I am implementing a liquid argon calorimeter using GEANT4. Included are attachments of screenshots of my geometry. The calorimeter is the small portion to the left of the purple cylinder in attachments g4-ss1 and g4-ss3.
Basically I have a mother volume in which I add two daughters, a solid cylinder of radius 40mm (c1, purple) and another hollow cylinder constructed using Pcons (c2, grey) with two radii, rmin=50mm and rmax=370mm. c1 passes through c2 as shown in attachments g4-ss1 and g4ss3. Now, c2 has the portion of the volume removed where c1 is inserted using a subtraction, as shown in attachments g4-ss2 and g4-ss4.
This configuration results in weird energy deposits inside the calorimeter. Could this be due to an overlap between c1 and c2? When I remove c2 completely, I still get the same unexpected results, which makes me think the geometry is implemented fine. This has been causing me some grief for a while and so wanted an expert's opinion/advice.
Thanks in advance,
