I am running a simulation using a 511keV point source 6.5 cm away from a 20cm thick germanium detector.
I run for 100,000 events and get what seems to be far too many events in the germanium x-ray peak.
I have approx 1300 events at 11keV and only 90 at 500 keV.
It seems that every x-ray is being treated as an energy deposit in its own right, although a real detector would not be able to separate it from the main charge deposited.
does anybody have an idea how to stop it doing that ?
Thanks for any help and apologies if this is really stupid.
