Abstract : The properties of a large NaI(T1) detector as a total absorption detector for pions at GeV energies are reported. These observations are supplemented by measurements on the three-dimensional distribution of deposited energy in a large absorber of metallic tin by 8 GeV pions. The latter data are compared with existing Monte Carlo calculations of the nucleon-meson cascade and their application to the design of total absorption detectors with large containment factors is discussed.
