Question simulating sum peaks 

Forum: Hits, Digitization and Pileup
Date: 21 Jul, 2011
From: Athreya Shankar <Athreya Shankar>

hello,

I am interesting in simulating a Co60 spectrum. Co60 emits gamma rays at two energies - 1.33 and 1.17 MeV. thus, one would obtain two peaks.

but there is also a sum peak that is obtained - caused due to the deposition of 1.33 and 1.17 MeV within the dead time of the detector- thus resulting in a peak at 2.5 MeV.

How can we obtain this sum peak- that is how to specify the dead time of the detector in geant?

Thanks in advance, Athreya
