I'm a beginner and I'm developing a VERY VERY VERY VERY simple simulation to measure the difference in a scintillator detector between: 1) a pure muon beam with a certain momentum (~200MeV/c); 2) a pure electron beam produced from muon decay. The electron beam should have the correct features in term of energy and in terms of geometry (divergence, beam).
As far as the muon beam there's no problem, while for the electron one I developed a simulation where the muon starts many meters before (~400 m) and considering just the electron events. However (with the divergence) the statistics is low: from 1000 muons, just 1 electron event is usable.
So the question is: have you an idea to create a "good" electron beam? As an example changing the muon lifetime (I know this means changing the physics, but I need just electron!).
Any comments or suggestion are very very welcome!
Please help me!
