Default = 3 WHAT(5) = upper bound of the indices of materials in which the indicated Cherenkov or TRD photon emission range is defined ...To material WHAT(5)... Default = WHAT(4) WHAT(6) = step length in assigning indices ...in step of WHAT(6) Default = 1 Default: (option OPT-PROD not given): no Cherenkov, scintillation or TRD photon production Notes: - 1) Optical photons such as those produced by Cherenkov effect are distinguished by their FLUKA name (OPTIPHOT) and by their FLUKA id number (-1), as shown in (5).
- 2) To transport optical photons, it is necessary to define the optical properties of the relevant materials by means of option OPT-PROP. Users can also write their own routines USRMED (which is called at every step and at boundary crossings when activated with MAT-PROP) and FRGHNS (which defines surface roughness).
- 3) The energy/wavelength/frequency range as defined by OPT-PROD for Cherenkov photon production is not necessarily the same as that defined for transport by means of OPT-PROP. The default values, however, are the same.
- 4) In case of scintillation light, only monochromatic photons are considered for the moment, with a maximum of 3 different lines. The lines can be defined repeating i times the OPT-PROD card with SDUM = SCINTILL
