Question Definition of a spherical shell detector  

Forum: Hits, Digitization and Pileup
Date: 30 Sep, 2008
From: Peter T. <Peter T.>


I am trying to define a detector having the shape of a spherical shell in order to collect all the escaping particles that are generated inside the shell.

Especially I'm interested in the coordinates where the particle hits the detector.

I am aware that with the G4PVParameterised method one can generate a _striped_ scoring sphere but that would only give _one_ coordinate since the sensitive area is a ring. Is this assumption correct?

What is an effective way to define such a spherical shell detector that allows to extract the full coordinates ( spherical or cartesian) of the hits?

Preferably I would like to use primitive scorers.

Thank you very much for the support!

Best regards
