The first pre-production-prototype (PPP-I) of the quartz fibre calorimeter of the CMS detector has been tested at CERN. The calorimeter consists of quartz fibres embedded in an iron matrix. Results are presented on the energy resolution and on the signal uniformity of the prototype for electrons and pion's and the signal uniformity and linearity.
