Study of the Response Uniformity of Scintillator Tiles for Highly Granular Calorimeters

A modern trend in calorimetry is an increase in calorimeter granularity. A high-granularity hadron calorimeter assembled from scintillator tiles with signal readout by silicon photomultipliers is developed and tested by the CALICE collaboration. The uniformity of the tile response to minimum ionizing particles is studied, and these experimental measurements are compared with simulation based on the Geant4 package.
