This exercise asumes you have some knowledge of programing and requires you to write a small program.

Tasks:

  • Write a Monte-Carlo program that simulates absorption of gamma rays from a source with e.g. 4 distinct gamma-rays, emitted with known energy and intensity. The program should present the resulting spectrum from a detector crystal measuring the energy absorbed in the crystal. Unlike a real detector, the program (user) should be able switch on and off the following absorption effects: 1) Full energy absorption (photo peak), 2) Compton electrons, and 3) Pair formation.
