Question Non-Ionizing energy loss (NIEL) 

Forum: Space Applications

Hello G4 developers and users,

I would like to estimate displacement damage (DD) in a silicon detector in space. I understand that it is calculated as a product of the Non-Ionizing energy loss (NIEL) and the particle fluence. My question here is about NIEL calculation.

I found that there is a method called GetNonIonizingEnergyDeposit() which can be accessed from the G4step class. Is this method appropriate to estimate NIEL and thus the DD dose? Has anyone tried it?

Thank you.
