Hi Tore,

1) You have understood correctly.   The LE models for d, t and alpha do 
not do any physics above 100 MeV/n.   When they get an incident particle 
above that limit, they return the incident particle unchanged.  I believe 
this feature is the only reason that the physics lists call these models 
at high energies.  That way the program will not crash due to a lack of 

2) The light ion binary cascade does not "officially" work above 10 GeV/N.
It has been used at higher energies, but it has not been validated there
and we have seen crashes.

3) The G4IonsSihverCrossSection will work at higher energies, but as you
found, it hs not yet been included in the physics lists.  No reason not 
to, though.
