Hi Vladimir,

thanks for your message.

In fact, the purpose is indeed to add some bias to the results. In the application that I am currently working on the purpose is to have a database with some cross sections to then have a quick computation of some secondary production and energy deposition. So far, the case with incident carbon ions is implemented and in order to assess the need to model "tertiaries" I was trying to have carbon ions with hadronic interactions (to have secondaries) and then test a situation where the secondaries only have EM interactions and another where secondaries have EM+hadronic (to have "tertiaries"). However, to accomplish this I would need to decouple carbon ions from all other GenericIons.

What you propose does not apply in my case because this analytical tool includes hadronic cross sections for carbon ions only (therefore only EM modeling is possible for all other particles). The purpose of the test I want to do is twofold: 1) validate the analytical tool and 2) assess the need to include other hadronic cross sections. The item 2 can be easily done as you propose (using the SteppingAction) but not the item 1 in the current status of the analytical tool.
