Hello,

I am quite puzzled from an effect I see in my simulations.

I used the command
/Mokka/init/lcioDetailedTRKHitMode VXDCollection
in order to get the distance travelled in the sensitive part of VXD .

I use Mokka0606 and detectorModel LDCPrime_02Sc_p01, where each layer of the VXD is defined with a sensitive thickness of 50um of silicon (checked to be correct in the Gear file).

I generated high energy muons at theta=90 degrees and uniformly in phi. The "minimum" pathlength I get is 100um and not the 50um I should expect. Additionally I get also some percent of the events with very short pathlength, ranging from 0 to 100um, even for events which are primaries, thus should in principle cross all the sensitive volume of the VXD layer.

has anyone an idea of what that is?

Thank you for the help,

rita
