Hi Mike,

Sorry, I did not see your message earlier.

I presume you set ResolutionScale to zero and still get a large fluctuation of photons at your photo sensitive area. This can arise from photon losses due to bulk absorption, surface absorption you may have specified.

I suggest you investigate and count the number of photons generated, (see: http://geant4.slac.stanford.edu/Tips/ "How can I count all optical photons generated in an event")

It may also be possible that your primary particle does not leave all its energy in your scintillator.

Regards, Peter
