Thank you for the response

But if this is the case then the response of the photon collection on PMT will be different in the two cases. If suppose the scintillation happens in vol1 and the photons tries to cross the interface between vol1 and vol2 then how does user know about in what way it has to be specify the optical surface ie

new G4LogicalBorderSurface("surface",vol1_phys,vol2_phys,OpSurf); OR new G4LogicalBorderSurface("surface",vol1_phys,vol2_phys,OpSurf);

because as you said in the opposite case it sees only the index of refraction of the two media and if the user wants that photons must undergo the reflections when it goes like vol1--->Interface--->vol2 then there will be very large variations in the results. So my confusion is in this case vol1_phys comes first or vol2_phys.
