A short introduction

A fine granularity calorimeter with large number of segmentation is proposed as the best solution for the energy flow, lepton identification, photon reconstruction with good precision on energy and direction. On the other side, the coil thicknes is bigger than usal due to the 4 Tesla field needed to maintain the machine background close to the beam pipe. Therefore , the ECAL has to be very compact.

Such a calorimeter could be made of Tungsten-Silicon sandwich. With pad of 1x1 cm and 40 layers, this is a quasi bubble-chamber for the electromagnetic shower.
For this reason, this device is called A TRACKER CALORIMETER . It gives a clean picture of all energy flow objects in all type of events. This solution offers a lot of advantages, compacity,stability, etc.. the main one is the redundancy on the em shower informations. Simulation using GEANT4 lead to think of an energy resolution on electron/photon in the region of Delta E /E = 11% / sqrt(E)
