Photon Energy deposition in a pure Ge crystal

Determine the deposition of photons ranging in energy from 10 eV to 3 MeV in a pure Germanium crystal assuming an infinite block.

Attenuation coefficient about 1/5.323 cm = 0.19 cm or about 2 mm to maybe 2 cm?

Create file containing Photon Energy, ProcessID, step #, Energy Lost, Position for each step a photon takes through the Germanium crystal.

Why do SN>1 photons loose energy at Z = -9000?


10 eV

500 keV

Change units on Y-axis to Energy (eV?)

"No Backscattering" Do another plot with momentum cut Pz>0

Add 9000 to Z-position to start Ge barrier at zero
