The intention of this research project was to calculate the e/π ratio for the proposed Shashlik Detector for the Compact Muon Solenoid Experiment by simulating proton collision events in a virtual detector. The e/π ratio is the ratio of the Shashlik's ability to measure the energy of electromagnetic to hadronic particles. An upgrade is required for the electromagnetic calorimeter due to radiation damage of the current detector. The Shashlik Detector is a potential replacement for the current PbWO4 electromagnetic calorimeter and is designed with a layered pattern of scintillating material and absorber. I have analyzed this ratio for various absorber and scintillator thicknesses to determine the best ratio of materials to use.
