Abstract : Ionization calorimeters, or total absorption spectrometers, have enjoyed widespread use by cosmic ray physicists as energy-sensitive detectors for hadron events. We have successfully employed similar detectors of smaller scale in experiments on neutron total cross sections at particle accelerators. A description of these detectors and a discussion of other applications is presented. (Author)
