In the detectors currently being developed for experiments on the next-generation lepton colliders, highly granular calorimeters are to be used. In particular, the hadron calorimeter is planned to be assembled from scintillation cells with direct readout of light by silicon photomultipliers. According to the results of experimental measurements of the light collection in a cell developed for the CALICE prototype hadron calorimeter, when detecting minimum ionizing particles, an estimate of the detector effects was obtained. The detector effect on the resolution of the ILD hadron calorimeter was studied by modeling the response of the detector to single neutral kaons. It was shown that the contribution of experimentally measured detector effects to the resolution for single particles is on the order of 0.5–1% in the range of hadron energy of 5–60 GeV.
