Abstract

The electromagnetic barrel calorimeter is one of the main components of the planned GlueX experiment. It will consist of 48 modules made of consecutive layers of 4 m long lead sheet and fast green scintillator fibers for an overall number of approximately 3000 readout channels with silicon photomultiplier-based photo-sensors for light collection. The calorimeter is expected to achieve energy and time resolution better than 5%/sqrt(E)+2% and 200 ps, respectively. In this contribution we present an overview of the calorimeter design and some preliminary studies of its performance using Monte Carlo simulations and beam test measurements.
