Question Ion particles in svalue example

From: Kirstie Caravani <Kirstie Caravani>

Hi,

I am very new to using Geant4, and I was trying to simulate Ac 225 and its decay chain in the svalue example. I know the svalue example is working as I was able to run the default e- particle 300.00eV and the svalue was calculated as expected. However with the following macro:

/gun/particle ion
/gun/ion 89 225
/run/beamOn 1000

The run summary shows 0eV energy deposited and 0Gy/Bq.s as the S value. I even tried a larger sphere but had the same results. What would I need to change in the original files (possibly the physics list I guess) to be able to simulate ions (not only Ac 225, but of course others used in nuclear medicine)?

Thanks,
Kirstie.
