Hello again,

I have implemented a fix for the optical photon energy conservation as suggested. In LXeScintSD::ProcessHits

  G4String PID = aStep->GetTrack()->GetDefinition()->GetParticleName();    
  if(PID=="opticalphoton" || edep==0.) return false;

However I have just transferred over from a sequential version of Geant4 to multithreaded one. During this process I have noticed the LXe example double counts, the energy deposited in the scintillator.

For example:

In Sequential, 1 MeV gamma: Total energy deposition in scintillator : 1000 (keV)

In Multithreaded, 1 MeV gamma Total energy deposition in scintillator : 2000 (keV)

Any suggestions for a fix?

Many thanks

 Michael
