Cerenkov Radiation

Hey Everyone! Cerenkov’s radiation in GENT4 gives the energy spectra how one can change it into number vs wavelngth ?

Energy of Cherenkov radiation?

I’m sure there is a way to do it in GEANT4, but i would just get the data in energy and convert to wavelength using the Plank relation

Thanks for your reply. I tried your suggestion. But It did not show anything. I was trying it in the example OpNovice2. Should I use Plank relation in G4Cherenkov.cc class ?

Can you show your code where you apply the Planck formula?

You can use the Plank relation wherever you want to see the data. The energy spectrum is your resulting data and is a 2Xn array (or however it is stored) where the x value is in energy. You just need to convert the x value to wavelength using Energy = planck constant * wavelength. The absolute easiest way to do this is save the energy data and use whatever you are comfortable with (excel, python, matlab, etc) to change the x axis values
