Question How do I simulate low density materials combined with high densities?

Dear Geant4 users,

I try to simulate the dose to an air-cavity inside a detector made of carbon. The energies are very low (10-200 keV). However, my results are far from accurate. I suspect that a large fraction of the electrons produced in carbon are not tracked since they have such low energy and stop within a few um. Can someone confirm this or have a better explanation?

Also if this is the issue, how can I control the minimum range which my electrons are tracked.

I'm using the penelope physics list.

Kind regards, Anders
