A small quartz fiber calorimeter prototype with copper absorber has been assembled and tested at ITEP as a first test of a "0 degree" component of the RD-40 R&D program. Calibration and monitoring of each tower response was performed using the positions of single photoelectron peaks as well as the response to minimum ionizing particles incident at an angle of 45°. The response of the prototype to 4 GeV electrons as a function of beam angle with respect to the quartz fibers was studied in the range from 0° to 90°. The test results are compared to the GEANT based Monte Carlo (MC) simulations. © 1995.
