I've got a scintillation detector model and I'm interested in seeing how many times the optical photons bounce around inside of the detector before escaping or being absorbed. Therefore I'd like to do something like GetStepLength() for each step of an optical photon, add them up, and store that value in an array of many similar values for other optical photons.
My problem is trying to tell Geant when to start counting the pathlength anew for a new optical photon. In other words, after one photon has "died" how can I say: add all the step lengths you have up and store that value, reset to zero and start counting again for a new optical photon? Currently I'm just counting all the step lengths from many photons because I don't know how to make Geant distinguish between or "name" seperate photons and store their calculations seperately.
