Hi Fatin,

Geant4 treats optical processes "of an optical photon particle" when, in fact, they are wave phenomena. It is in this situation that the evanescent wave is mentioned in the documentation. G4 does not generate a photon representing the evanescent wave but only simulates the end result of the wave phenomenon.
