1- Did you run 1 event with tracking/verbose 2, to be sure that Ra210 decay correctly ?
2- Attached is a macro for TestEm1. Detector is an 'infinite' medium. Total energy deposit is the 'signal'.
     As it can be seen from alpha spectrum in previous mail, the full decay chain on Ra210 includes several alpha decays. The signal is the sum of these alpha; it is always > 7 MeV. See plot fullDecay.

    To 'force' the first decay only, you must activate the command /grdm/nucleusLimits. See plot singleDecay
