RE: Copper x-ray fluorescence lines La and Lb?

Dear Georgios
Are you using the latest FLUKA version ? The lower limit for photon transport
used to be 1 keV in previous version which could explained why the fluorescence
photons are not generated (nor transported) in your case. If you run the latest version
could you please send your input ?

Dear experts,

In FLUKA as it is written in the manual the emission of fluorescence photons
and Auger e- is implemented for all K and most L lines. The Copper element as I can see
in the output of a fluka run: "Maximum K-edge energy 0.00894320011 MeV"
the lines Ka=3D8.04 keV and Kb=3D8.9 keV are shown BUT not the La and Lb
(which are 0.93 and 0.95 keV respectively).
Are they implemented? Is any table with all lines/Auger that shows what FLUKA includes
for all implemented elements? It would be very useful to have that for better interpretation
of the simulation I am performing...

Thanks a lot in advance

Best regards
