Title: The electromagnetic calorimeter in JLab Real Compton Scattering Experiment

A hodoscope calorimeter comprising of 704 lead-glass blocks is described. The calorimeter was constructed for use in the JLab Real Compton Scattering experiment. The detector provides a measurement of the coordinates and the energy of scattered photons in the GeV energy range with resolutions of 5 mm and 6\%/$$\sqrt{E_\gamma \, [GeV]}$$, respectively. Design features and performance parameters during the experiment are presented.
