Dear Lili,

This is inconsistent; the unified model applies only to dielectric_dielectric surface types.

I suspect you want dielectric_metal. In that case, you should follow Example 5.9 in the Developers Guide:

Example 5.9. Dielectric metal surface properties defined via the G4OpticalSurface.

G4LogicalVolume* volume_log;

G4OpticalSurface* OpSurface = new G4OpticalSurface("name");

G4LogicalSkinSurface* Surface = new

OpSurface -> SetType(dielectric_metal); OpSurface -> SetFinish(ground); OpSurface -> SetModel(glisur);

G4double polish = 0.8;

G4MaterialPropertiesTable *OpSurfaceProperty = new G4MaterialPropertiesTable();

OpSurfaceProperty -> AddProperty("REFLECTIVITY",pp,reflectivity,NUM); OpSurfaceProperty -> AddProperty("EFFICIENCY",pp,efficiency,NUM);

OpSurface -> SetMaterialPropertiesTable(OpSurfaceProperty);

In general, please see the chapter on optical photon processes in the Developer's guide, in particular Figure 5.1
