Hi Davinder,

It's funny - I was looking into exactly the same thing yesterday! I found this in Section 5.2.5.4 under "Boundary Processes" in the Application Developer's Manual:

"Surface objects ... are stored in a related table and can be retrieved by either specifying the two ordered pairs of physical volumes touching at the surface, or by the logical volume entirely surrounded by this surface. The former is called a border surface while the latter is referred to as the skin surface."

So, my understanding is that a G4LogicalSkinSurface specifies a surface completely surrounding a single detector volume, whereas a G4LogicalBorderSurface specifies the interface surface between 2 detector volumes that are touching.

Hope this helps, Sam
