Use of multiple CylindricalBarrelCalorimeters [message #2005] Mon, 31 May 2010 17:45

I have a detector design that I am modeling using the compact description format and slic. Part of the design is to have four consecutive barrel calorimeter layers with the layers increasing in length as the radius increases. Each calorimeter consists of a single absorber and a single sensitive layer.

I get an error from slic if I use this design and all four barrel calorimeters are producing "HcalBarrHits". To avoid this error, I can change the names--say, HcalBarrHits1, HcalBarrHits2, etc--but I'd like to call them all by the same name for consistency.

Question: Is there a better way to describe four concentric barrel calorimeter layers with differing lengths in the compact description?

While I can make a barrel calorimeter with repeating layers of the same length as a single system (using "layer repeat"), I don't know if there is a way to make four layers repeating with differing lengths.

Thanks. --Ray
