Question Energy loss seems to be overestimated. 

Forum: Electromagnetic Processes
Date: 22 Jan, 2015
From: Genie Jhang <Genie Jhang>


I’m currently writing a simulation package for an experiment.
Prior to using it, we’re checking if the energy loss of proton and alpha is the same as the other simulation.
We’re comparing GEANT4 energy loss data with TRIM/LISE++ data.

Attached links are proton and alpha energy loss plot with TRIM/LISE++ result.


As you can see, in relatively low energy, energy loss curves doesn’t match each other.
We couldn’t find what the problem is.

Currently, we’re writing our code on top of FairROOT package.
So, GEANT4 is steered over G4VMC interface.
Cuts used for running simulation is following.

If you have any clue or comments or recommendation, please don’t hesitate to mail us.
Anything could be helpful

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
