I am interested in modeling the scintillation response from protons, but not quite sure how to set up the simulation. Considering the source to be 1 MeV protons, should I set up by:
1. providing the empirical ScintillationYield value for protons to the material properties table of the sensing medium, or
2. provide the ScintillationYield value for electrons/gamma-rays to the material properties table and expect GEANT to properly account for the energy transfer from energetic protons to electrons?
Any advice would be appreciated.
p.s. The energy of protons Iím interested in is well below the threshold for Cerenkov light generation.
