The proposed particle factory detector for Turkish Accelerator Center (TAC-PF) being a regional facility in Turkey will operate at the center of mass energy about 3.77 GeV with designed luminosity of the order of 10(34) cm(-2) s(-1). The electromagnetic calorimeter part of the detector is considered to have PbWO4 and CsI(Tl) crystals coupled with photodiodes. In this study, the exposed dose rate to electromagnetic calorimeter during PF detector operation was estimated by FLUKA Monte Carlo tool. The irradiation effects such as the change of light yield and light transmission of these crystals were investigated to evaluate TAC-PF electromagnetic calorimeter energy resolution.
