Re: Question more photons counted than generated (Athreya Shankar)

Hi Athreya,

Just a quick question - is the scoring logic you described in your UserSteppingAction class? If so, then I think it may be possible that you are accidentally scoring some optical photons more than once. For example, with the logic you described, if an optical photon undergoes more than one step before being absorbed/leaving the dummy detector, than it will be scored more than once in your output file.

Not sure if this is the actual problem or not, but I hope it helps :)

Cheers, Sam
