Hello,

thank you very much for your observation. The example is already fixed and the fixed version will be available in the next public release of Geant4.

Note also, that it is allowed to define whatever name for an element, the name is not used in the run time but may be used in the user code to construct materials or for other reasons. This method of construction of element is general but we recommend to use it only in special cases. The best is to define elements (and materials) via Geant4 internal database interface. In this example it is possible to do via UI command:

/testem/det/setAbsMat G4_Cr

If the internal DB is used, then correct densities, element, and isotope compositions will be created automatically. There some corrections to stopping powers which are accurate only if DB materials are used.
