Dear Fluka users,
in my simulation, apart from the rest of the geometry regions to which I
chose to assign vacuum so as not to have interactions , I have a simple 65
MeV pencil-like beam interacting only with a slab of Kapton, (region BRA in
the file) 5Ám thick and placed at a distance of about 5.1 mm from the
The only detector that i placed is a one way scoring USRBDX detector, made
of vacuum and subdived into linear binning in energy and angle from 0 to
0.24 steradians and from 64.3 to 65 MeV in energy.
This detector is placed at a distance of 25 cm from the beam source..
Herewith attached you can see the plot that i obtained.
What i would like to konw from you is if it is possible to ask FluKa to
suppress the scattering parts which are clearly visible in the plot.
I tried to with any effort but they keep on coming out on the graph.
I pesonally think that those two components may be elastic and anelstic
scattering of protons against nuclei and electrons.
I also tried to suppress bremsstrahlung as you can see from the input file,
but no succes....
What would you suggest?!
Thanking you in advance,
