dc.description.abstractThis thesis provides analysis for rho meson production during ultra-peripheral collisions at A Large Ion Collider Experiment (ALICE) on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. It also contains a discussion of the ALICE electromagnetic calorimeter (EMCal) and its uses in pion rejection. An overview of ALICE detectors, focusing on the electromagnetic calorimeter, is provided. Ultra-peripheral collision physics and particle identification for rho meson analysis are discussed. The ALICE trigger system is outline. The results of rho meson analysis using AliRoot is shown, including uses of the electromagnetic calorimeter for pion identification.en_US
