RE: optical photons by scintillation/cherenkov process

dear users,

since scintillation photon is related to only monochromatic energies
(Markus's reminder) i started to simulate just cherenkov photons but
fluka stops somehow now without giving no reasonable error.

could you please give comment what could be the problem?

i attached my working directory as well.
