Thank you. I added the statements you suggested to capture the 1st Compton interaction. Again in my phase space file I just got a lot of e- produced by Compton events but no photon at all. Then I added some printout statements and figured out that the following test

if (aStep->GetPostStepPoint()->GetProcessDefinedStep()->GetProcessName() == "compt")

always returned "false" because the process name was "Transportation" . I am still wondering how to distinguish photons produced by Compton interactions from my primary photons. Maybe a test on the Compton photon energy that should be below the primary photon energy (which is known) ? But this way I could not tell the "depth" of Compton interactions. I only have to dump to the phase space file the 1st-order Compton photons.

Best regards, maura
