In this work a neural network has been used to reconstruct the residual energy after the first stage and classify the atomic number of the particles detected in a Silicon-CsI ΔE-E telescope. The adopted net is described and the whole procedure has been compared with the standard calibration methods for the E stage. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
