Description

It's been a while since I looked at simulation. Now, I'm having problems running tracker reconstruction with the recent updates in the simulation code. The issue comes down to this: energy depositions in the fibres are too small. They are either 0 or something of the order 10^(-10) keV. Typical values like the ones we used to have before (~ 0.04 keV) are very(!) rare.

The energy deposition in a fibre is retrieved using the member function GetTotalEnergyDeposit() of the class G4Step.

This whole problem is not due to secondaries, I'm running an almost pure muon beam with large threshold for delta ray production. Datacard input and simulation output are attached.

Help? Ideas?
