  In Geant4, we call gamma range : 5*totalInteractionLength (e.g. photoelec+compton+conversion)
  This is reasonable : proba = exp(-5), but somewhat arbitrary. I am not sure this definition is enough for neutron.
  Another approach is to consider the end of depth edep profile. Sush a plot can be done with TestEm11 for gamma (histo 1) or Hadr07 (histo 10)
