Hello Vladimir, thanks a lot for your answer. In fact I was already controlling the time of the decay products (electron, alphas...), not only of the radioactive nuclei. My problem is that for example for the 214Bi-214Po sequence in the 238U chain, the alpha from Po is detected at exactly the same time that the electron from Bi, which is not real. In any case, I checked that changing the definition of hit times from PreStepPoint to PostStepTime does not solve the problem. Thanks again and best regards, Susana
