Hi,

I am using Geant4 (version geant4.10.02.b01 ) where I am unable to activate the fluorescence of Aluminium when using Am241 as Primary particle after a layer of Aluminium. No problem to "detect" x-rays in case of a layer of copper.

My physics List contains the Livermore PhysicsList G4EmLivermorePhysics() and (just to be sure I have added)

G4UAtomicDeexcitation* de = new G4UAtomicDeexcitation();
	de->SetFluo(true);
	de->SetAuger(true);
	de->SetPIXE(true);

Also:

G4ProductionCutsTable::GetProductionCutsTable()->SetEnergyRange(100*eV, 1*GeV);

I have also tried to use Si26 or Si27 as Primary particles since their decays include Aluminium X-Rays and my code crashed in both cases

Is there any known problem with Aluminium x-rays in this geant4 version?

Thanks a lot
