Question Problem with Rayleigh scattering

Hello,

We would like to include the Rayleigh scattering in our simulation of a Cerenkov detector with aerogel. We have included in the physics list the G4OptRayleigh process and provided for the aerogel properties a scattering length Lsc=55 mm. With this length (leading to a clarity C=0.005 um4/cm), we expect a loss of about 10% of the photons, but we get a much lower photon number. Would you have any hint about what we are doing wrong? Could you please tell us how is the Rayleigh process implemented in G4?

Thanks in advance for your help,
