Hi everyone, I've got some problem with the Cherenkov process!! In the examples/novice/N06/DetectorConstruction.cc,there are the following code

G4double Absorption[nEntries] =
           {3.448*m,  4.082*m,  6.329*m,  9.174*m, 12.346*m, 13.889*m,
           15.152*m, 17.241*m, 18.868*m, 20.000*m, 26.316*m, 35.714*m,
           45.455*m, 47.619*m, 52.632*m, 52.632*m, 55.556*m, 52.632*m,
           52.632*m, 47.619*m, 45.455*m, 41.667*m, 37.037*m, 33.333*m,
           30.000*m, 28.500*m, 27.000*m, 24.500*m, 22.000*m, 19.500*m,
           17.500*m, 14.500*m };

What dose the Absorption mean? absorption length or other meanings? And how can I get the "Absorption" of other materials. Thank you in advance!
