Hadron calorimetry has been a rapidly developing field in the past few decades. Perhaps not too far in the future, a realistic calorimeter will be capable of measuring the energies of all the fundamental particles with ∼1% precision. Currently, calorimeters with unprecedented complexity attest to the knowledge and experience that have been accumulated in high energy physics. In this review, we touch on fundamental concepts and explain new developments that we expect to be important in the future. In addition to describing applications in accelerator-based high energy physics, we briefly mention the use of hadron calorimeters in other fields.
