Hello Devinder,

Thanks for your reply.

What I wanted to ask was as both my detector and the outside world are vacuum, can I define their interface as dielectric_metal (using g4LogicalBordersurface)? Or should I create an Al layer around the detector (using G4PhysicaVolume) and then define this new interface as dielectric_metal?

Also, I was thinking how can a photon just get absorbed at the cladding? I understand that whether it is reflected or refracted depends on Fresnel's laws. But how can it get absorbed?

Many thanks for your reply,

Regards, Athreya
