Question Radioactive decay and activation 

Forum: Hadronic Processes
Date: 24 Mar, 2014
From: George Dedes <George Dedes>

Hi,

doing some particle therapy/PET simulations, I wonder whether activation is simulated. As far as I understand, all radioactive nuclei created in an event will decay via Radioactivedecay within the same event. Is this right? If yes, then what happens for nuclei that have long half lives (ie 20min for 11C)?
