This is for scintilators with a two component spectrum; i.e. a fast and a slow scintillation spectrum.
from the source source/processes/electromagnetic/xrays/include/G4Scintillation.hh
void SetScintillationExcitationRatio(const G4double excitationratio); // Called to set the scintillation exciation ratio, needed when // the scintillation level excitation is different for different // types of particles. This overwrites the YieldRatio obtained // from the G4MaterialPropertiesTable.
in the Application Developers Guide:
In those cases where the fast to slow excitation ratio changes with particle type, the method SetScintillationExcitationRatio can be called for each scintillation process (see the advanced underground_physics example). This overwrites the YieldRatio obtained from the G4MaterialPropertiesTable.
ExcitationRatio = 1.0; is the default, where the ratio is the intensity of fast component to the total scintillation intensity
