Dear Wolfgang, Peter and Geant4 community,

thank you so much for your help. Combining all the information I got from your mails and postings I managed to solve my problem.

Peter, you were right: If I turn off the trajectory storage I do not get a bad_alloc anymore. So this was really a memory problem of my machine. Still the simulation stayed unbelievably slow. I looked for papers to see what is more realistic to apply as the optical absorption length of LYSO and found something aroung 50 cm. If I apply this data, it speeds up so much! So I guess this is the real solution to my problem.

Still, I like to find also this absorption length for the optical window I have between the crystal and the readout structure. Right now there is still quartz implemented with also a very high absorption length, but I want to change it to epoxy. Does anyone accidently know such values for epoxy? My search in literature was not successful in this field.

Thank you!
