The only processes are scattering and ionisation. In both standrad and low-energy implementation ion scattering is taken into account in average as a nucleat=r stopping power. This may provide simulation of ranges but not recoil. Unfortunatelly, we have no adequate scattering process so far. There is a new process G4CoulombScattering, which simulates single scattering of charged particle with recoil. It was tested only for relatively high energy and only for electrons, muons, and protons. never for ions. Just now I cannot tell you is it applicable for low energy ions or not (currently I am very busy with other things). So, in this area extra development is required. best regards, -- Vladimir Ivanchenko ### CERN PH SFT Tel: +41-22-76-78-871 Vladimir.Ivantchenko@cern.ch ###
