Makoto, thank you for the prompt reply -- that does help! It looks like TotalEnergyDeposit means -dE/dx to orbital electrons...?

But, it also raises a question as to why it was implemented like that. If a gamma undergoes compton scattering on an orbital electron, doesn't that count as ionization?

I am trying to write a code that will determine the total energy deposition by gammas, neutrons, electrons, and protons -- and I am trying to make the code as particle-independent as possible. What would you recommend I use? Currently I am just looking at the change in kinetic energy...is there a better way of doing that?

Thanks,

Areg
