Description

Hi,

The displacement due to SCE can project the charge to the TPC which is different than TPC corresponding to the original G4Step position. Maybe SCE should be used to calculate which TPC is involved in the LArVoxelReadout::ProcessHits, before the fixed tpc number is passed to LArVoxelReadout::DriftIonizationElectrons in http://nusoft.fnal.gov/larsoft/doxsvn/html/LArVoxelReadout_8cxx_source.html#l00324 ? Just guessing, but anyway SCE in ProtoDUNE SP and DP is big and basically can move charge between TPCs, or from dead areas between TPCs towards active areas.

Thanks,
Robert
