The energy-loss spectrum of high energy muons after traversal of a 10 meter iron degrader has been measured with an accuracy of better than 1%. Data taken at energies between 50 and 120 GeV are in agreement with predictions from a Monte Carlo program based on the most recent theoretical descriptions of all relevant processes. The stopping power calculated by this program deviates up to several percent from earlier calculations.
