I'm sorry if this sound hilarious, since I'm not a physicist at all.

In a book about radiology, I read that electrons with an energy <= 100 keV create Bremsstrahlung with a probability that is lower than 1 percent.

However the principal of my simulation project pointed out, that this is how it works in real live. 100 keV is used to create Bremsstrahlung.

Could it be that Geant4 is incapable of doing this and that there is something wrong with the implementation of G4LowEnergyBremsstrahlung?

In the Application Developers Book I found two things that could relate to this topic. The first one is biasing and the second one is process wrapping.

If I understand it correctly, biasing is used to "eliminate" particles that are no longer of interest, because of their low energy level for instance.

Is there a way to configure G4LowEnergyBremsstrahlung or do I have to configure something else to get Bremsstrahlung from the electrons with 100 keV? Please help me.
