Question total number of cerenkov photons in e.m. vs hadronic showers

Hi,

I'm simulating electromagnetic and hadronic cascades in ice and investigating their photon production.

I noticed that less Cerenkov photons are produced in electromagnetic than in hadronic showers (e.g. 3e+8 for a 10 TeV neutron primary compared to 1e+8 for a 10TeV e- primary ). Which absolutely contradicts the expectations.

Any idea what might be causing this? I can not find any (default) cut on minimal energy etc. I'll attach my CerenkovPhysics.cc and PhysicsList.cc .

Thank you very much in advance!

Anna
