Dear Alexander,

I believe that the problem arises from the fact you turned on the photoproduction of mu pairs only, rather then all types of photonuclear interaction.
I would suggest you to have a look at lecture on electromagnetic interaction from the last fluka course
and to add a PHOTONUC card with an empty SDUM.

Subject: [fluka-discuss]: Muon production questions

Dear FLUKA experts,

I am trying to simulate muon production via an electron beam interacting with a target (see attached file) we have some simulations from GEANT4 and I am attempting to reproduce the results.

There are some discrepancies between the simulations for example, I can only produce muons if I introduce a biasing factor in WHAT(3) of the PHOTONUC card (maybe I am missing something?).

Also, I may be having issues understanding the units of the USRTRACK output. As I understand it, the units from this card are in part/(cm^2.GeV.primary) is the energy in units of kinetic energy or total energy?

Any advice you could offer would be very helpful.
