Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

N06 is a novice example. It does not pretend to provide exact or realistic physical values and has a pedagogic purpose only - so there is no reference for this input. But what it shows is how you can specify two emission spectra. The fast component is a flat spectrum in the range of 2.034*eV to 4.134*eV, while the slow component has a shape (which you get if you plotted the values in ScintilSlow against PhotonEnergy. The values themselves are relative units.
> 2) line 145,146. What are the times in the sentences mean?
The emission of scintillation photons follows an exponential time constant (e**-t/tau). The fast component in this example has a short tau (1*ns) and the slow component has a tau that is 10x longer.
I should hope that this is adequately explained in the Application Developers Manual.

A nice optics book I remember from grad. school is Optics by Hecht/Zajac but there may not be a whole lot about scintillation in it. Google/Wiki will get you started. You can also look at Geant4's Physics Reference Manual.
