Yes, but from what you said below, you don't even need to look at the
process (or do string comparisons).

That makes it somewhat simpler, in fact.  The only way to get an ion as a
secondary particle is through a nuclear interaction, so testing for the
process is kind of redundant.  

In your SteppingAction, you can look to see if any of the tracks are ions,
either with a string comparison, or with a dynamic cast:

    if (<secondary>->GetDefinition()->GetParticleType() == "nucleus")


    if (dynamic_cast<G4Ions*>(<secondary>->GetDefinition()))

This also takes care of the case where the nucleus absorbs the incident
particle and just gets a kick.  

There may be cases where the target nucleus absorbs the projectile and emits
a light-ion fragment (alpha particle, He3, etc.).  In that case, you'd see
two secondaries both pass the above tests (the fragment and the residual
