Auger production cuts

Hi all,

I am trying to control the auger production cuts, however, I guess there is only IgnoreCut True or False. When I turned it off as /process/em/deexcitationIgnoreCut false, the auger contribution seems to low than my references (MIRD or Howell), but when I turned it on, the auger contribution goes higher than the references.

I have utilized the function that all I know,
/process/em/~ (fluo, deexcitation, pixe, auger, augerCascade, lowestElectronEnergy …)
and using, /cuts/setLowEdge like that.

Would it be there any control function for auger production cuts?

Thank you!


there are only two options:

a) you define cuts via “/run/setCut …” UI command - in this case both delta-electrons and Auger cascade electrons have production threshold corresponded to this cut_in_range.

b) you use “/process/em/deexcitationIgnoreCut true” - in that case delta-electrons will have production threshold, Auger electrons - no.
