I'm trying to simulate the photon decay spectrum of Eu155 in Geant4. I made a plot of geant4's resulting spectra from using /gps/ion <Z> <A> (the plot also shows what the spectrum should approximately look like) and it doesn't match up frequency wise with what other literature states. I've attached all these.
What I want to know is how the intensity column works and how to adjust it such that the fractional decays of the photons aligns with the literature.
From what I can gather so far, the intensity listed in the G4 Decay file is the probability of reaching that excited Gd155 State. So then how do the photon probabilities factor in? I feel like this situation would similarly apply to other radioactive isotopes, did anyone encounter this and possibly find a work around?
So far my work around has been 'trial and error' i.e put in all the photon energies and guess intensity numbers until the spectrum comes out how I want it to. As you can imagine its quite laborious and unpredictable. I've attached that file too (Eu155_z63.a155).
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks, - Giuseppe
