Question Recording hits and creating pixel layers  

Forum: Event and Track Management
Date: 13 Jan, 2016
From: Charlie Jackson <Charlie Jackson>

I'm trying to create cylindrical layers of silicon pixels that record hits when a charged particle passes through (Similar to the pixel layers of ATLAS or CMS)

Firstly is it possible on Geant4 to split a solid Cylinder defined by G4Tubs into segments or would I have to loop over making each individual pixel such that they fit together to form a cylinder?

Secondly, my aim is the eventually look at the number of hits on different pixel layers within a solid angle given by jets as defined by Fastjet (through a pythia event generation). Unfortunately there doesnt seem to be any examples that are at all related. If anyone has any examples or advice on analysing hits on pixels (within a solid angle) or combining with Fastjet it would be very much appreciated as I am very new to Geant4

Many Thanks
