Question Finding The Origin Of A Particle - Assigning a LATCH Variable to a Particle 

Forum: Event and Track Management

From: Ben Hug <Ben Hug>

Hi All,

I want to model a detector volume inside a water phantom and the resulting energy which is delivered to the detector volume as a result of particles incident on the phantom.

I want to look at how much of the signal results from incident particles interacting in the detector volume itself and how much of the signal results from particles produced in the surrounding water.

I know in BEAMnrc you can attach a LATCH variable which will tell you information regarding the origin of the particle (i.e Find out where the particle originated.. for example if a photon came from the source or if the photon was scattered off another component further down the beam line)

Has anyone got any ideas???

Relatively new Geant4 users here so a good explanation would really be appreciated.

Thanks IN ADvance,

Cheers

Ben
