Re: Question count only isotopes with various decay modes (Cristian Bungau)

Hi Cristian,

I am no expert with isotope production simulations, but seeing that nobody has answered you yet, I can maybe try to give you some hits.

1) in your SteppingAction you need to look for secondaries that have been produced in the current step and whether these are 'isotopes'. (how this is done is the topic of another thread in this or another forum)

2) then, you need to access the G4DecayTable (Channel etc.) of the isotope (probably through G4IsotopeProperty)

My guess is the code at:

http://www-geant4.kek.jp/lxr/source/processes/hadronic/models/radioactive_decay/src/G4RadioactiveDecay.cc#L868

should help. I'd hope that someone who actually knows the answer will post because there is no G4 example whose code does what you want.

Peter
