Question Force interaction in a volume 

Forum: Event and Track Management
Date: 14 Jul, 2015
From: Christophe Hugon <Christophe Hugon>

Hello, I'm simulating a neutrino telescope. Therefore it is in water in which you have weak interaction of neutrino. But the problem is that the cross section is extremely low, thus I would have to generate a tremendous number of neutrino to get only one event. My question is: Is it possible to force the interaction of the neutrinos in the target material (sea water)? I read in the forum that it was in development, but not yet available.

The way I though was: Generate a neutrino in the target material and force to do the next step discrete process interaction immediately, i.e. without propagation (which could be light years). Is there a (maybe nasty but) simple way such as putting the transportation speed at 0?

Thank you for your help
