Question Sensitive detector with G4PSCylinderSurfaceFlux 

Forum: Biasing and Scoring
Date: 31 Dec, 2014
From: Andrea Conti <Andrea Conti>

I have a cylindrical container having the radioactive source inside and I implemented a ring around it, in order to measure the flux with G4PSCylinderSurfaceFlux. The ring is 20cm high and 10mm (radially) thick.

The detector has been implemented this way:

G4VPhysicalVolume* DetectorConstruction::Construct()
  solidDetector = new G4Tubs("Detector", 600*mm,610*mm,100*mm,0*deg,360*deg);
  logicDetector = new G4LogicalVolume(solidDetector,Air,"Detector");
  physiDetector = new G4PVPlacement(0,

  G4String filterName, particleName;
  G4SDParticleFilter* gammaFilter = 
    new G4SDParticleFilter(filterName="gammaFilter",particleName="gamma");
  G4MultiFunctionalDetector* det = new G4MultiFunctionalDetector("Detector");
  primitive = new G4PSCylinderSurfaceFlux("eDep",0,0);

And then, to retrieve the information, I have:

void EventAction::EndOfEventAction(const G4Event* evt)
G4SDManager* SDMan= G4SDManager::GetSDMpointer();
 colID = SDMan->GetCollectionID("Detector/eDep");
 G4HCofThisEvent* HCE = evt->GetHCofThisEvent();
 G4THitsMap<G4double>* evtMap = (G4THitsMap<G4double>*)(HCE->GetHC(colID));
 std::map<G4int,G4double*>::iterator itr = evtMap->GetMap()->begin();
 G4int key = (itr->first);
 G4double val = *(itr->second);

 G4cout << "key = " << key;


But I never get anything, also when I see through visualization that some photons effectively go through the detector belt. The variable "key" always results to be = 0. I am afraid I did something wrong in the construction of the sensitive detector. I always activate the detector through the command line: "/hits/activate Detector". By the way, if I give the command "/hits/activate Detector/eDep" then I get the error message "Detector/ is not found in /".

Have I correctly associated the surface detector to my ring ? I am afraid not.
