Abstract

We have studied the spatial resolution of a preshower system with aluminum as absorber and silicon strips as the active sampling detector. The test beam was performed at X3 of the CERN SPS using an electron beam with energies between 4 and 50 GeV. The shower profiles of different beam momenta and absorber thicknesses are compared to full GEANT simulations.
