Question Energy Leakage 

Forum: Event and Track Management
Date: 29 Apr, 2010
From: AJ Richards <AJ Richards>

Hi,
  I am trying to measure the energy deposited in a layer of diamond by incident
particles (protons, pions, and betas).  I am currently using
getTotalEnergyDeposit(), but I am worried about the following scenario:  What if
some of the secondary particles escape the sensitive detector region?  I only
want to include the energy deposited within the diamond region, not the energy
that escapes via the original particle or the secondaries.  Is
getTotalEnergyDeposit() the right tool for the job?  Or will this include the
energy escaping via the secondaries?  Thanks.  -AJ
