Studies have been done and continue on the design and construction of a Shashlik detector using Radiation hard quartz capillaries filled with wavelength shifting liquid to collect the scintillation light from LYSO crystals for use as a calorimeter in the Phase II CMS upgrade at CERN. The work presented here focuses on the studies of the capillaries and liquids that would best suit the purpose of the detector. Comparisons are made of various liquids, concentrations, and capillary construction techniques will be discussed.
