A calorimeter with 180 plastic scintillator bars interleaved with 180 iron
bars has been built and tested xith pion and electron beams at CERN. The pl
astic scintillator bars, coupled to wavelength shifting fibers, are read wi
th multi-anode PMTs and Amplitude-Time-Pattern self-triggering digitizing e
lectronics. This type of calorimeter could be well suited for the construct
ion of large, many kton detectors fur neutrino oscillation experiments on t
he CERN to Gran Sasso CNGS beam or for the neutrino factory. (C) 2001 Elsev
