I am searching for a Monte Carlo library to use for X-ray tube studies, i.e. 150keV electrons incident on a tungsten target to produce X-rays. In particular, I am interested in performing X-ray flux studies as well as studies of the temperature of the tungsten target. I am fairly certain that GEANT4 can handle the flux studies. However, can GEANT4 perform such temperature studies? I know that it can record energy deposition in a material per event, but temperature has an implicit time-dependence to it; it is not immediately apparent to me how event-by-event-processing Monte Carlo libraries can handle such studies. Has anyone done such a study in GEANT4? Can you explain how you did it or point me to such references? I am new to GEANT4, so I apologize if the answer is obvious... Thanks so much, Aaron
