Question Help: Compton scattering times 

Forum: Event and Track Management
Date: 19 Apr, 2015
From: Xiao Tong <Xiao Tong>

Hello everyone: I am using mac pro to run Geant4.10.1 I want to record the times of Comton scattering when a 662 keV gamma ray is incident to a pixllated detector array (10x10). Below is part of my code:

for (i=0; i<100; i++) {
    BeamTestEmCalorimeterHit* aHit = new BeamTestEmCalorimeterHit(i);
G4int ComptTime(0);
G4String processName="Compt";
G4String CPName;
G4bool BeamTestEmCalorimeter::ProcessHits(G4Step* aStep, G4TouchableHistory*)

  G4double depositedEnergy = aStep->GetTotalEnergyDeposit();
  if (0 == depositedEnergy) return true;

 G4Track* aTrack = aStep->GetTrack();

    CPName = aTrack->GetCreatorProcess()->GetProcessName();
    if (CPName == processName) ++ComptTime;

  return true;

But the ComptTime is always 0, after running my program. Anyone can help me to find the reason? Thank you. Xiaotong
