I am working on a simulation for x-ray detection in a porous lead-glass material. (ie, a slab of lead glass with periodic "wholes"/channels of vaccum ) Absorbed x-rays trigger electron release in the material and any electron which falls into a whole will count as being detected. The distance from whole to whole is on the order of 1-5 microns and the wholes themselves have a diameter of anywhere from 5-25 microns. Since xray detection is exculisvely determined by release of elecrons and their subsequent travel into a vaccum channel, I am concerned about the range cuts or production thresholds settings.
I would like some advice on how to optimize Geant4 for my purpose. I fear perhaps with an impropper range cut or production threshold that instead of triggering or producing a secondardy electron which would lead to a detected event that it might be absorbed and counted as deposited energy and that event would be lost and this would be semi-arbitrary based on guessing a good value for a range cut.
I was hoping someone with some experience in this matter could offer some advice.
Thank you, Justin Ducote
