Mr Daniel Duggan (Florida State University)


The operation and performance of the D0 calorimeter is presented.
We review the overall design of the three cryostat 17 layer,
~50,000 readout channel liquid argon sampling detector. A review
of the calorimeter operations will be presented with specific focus
on calibration techniques, hardware monitoring and stability, and
overall data quality strategies. The aim of this talk is to
review the techniques and systems that were developed to optimize
the resolution and performance of the D0 calorimeter.
