Question No gammas from radioactive decay  

Forum: Physics List
Date: 13 Sep, 2011
From: Daniel Cox <Daniel Cox>

Forgive me if this is an incredibly simple problem.

I'm trying to simulate radioactive decay, specifically Co60, I'm using the physics list from TestEm5 with added radioactive decay processes from rdecay01.

The beta decay works, I see the electron and the anti-neutrino, but then the daughter doesn't gamma decay and instead has an energy corresponding to the sum of the gammas it should have emitted.

Have I somehow managed to suppress atomic deexcitation or is that not inherent with radioactive decay? Either way what do I need to do to get the daughter producing gammas like it should?

Thanks in advance Danny
