A sharp gas-bremsstrahlung beam with an energy up to 8 GeV is available at insertion device (ID) beamlines at SPring-8. As a practical use of the beam, a test experiment for a 3 × 3 PWO calorimeter has been performed at an ID beamline, BL11XU, to measure the position of the incident gas-bremsstrahlung beam impinging on the calorimeter. The obtained position resolution is sqrt(((2.76 ± 0.02) / sqrt(E))2 + (0.30 ± 0.04)2) mm, E in GeV, at the center of the calorimeter, which is consistent with the result previously obtained with a low-energy electron beam. Despite limited beam-energy information, the pencil-like photon beam generated on ID beamlines works well for a measurement of the position resolution of electromagnetic calorimeters.
