The KLOE detector was designed primarily for the study of CP violation in neutral kaon decays at DAPHNE, the Frascati phi-factory. The detector consists of a tracker and an electromagnetic calorimeter. A lead-scintillating-fiber sampling calorimeter satisfies best the requirements of the experiment, providing adequate energy resolution and superior timing accuracy. We describe in the following the construction of the calorimeter, its calibration and how the calorimeter information is used to

We also present a measurement of efficiency for low energy photons.
