Hello Athreya,

Please note, this information is outdated! In the early days of first implementation of the scintillation process (before it was possible to attach a constant property to a material) this was the case.

It is now possible to set the scintillation properties of any number of material in the simulation. It is also possible now to have light yields be a function of the energy deposited - not just linear - and as well as particle type dependent.

Please, see the Application Developers Manual for details.

Best regards, Peter
