A highly granular electromagnetic calorimeter with scintillator strip readout is being developed for future linear collider experiments. A prototype of 21.5 푋0 depth and 180 × 180 mm2 transverse dimensions was constructed, consisting of 2160 individually read out 10 × 45 × 3 mm3 scintillator strips. This prototype was tested using electrons of 2–32 GeV at the Fermilab Test Beam Facility in 2009. Deviations from linear energy response were less than 1.1%, and the intrinsic energy resolution was determined to be (12.5±0.1(stat.)±0.4(syst.))%∕√퐸[GeV]⊕(1.2± 0.1(stat.)+0.6−0.7(syst.))%, where the uncertainties correspond to statistical and systematic sources, respectively.
