hi John,
 Thank you so much for your nice explanation.  I got the Idea of the track
ID but I am still confuse with the trackLocalTime track local time
variable. What is the reference of each time stamp?
 I actually want to calculate the clustering time (rough time needed to
deposit all the energy of the particle entered into the detector). Let say,
we have a gamma of 4.4 MeV. it hit the detector having pdgEncoding=22, it
produces many hits in different crystals. I calculate the cluster
size(number of distinct hits in the all crystals). I also want to calculate
the time required for the formation of the cluster. Simply say, time needed
to deposit all the energy of the incident particles. In my opinion, gammas
may have short clustering time than heavy particles. Is any way to do this
