  The KLOE calorimeter consists of three parts: one barrel and two endcaps. Each part is built out of modules with a spaghetti structure made of lead layers with about 1,2 mm thickness (200 layers per 1 module) which are filled with scintillating fibers of 1 mm diameter. The barrel (Fig. 1) has a cilindrical shape and is divided into 24 modules with trapezoid shape. Each module is 23 cm thick.

The 24 modules of the barrel and the inner plane of the endcap are shown.

The volume of the calorimeter consists of 50% fiber, 40% lead and 10% glue. The section of one of the 24 modules and the details of the lead+fiber structure can be aprreciated in Fig. 2. The detailed structure of the module has been simulated as described in the following section.
