when I ran default proton_therapy.mac I get a good Bragg peak which is agreeing with the experimental data includes inside the code. However, when I try to use ion_therapy.mac to compare it with 330 Mev/u of carbon12 from GSI, which has an experimentally a peak at about 20 cm in water I get a peak at about 6 cm, also I get the same depth when using energy of 135 Mev/u.
I only changed the energy inside ion_therapy.mac to be 330 Mev/u once and 135 Mev/u other.
I still don't know what is the physical meaning of sigmaenergy variable.
Is the error because I don't use GSI synchrotron geometry? Or that I have to change other things inside either the code or the macro files?
Please see the attached Bragg peak for 330 Mev/u of carbon-12.
I will be appreciated for your assistance to solve the problem.
