Question Radioactive decay of tritium. 

Forum: Hadronic Processes
Date: 14 Apr, 2016
From: Antanas Bukartas <Antanas Bukartas>


I am trying to model a liquid scintillation detector with a liquid tritium source. For the modeling of the source i am using radioactive decay libraries of Geant 10.02. I succeeded in implementing everything I need to the OpNovice example. And it works for any other nuclei (for example Carbon 14, Cobalt 60, etc..) except tritium. In the viewer I can see a dot (generic ion) being created, but there is no secondary particles. I tried setting the cuts with
// SetCutsWithDefault();
  G4ProductionCutsTable::GetProductionCutsTable()->SetEnergyRange(120*eV, 1*GeV);
in the physics list, as the energy of tritium beta is 18.6 keV. But still, no secondaries.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
