None Birks attenuation  

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 08 Feb, 2010
From: Hans Wenzel <Hans Wenzel>

I am simulating various Crystals (BGO,PbWO) to study the photon yield from the scintillation and Cerenkov processes. Now I want to know how the scintillation photon yield is affected by Birks attenuation. Up to now I just studied how the energy deposit is affected by implementing Birks attenuation in the sensitive detector using the recipe given in:

./electromagnetic/TestEm3/src/SteppingAction.cc

Now I would like to apply birk attenuation before the szintillation process is invoked that creates the scintillation photons. What is the best place to do that?

thanks in advance

Hans
