 10-GeV/c protons and at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory for 50-, 100- and 278-GeV hadrons. Mechanisms which produce large pulse heights for low-energy incident particles are discussed.
