I am decently experienced with Geant4 and I have a curious problem. I am guessing I missed something obvious. I have a detector with multiple replicated layers. When I pass muons through the layers my output all makes sense, the total energy deposited is less than the original particle energy and the total number of hits in the hits collection matches the # of hits being printed out. However, when I use gammas, of low or high energy, i get an incorrect number of hits, and the total energy deposited in the single event often exceeds the total initial gamma energy. If I print out the number of hits in the hits collection, it is always less than the number of hits it thinks was in the event. Any ideas why this would happen with gammas and not with muons?
I am using a separate sensitive detector for both layers. I am using FTFP_BERT physics.
Thanks in advance,
