Question How can I "divide" surfaces to assign different optical properties to them?

Hello!

I am a beginner in using Geant4 and would like to know, if it is possible to assign different optical properties to the surface of one volume. For example: I have a scintillation crystal, which is a box, and would like to to assign only to one of its four long sides a ground surface, the other three should be polished. Or, I'd like to make the surface rough only for one half of its length, the other half polished. Is there a way in Geant4 to realize these problems without dividing the crystal itself into different volumes? (I want to avoid a interface within the scintillation material).

I hope you can help me.

sincerely,

Astrid
