Question What happens when a hit occurs in nested sensitive detector volumes? 

Keywords: nested sensitive detector volumes ProcessHits()
Forum: Hits, Digitization and Pileup
Date: 29 Oct, 2005
From: Blair Smith <bmsmith@lsu.edu>

The question is, what will happen if I have say two volumes set as SD (using the same SD class) and one is a daughter volume of the other, say "logicModule" is a daughter of "logicHouse".

When a particle scatters in a physical placement of a logicModule what will happen? Will ProcessHit() get called for both of these sensitive volumes, or will ProcessHit() only get activated for the lower level daughter logicModule?

I ask because I would like to avoid setting up seperate hit collections and the behaviour I want is for each hit to activate ProcessHits() only once (and preferrably for the deepest embedded of the possibly nested sensitive volumes).

Regards,

Blair.
