Question G4PSPassageTrackLength by secondary particles 

Forum: Analysis
Date: 19 Sep, 2014
From: Leonardo Ghizoni <Leonardo Ghizoni>

Hello Experts,

I'm building a simulation where a 3 GeV electron gun hits a Al2O3 Screen inside a tube and generates fluorescence. Then I calculate the Energy Deposit,Dose Deposit and Track Length on a CCD (SiO2 material) outside the tube. I'm calculating those parameters with the primitive scorers G4PSDoseDeposit, G4PSEnergyDeposit and G4PSPassageTrackLength.

Generating 1000 electron beams, I can get the Energy and Dose deposits, but the Track Length is always Zero. How can there be an Energy deposit and no length on the material? Do I have to activate some secondaries scores, because everything that hits the CCD is a secondary particle generated by the electron hit on the Al2O3 screen.

Another question, and maybe a very basic one, sorry for that: I can get the Energy and Dose for each beam. How would be the best way to calculate the sum of all and the maximum of each value?

Thank you very much.

Regards. Leonardo.
