Abstract

In addition to PWO and CsI(Tl) crystals, cerium doped LYSO crystal is considered for the electromagnetic calorimeter part of the Turkish Accelerator Center Particle Factory (TAC-PF) detector, because of its high light yield, fast decay time and good radiation hardness. In this work, LYSO crystals arranged in 3 x 3 and 5 x 5 matrices have been simulated against photons in the energy range between 50 MeV and 2 GeV, using Geant4 simulation code. Energy resolutions have been estimated considering the contribution of photoelectron statistics coming from the avalanche and PIN photodiodes.
