I wish to study the effect of photon interaction location on the number of photons recorded by a PMT for a wrapped, right cylindrical scintillator. Specifically, I would like to count the number of optical photons incident on my sensitive detector surface (PMT) per each 1 MeV photoelectric absorption event inn my crystal. I will then move the interaction location around to map position versus light output.
I have plenty of experience with MEGAlib and electromagnetic processes, but this is the first time I've run optical photon generators in GEANT4 (MEGAlib doesn't do optical transport). I have read and run examples extended/optical/LXe and novice/NO6 but don't see their immediate utility for what I want to accomplish.
I imagine that the scintillator+wrapping+can+optical grease+PMT problem has been modeled innumerable times. Is anyone aware of of a reasonable jumping off point.
Thanks - Steve
