comment Dual and Multiple scattering of protons in light elements
Thank you very much for your answer! To sum up, you wouldn't consider dual and multiple scattering important, thus you wouldn't include it in a simulation?

@JonCuster : Thank's for your comment! Ignoring channeling effects for sure. Protons of energy in the range 2-3 MeV.

comment Dead time in data acquisition
That is really a nice approach! Let the user chose! I think that is very fair! An estimation of a silicon detector dead time? How to measure or estimate the dead time of a detector?(If you agree, I can post it as a new question).

comment Dead time in data acquisition
Thank you very much for your answer! It is really educative. The thing is that I need a rough estimate of the whole system's dead time. Reading your answer, I think that the computation of dead time, by dividing live time with real time, while multiplying by a roughly estimated factor(of 3 for instance) would be a way to estimate system's dead time. Do you think that this would work?

comment Dead time in data acquisition
I can agree to that. The thing is I cannot find a way to show to the user the system's dead time which includes detectors, electronics and software.

@JohnRennie: Exactly! The thing is I cannot measure that time. I can measure how long my measurement is on(real time) an how long does my system records(live time). Is it correct to say so?

comment Why apply voltage on an Si detector only on atmosphere or high vacuum
Exactly! That's my question! There isn't air inside the detector or the cable, is there? The only air that exists is between the detector case(which is in 0 potential) and the vacuum chamber(which is also in 0 potential). So where would the dielectric breakdown occur?

@ChrisMueller : Thank you very much for your answer! Very interesting answer!!! However, there is something I don't understand... My Si detector has only one cable, where the voltage is applied. Where will the spark occur? Between the detectors frame(i.e. ground) and the cable's central core?

@ChrisMueller : Thank's for your comment! I want to use it on $10^{-1}$ Torr. It's not atmosphere and definitely it's not high vacuum!

@CarlWitthoft : Thank you very much for your comment! I like your approach, because I can't find a reason on why the pressure should be bellow a certain limit.
