Hello, I am using geant4-10-02-patch-02 on Ubuntu and I am rather new to Geant4
I would like to simulate low energy electrons in Si, so I have chosen the microelectronics example (from the advanced section) which works correctly.
I need to look at the electrons backscattered from a sample, so I have increased the size of the world volume, used a sample a few 10s of microns thick and added a sensitive detector as is done in the B2 example. The sensitive detector is behind the position of the electron gun, and I should obtain electrons with energies less than the primary electron energy. I obtain hits in this sensitive detector in the output root file which I have examined using root. Thus far everything OK.
However, things are not right. When I run my test simulation, the graphics shows the detectors and target, but appears then disappears then appears, then disappears etc etc, but never shows any of the tracks. Also what I get in the output root file are electrons with the primary electron energy and electrons with exceedingly low energy, but nothing in between. Evidently the simulation is not functioning as I would expect. However, I am a bit stuck with regards to trying to fathom what is going on. e.g. - I cannot partially remove the sensitive detector to try to get back to the original example !. Can anyone suggest tips for trying to debug this situation ?
