Question Not killing electrons in electric field 

Forum: Fields: Magnetic and Otherwise

From: Robert Schaefer <Robert Schaefer>

Dear G4-community,

i have the following issue:

I'm working on a simulation of an ionization chamber, with a radial electrical field. Radation entering are 100eV photons, which ionize neon atoms. The photoelectrons travel to the electrode and get detected there.

However the photoelectrons in my chamber get killed before they reach the wire. Is it possible to set a negativ low kinetic energy limit for the electrons? I want to kill the particles only when they've reached the wire, not when their kinetic energy is zero.

Is something like this possible, to kill the particles on other conditions than their minimal kinetic energy? I know that this will make my application slow, but I don't need performance..

I want to keep the electron moving, since it is in an electric field, despite that the kinetic energy reaches zero.

Cheers, Robert
