This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Compensation studies with an Si calorimeter ' In a calorimeter with silicon readout, the use of a combination of low-Z (Fe) and high-Z (Pb) materials as absorbers enables the transformation of the electron energy distribution of the incident showers in two media with different critical energies via the filtering effect. As a result, the electromagnetic energy and consequently the e/MIP ratio value can be substantially reduced as a function of the thickness of high-Z (Pb) material present in the absorber, making it possible to tune the e/ pi ratio and making possible the achievement of the compensation condition e/ pi =1.<
