Thank you very much for your clarification. Actually, may I ask another question now that we are talking about sensitive detectors?

So in the case of mother and daughter volumes, I will have to assign each logical volume the same SensitiveDetector object if I want to use only one to control all the events inside the whole mother volume.

When it comes to creating hits, how could I keep track of all the energy deposit if for example, a particle goes inside the mother detector (lets say a gamma), inside it goes pair production, the positron escapes the mother geometry, undergoes annihilation and one of the 511KeV goes into my mother detector. If I create a Hit object every time a particle enters the SD region and deposits non-zero energy, I would have two hits at the end. Ideally I would like to have only one hit. Is there a proper way to handle this? Thank you,

C.
