Well, you are now tracking 60000 optical photons per MeV deposited. Obviously, your execution time goes up with the number of photons you want to track. - Most times it is not necessary to actually simulate the real photon statistic to get an idea about the optical behaviour of a geometry. You can bias your simulation by simulating only a fraction, and your histogram/resutls to be rescaled at the end by 1/fraction.
