Question how to count cherenkov photons ? ? ? 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons

Hi everyone,

I've got some problem with the Cherenkov process!! I want to count how many cherenkov photons are emitted when a muon (of given energy ~20 TeV) travels through a volume of water. But the Cherenkov process has only a method called:

SetMaxNumPhotonsPerStep(const G4int NumPhotons)

where I have to set the maximum number of photons generated.

Any idea how could I also count the cherenkov photons generated?

Thank you in advance!
