Question G4DynamicParticle effective charge  

Keywords: effective charge total occupancy orbital occupancy

i am using geant4 v4.8.2.p01 and i am interested in the effective charge of recoil target nuclei impinged by incident neutrons. Thus i have used the G4DynamicParticle class to extract the effective charge of 12C via GetCharge(). As expected, the average effective charge increase if the incident energy is increased and for the energy range investigated 12C target nuclei recoil with an effective charge ranging from 1.47 ( 1 MeV incident neutron ) to 1.63 ( 19 MeV incident neutron ). Nevertheless, if i now want to see the electron occupancy in orbitals K,L ( GetOccupancy(0),(1))as well as the total occupancy i find 0 in both case which means , if i am right, that the nucleus is fully stripped. How can i interprete such a result? thanks in advance.
