Re: Question G4RadioactiveDecay for beta-decay (Ilya Kraev)

Dear all,

There is example on usage of the G4RadioactiveDecay in new GEANT distribution. So the question "how to use it" is solved.

But when I compiled this example with GEANT4.6.2 and tried to generate beta-spectrum for the 60Co (long-lived state) I found that the spectrum does not look like it should be. It seems that there is something wrong with the normalization of the branches intensities: the second high energy branch of the decay that has the branching ratio of 0.12% has almost the same intensity as the first one.

Is it a problem of GEANT or databases it uses and how to solve it?

Thanks for any help, Ilya.
