I’m trying to simulate the charge spread in a semiconductor detector (CdTe) due to a photon interacting in the detector (100keV). For this electrons should be generated with a minimum energy of 4eV and therefore I used the EmLivermorePhysicsList. I expected around 25000 electrons produced inside the semi-conductor but I’am getting around 2000 electrons, even though the production cut energy is set to 4eV. Is this an error in the choice of the physics list and should I be using an ultra low energy like DNA?
Thanks for your help,
