Question How to define one single surface of a solid differently

Hi Peter,

this question is continuing our prevous discussion started under:

http://hypernews.slac.stanford.edu/HyperNews/geant4/get/geometry/680/1/1.html .

I don't need - also I don't want - absorption at the boundary of the new volume 3 and the original volume 1. As I already understood by not defining any LogicalBorderSurface, a polished, dielectric-dielectric border is assumed by default! Should then not reflection happen at this point? But what I would like to have is internal reflection at one single polished surface (while all others are coarse surfaces of the rectangular solid) without the need of transmission through a ground surface before. I'm not sure, if by defining a third volume I simulate the case of a rectangular solid with one single polished side?!

I hope you understand my special case! Thanks for your help,

cheers, Susanne
