12
electron bremsstrahlung in Si 12 Some calculation with X 0 =9.36 cm Fraction of energy loss by electrons for bremsstrahlung For 300 µm silicon: exp -(0.03/9.36)= Other calculation: using the Bremsstrahlung energy spectrum

13
electron bremsstrahlung in Si 13 Some calculation with X 0 =9.36 cm (thanks to Sasha Bazilevsky for useful discussions) Fraction of energy loss by electrons for bremsstrahlung: Numerical calculation using bremsstrahlung gamma spectrum from PDG: Ratio of Integral over all spectrum/incoming energy = Number of gamma Energy (Gev)
