Question proton inelastic process causing problems 

Forum: Physics List
Date: 18 Aug, 2011
From: Athreya Shankar <Athreya Shankar>

hello,

I am interested in studying the interaction of 0-100 MeV protons and 0-30 MeV electrons with a CsI(Tl) scintillator. For the protons, apart from the standard EM processes, I have also included proton inelastic process.

Now, if I shoot in protons of 80 MeV, quite a few protons deposit 80.005, 80.0008 MeV, etc.,ie., they deposit marginally MORE than their incident energy. But, when I run the simulation after de-registering the inelastic process,such energy depositions are not observed.

Is it wrong to include the inelastic process for protons of these energies? Or, are such observations expected?

I also attach the physics list that I am using.

Thanks in advance,

Athreya
