|概要||We will report testing and calibration of the heavy-ion energy and charge resolution of the CALET cosmic-ray instrument that will fly on the International Space Station in 2015. CALET will measure the energy spectra and arrival directions of cosmic-ray electrons to 20 TeV and hadrons to 1 PeV with exceptional resolution. It will measure the spectra of high-energy nuclei to about Z = 40. It will also measure the cosmic gamma radiation with superior resolution to search for signatures of dark matter annihilation in the gamma-ray
and electron spectra. We performed beam tests at CERN-SPS in February and March 2015 to calibrate energy, angular and charge resolution with direct primary beams and secondary fragments of Ar of 13, 19, and 150 A GeV/c. The beam tests were carried out using a test instrument that is functionally equivalent to the calorimeter (CAL) of CALET. The purpose of our ion run, experimental method and setups, and preliminary results are reported.
