Re: None Absorbption Length as a Function of Position (Christopher Cowden)

Hi Chris,

Unfortunately, the simple version of what you want (a G4Material that has spatial variation of its properties) does not exit (to my knowledge!). While one can attach a G4MaterialPropertiesTable that describes variation of things like optical properties of various functions, G4Materials essentially describe "static" and "uniform" spatial properties of a particle volume.

You could, however, depending on the complexity of your problem, create a large number of discrete, adjacent volumes - each with "static" optical values of absorption length - to approximate a continuous, smooth degradation due to radiation damage. Provided the refractive indices (etc) are all the same, the optical physics should mimic a continuous volume.

Hope this helps,
