Question How to do a Simple Radioactive Decay, Am-241 

Keywords: Radioactive Decay, Am-241
Forum: Particles
Date: 15 Dec, 2005
From: Phillip Taddei <taddei@usna.edu>

I have modified example ExN03 to create a very simple scenerio with a detector that is made of silicon. It is in the World volume along with a box made of Americium-241.

I have been trying to make the Am-241 emit particles through radioactive decay. The radioactive decay code from example "exrdm," exrdmPhysListGeneral.cc, has been added to ExN03PhysicsList.cc, along with the necessary include file references.

It compiles fine. It still runs fine with the command "/run/beamOn X."

How do I turn on the radioactivity? Is there some kind of timer that can be turned on to simulate, for example, 600 seconds?

Thank you for your help.
