According to the Turkish Accelerator Center (TAC) project, a tau-charm factory is proposed based on colliding a 1 GeV electron beam against a 3.5 GeV positron beam. The Particle Factory (TAC-PF) detector will be constructed for the detection of the producing particles from this collision. PbWO4 and CsI(Tl) crystals are considered for the construction of the electromagnetic calorimeter. The photons generated from incident particles in the crystal material are detected by Avalanche photodiodes (APD) or PIN photodiodes placed at the end of the crystal. In this work, the contribution to the calorimetric energy resolution from both the shower fluctuations in the crystal and photoelectron statistics in the detectors have been simulated for PbWO4-APD and PbWO4-PIN combinations.
