Warning G4Paraboloid::DistanceToOut 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 27 Feb, 2009
From: Svetlana Biktemerova <Svetlana Biktemerova>


There is a bug in G4Paraboloid::DistanceToOut realisation in Geant4.9.2.
It's concerned on the surface normal calculation.
 a line 868 normal calculation ( *n = n->unit(); ) is missed. 

When using Geant4 for optical propagation it can lead to effects like FresnelReflection instead of FresnelRefraction inside the parabolic volumes.

regards, Svetlana Biktemerova.
