Re: Question physics list model for scintillation of NaI(Tl) (Cejo George)

Dear Cejo,

G4OpticalPhysics is only part of a complete physics list. It deals with implementing the optical photon physics portion. If you were to only activate it, none of the EM processes would occur in your simulation. So, you must instantiate G4OpticalPhysics together with an EM physics list of your choice. This is what is done in LXe. On the other hand TestEm1 is not using G4OpticalPhysics.

There are now multiple ways to instantiate a PhysicsList in your simulation. The way shown in LXe - explicitly one by one - is perhaps a bit outdated. You may want to code something like what is in:

examples/extended/field/field04/src/F04PhysicsList.cc

or add G4OpticalPhysics to TestEm1

Hope this clarifies the situation, Peter
