Re: Question Counting total number of scintillation photons per event (Jesse Wodin)

Hi Jese,

It appears to me, from your question, that you want to calculate the fraction of photons detected of the total number of photons generated, event by event.

This seems to me an exercise of adding up produced secondary optical photons in your G4UserSteppingAction from information available in G4ParticleChange.

I don't know, but I suspect that at least one G4 example should exhibit how this is done. G4Scintillation does not keep track of all the photons generated in an event loop.
