I still have some confuse with it. the detector efficiency, in my case ,means the number of events absorbed and divide with the number of events incident on the absorber. This is based from the book by Glenn F. Knoll, Radiation Detection and measurement. So I think I need get the number of events absorbed by the absorber( that is a BGO crystal). but i don't know how to do it.

when one particle enters the BGO crystal, there are some possibility, one is it pass through the crystal, and another is it loses its total energy and is absorbed by the crystal. It appears clearly for me I should count the latter case. but how to know one particle lose its total energy after it enter the BGO?

thanks for your help
