Abstract

The development of the shower induced by 26- and 28-GeV electrons in the oriented tungsten crystal results in strong absorption of the shower energy by the crystal and an increase in the energy fraction of shower particles scattered between the crystal and detector. The ratios of total shower energy losses in oriented tungsten crystals to total losses in misoriented crystals 1, 2.7, 5.8, and 8.4 mm thick were 3.9, 2.6, 2.1, and 1.9, respectively.
