  Somewhere in your application, you must define something like:
  new G4UnitDefinition("inverse_cm","1/cm" ,"inverseLength",1./cm);

  The category "inverseLength" will be automatically created

 The categories "Time" and "Frequency" are already defined and work well (as far as know ...)
 See in source/global/management or tape /units/list
