I am attempting to simulate a germanium detector in order to determine the pulse height spectrum or energy spectrum due to gamma ray photons. The source is a radioactive isotope that decays by beta minus decay.
I have used rdecay01 and example B3 so far to get familiar with processes involved in radioactive decay in Geant. Now I am moving on to rdecay02 to determine the gamma creation time for the purpose of determining any peak summing effects that may occur from simultaneous gamma emission from different radioactive nuclei. I noticed that rdecay02 has already this feature included as part of the detector response.
My question is, is there a way to get the gamma creation time written to a file as apposed to just the output terminal? The information collected is quite large when read from the terminal and would require very complicated processing to extract the relevant information.
I noticed that in the stepping action, ntuples are used however I do not have root and I am unfamiliar
Any help would be very appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
