Hi Marek,

Yes, my question was in the context of using G4NistManager to create element or material. Thanks for the explanation.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that when creating an element, one could create it as it occurs naturally (with its different isotopes) or as the single isotope with the largest fraction. I can't locate that source, but I thought perhaps the argument passed to G4NistManager would determine which would get created. (Perhaps I'm mistaken and calls to FindOrBuildElement("Al") and FindOrBuildMaterial("G4_Al") both return the naturally occurring stuff, as element or material, resp.)

Regards, Neil
