I have two questions regarding optical photon detection at a surface:

1) I've noticed that there are fluctations about the user specified efficiency value entered as an optical surface property. Specifically the efficiency appears NOT to be a simple multiplicative factor. I assume the fluctuations about this specified mean are Poisson in nature. Can this be confirmed as there is no documentation I have found that clarifies this?

2) I understand that I can give the efficiency as a function of optical photon energy. Is the efficiency array treated as a histogram (constant mean between array entries) or is there interpolation between array values?

Any information regarding this is very much appreciated. Thanks.
