Abstract

Abstract Data on the longitudinal and transverse shower profiles initiated by 10, 20, 30, 50, 75, and 100 GeV positive hadron beams are presented. They have been measured with a 6λ deep sampling hadronic calorimeter using 3.2 mm thick depleted uranium plates as absorber and 3.0 mm scintillator layers as active material. The scintillator is read out with wavelength shifter plates coupled to photomultipliers. The data are compared to Monte Carlo calculations, simulating both the development of hadronic cascades as well as detector effects.
