Dear community,

right now I'm working on my thesis, using flair for FLUKA but beeing a
beginner. I have to do a simulation of the inhomogenous activation in a
medical linear accelerator.
I already implemented all needed components. But I still have some problems:

1) Electrons, getting accelerated to high energies, are deflected by 270
degrees. The deflection occurs by magnets. How can I implement the
deflection - in three parts 90 degrees - in FLUKA (I'm thinking about
MGNFIELD or EMF but beeing not sure)?

2)After that, the electrons are directed at a target. Colliding, high
energy x-rays were produced. Is it possible to make this change from
electrons to x-rays in FLUKA? If so, how?

Thx for your help!
