Question Identifying nested volumes 

Keywords: nested volume, unique identification

Hi Geanters!

I am now defining a nested geometry like this:

1. I have three types of logical volumes, A, B and C.
2. a. The World volume contains some A's. 
   b. A contains some B's.
   c. B contains some C's.
3. The C's are sensitive detectors which records "edep" when a particle deposits energy.

The way I implemented this is to use PVPlacement in put some C's in a logical B and then some B's in a logical A and then some A's in the world.

However, the problem is that when a hit occurs, I can't identify which C has been hit; because the C's have the same names and copy numbers in different B's.

Are there any ways to identify the C's?

Any help is very much appreciated!

regards, Raymond Tsang
