Dear Geant4 experts,
is there any way to get, when tracking an optical photon in a Geant4 simulation, any information about which scintillation component was used to generate it?
Say for example that I've set a FAST and SLOW scintillation component for my crystal: now I would like to be able, whenever an optical photon stops in my detector, to distinguish the ones generated by the fast component from the ones generated according to the slow component.
I've tried looking into the G4Scintillation.cc class, but it seems like this information is not exported to the newly generated track when the secondary is produced with the method
G4Track* aSecondaryTrack = new G4Track(aScintillationPhoton,aSecondaryTime,aSecondaryPosition);
in fact the parameters used to generate the time distribution
deltaTime = deltaTime + sample_time(ScintillationRiseTime, ScintillationTime);
don't pass to the track, since it only gets
SecondaryTime = t0 + deltaTime
So maybe it's impossible, or maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place: is there any way to get this kind of "tag" of the scintillation component that generated the optical?
