Dear Geanters, I have a simple question. I have an electron beam which goes through two scintillators. I would like to count the total number of optical photons in each scintillator. Currently, I follow the "classical approach" by by adding two counters in either G4UserStackingAction or G4UserTrackingAction, and incrementing individual counter by testing on volume name. It works, however, I am wondering if there is more natural way of doing this under the framework of Hits/Sensitive Detectors. After all, for a scintillator, the number of photons should be simply kept just like dEdx. So far I came up with an ugly fix. I try to count the total number of unique new trackID in SD::ProcessHits() demanding that the particle name = "optical photons". If you happen to know a better approach, would you share it with me? Thanks much! Jianglai
