Hi Bea,

If you use the method GetDeltaEnergy you must also kill (not track) all the secondaries since GetDeltaEnergy does:

return fpPostStepPoint->GetKineticEnergy() - fpPreStepPoint->GetKineticEnergy();

You'd get the wrong result if you tracked the secondaries too. The delta energy is the energy deposited into the medium + the energy needed to create the secondaries.
