Schematic view of the SciCRT (KEK/High Energy Accelerator Organization 2003). The SciCRT is composed of 14,848 scintillator bars, whose dimensions are 300 cm × 2.5 cm × 1.3 cm. Each layer is made of two planes with 116 scintillator bars orthogonally attached; there are in total 64 layers. Scintillation photons generated by cosmic ray signal go through wavelength-shifting fibers (Kuraray Y11(200)MS) and are read out by using the 64-channel multianode PMTs (HAMAMATSU H8804).
