Question Air Gap 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 03 Oct, 2011
From: Eric <Eric>

Hi All-

I am trying to add a small air gap into a simulation, in between a scintillator and a PMT. We estimate it to be about .5 mm. I tried just creating a separation of .5 mm between the PMT and scintillator (the environment is all air), but this cut my signal way down. It seems there should be a way with surfaces to do this, but my experience with optical surfaces in Geant is that they are designed to simulate reflective wrappings and wouldn't be real useful in this case.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.
