Abstract: The calculation of gamma-ray detection efficiencies and cascade summing effects in germanium-detectors is often calculated using Monte Carlo codes based on a computer model of the detection system. A computer model can never fully replicate reality and it is important to understand how various parameters affect the results. This work concentrates on two issues that are frequently overlooked, namely (i) the effect of having a Ge-crystal that is tilted inside the cryostat or (ii) the effect of having a model of a Ge-crystal with rounded edges (bulletization) compared to a right cylinder.
