But later I learnt the relationship between it and the maximum energy imparted to a free electron by hadron/ion. I did the calculation and realized the deuteron does not have enough energy to impart the electron energy at least the ionization potential of the metallic target. Deuteron energy is ~ 120 keV It is actually hadron ionization and OK in this group. One question: I want to simulate electron production using the deuterium threshold energy in Titanium of 214 keV and above. Then plot the values on a graph and extrapolate to the energy of deuteron of interest to me (~120 keV). What do you think of this method of going round this challenge? I am assuming it might be a smooth function and varies very slowly. Also, I found out that even at deuteron energy above the 214 keV that the mean number of liberated electrons are varies with low energy limit. In other words, in "/cuts/setLowEdge value", as I varies what is assigned to value from 1 eV to 100 ev, the mean electron produced also varies. I was expecting it to be constant since the mean ionization potential sets the threshold energy in this case. Any explanation. Thanks very much.
