thank you for your reply. I was experimenting with the Cut Values, and it does seem to improve the behavior of the protons in foils. However, I am afraid I don't exactly understand the concept of the "cut values" or the philosophy behind them. The official CERN's G4 manual states that
"To avoid infrared divergence, some electromagnetic processes require a threshold below which no secondary will be generated. Because of this requirement, gammas, electrons and positrons require production thresholds which the user should define. This threshold should be defined as a distance, or range cut-off, which is internally converted to an energy for individual materials." and "Each particle has a suggested cut in range (which is converted to energy for all materials)"
The explanations are somewhat unclear. I cannot figure out how (and why) reducing the Cut Values can "improve" the simulation, or make the motion of the particles in the media more real. I did not notice big difference in time needed to calculate the whole simulations even when I used 10 nm cut value.
