Question Need to obtain any secondary electron energies.

From: Lachlan <Lachlan>

Hi there, I have just finished second year of physics and I am currently doing a project over the holidays investigating dose enhancement with the introduction of gold/tantalum nanoparticles into tumours, as well as learning Geant4 at the same time -_-

One of my tasks is to obtain the dose deposited by a simple linac gun which I have already set up, but the task I am having trouble with is obtaining the secondary electron spectrum (of course, to compare with and without nanoparticles in tumour). I can't seem to find any examples of how to get energies of particles produced.

As I said, I am not very experienced with Geant4 so I would be greatly appreciative if someone was able to push me in the right direction, or provide examples of what I am trying to achieve.

Thanks heaps!
