概要 We are developing the CALET mission to observe high energy cosmic rays at the Japanese Experiment
Module/Exposed Facility (JEM/EF) on the International Space Station. The instrument will be flown in 2013, and will be
used for 5 years. The primary scientific purpose of CALET is to search for nearby cosmic ray sources and dark matter.
We carried out an accelerator beam test with high energy particles with the CALET prototype at the CERN-SPS. The
purpose of this test was to assess the detector performance as well as to study the accuracy of the Monte Carlo simulation
method. The prototype detector consists of an imaging calorimeter with 256 scintillating fibers and a total absorption
calorimeter consisting of 16 PWO logs. The longitudinal structure is similar with the CALET instrument. We used
positron and proton beams in the energy region from 6 to 200 GeV, and from 30 to 150 GeV, respectively. Comparing the
experimental data with the simulation results, we have measured the energy deposition in each component, the energy
resolution, the lateral shower spread and the e/p separation capability.
