I am simulating the neutron-carbon interaction and trying to generate the distribution of energy deposition in diamond through 12C(n,alpha)9Be nuclear reaction. In the spectrum I am just getting a single vertical line which is indicating that in each event a single value of energy has been deposited in the detector(which is practically not possible). I have reduced the thickness of detector below the range of alpha generated in diamond, still I didn't get broadening in the energy deposition.
I have also observed the spectrum experimentally and experimental result is a broad distribution around the maxima (looks like Gaussian). Although this broadening may be attributed due to the electronic noise (due to the electronic components used to acquire the spectrum) but there should be some intrinsic broadening in the spectrum due to detector itself ( due to energy straggling).
Please let me know how can I get the expected spectrum.
