Scintillation detector

Hello expert,
Can I use NaI scintillation detector in basic/exampleB1 ?
Thank you !

If you just want to score energy deposited per event in NaI, then example B1 can be straightforwardly modified to do so by modifying the materials and geometry in the DetectorConstruction.cc module. If you want to simulate actual scintillation and count scintillation photons, extended/OpNovice is a better starting point. The OpNoviceDetectorConstruction.cc must be modified to account for whatever geometry you wish and the material properties, including scintillation properties, of NaI and optical properties of the materials surrounding it (for example, a PMT).

Thank you very much sir.
