Question Min step size for optical photons? 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 07 May, 2013
From: Pawel <Pawel>

Hello, I'm preparing a small simulation simmilar to LXe example (with different geometry, materials etc, but idea is the same - I'm irradiating a box with liquid gas with charged particles and counting photons reaching PMTs).

As I use particles with higher energy, the number of produced photons gets bigger and tracking them results in the increase of a CPU time used. I'm wondering whether there is a way to set the minimum step size for produced photons to make tracking less accurate, but also less CPU consuming? I've searched forum, but found only examples of setting maximum step size, which is not the case. If such a possibility exists, I'd be grateful for every hint.

cheers

Pawel
