Hi Peter,

Thanks a lot for the explanation!

It seems to me that this photon reflect off WLSSupport then goes through
0.135mm in WLS and then goes 159mm through LArCol before hitting another
WLS. The photons are not bouncing inside WLS (thin surface boundaries).

The mirrow (WLSSupport) may not be perfect and has a finite
reflectivity. There is also a finite absorption length in LAr.

The track you show reflects at WLSSupport and refracts either in or out
of WLS from LAr or to LAr.

I see nothing surprising.
