Hi, I'm shooting mu- into a 500 micron film of diamond and measuring the energy deposit. When I shoot a minimum ionizing mu (p=300 MeV/c), I get an average loss of ~291 keV (including secondaries which emerge from the back of the diamond). When I shoot high-energy muons (p=300 GeV/c), I get a mean loss of ~268 keV. My physics list includes Transportation, Decay, and Low-energy EM processes. Much of this was cobbled together from examples and code snippets found online. But I'm very confused how a minimum-ionizing particle could deposit MORE than a higher-energy one. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I might be doing wrong? Thanks. -AJ
