Scintillators have numerous applications in fundamental research and in for commercial use, including being a common detector for particle physics experiments and the basis for many nuclear medecine instruments. It is a quasi-universal requirement that the light detected in scintillator setups be maximised. Inorganic scintillators will be optimized and characterized by the simulation of several types ($PWO_{4}, ZnWO_{4}, CaWO_{4}, CdWO_{4}, BGO $ and $LSO$) and differents geometries (cylinder and parallelepiped) of scintillators. This simulation will be analyzed in GEANT4 (Geometry ANdTracking), a platform to simulate the passage of particles through matter of photons. Geant4 (GEometry ANd Tracking)
