In the G4Cerenkov process, I see that there aren't any Cherenkov photons produced with energies outside the energy range used for specifying the refraction index. This is logical. What happens if the energy range of the specified refraction index, doesn't cover all of the allowed cherenkov energies? Suppose in reality for a given particle&material we have cherenkov photons from emin to emax. What happens if we try to simulate the same particle&material and the rindex energy range (Emin-Emax) we specify doesn't cover all of emin-emax? Will we get correct number-of-photons/step and energy distributions (for the Emin-Emax range), or will these two will be incorrect? My question is because I generate Cherenkov photons in water and my detectors have a specific energy range they are sensitive to. I used to specify all the properties of water in this energy range. I have the impression that by restricting the available energy range the population of cherenkov photons in my water isn't the one that would be in reality (comparing in the detector-sensitive energy range always).
