I am working with Geant 4.9.3.p01 and Radioactive Decay Module and I have the same problem as Yeongduk reported three years ago.
Reading the physics manual it says on section 12.9 (Electron ionisation): “The interaction leaves the atom in an excited state. The deexcitation of the atom is simulated as described in section 12.10.” And on section 12.7.2 (Photoelectric effect): “The interaction leaves the atom in an excited state. The deexcitation of the atom is simulated as described in section 12.10.” But it does not say anything about atomic deexcitation on the internal conversion section (31.7).
Therefore I think that G4 does not emit X-rays (atomic relaxation) after an internal conversion process. I would like to know if it is on development or it is a bug. In the second case, have I to report it somewhere?.
