I am working on extending the code I wrote last year to simulate the passage of protons and heavy ions in water, bone and tissue. I would like to be able to measure the dose due to the individual fragments produced in the collisions of heavy ions with the target nuclei such as C11, O15 etc. However I have discovered that definitions of these particles are created 'on the fly' and I am unable to specify the names of these particles in the particle filter like I can for Alphas, deuterons, neutrons, tritons, helium 3 etc etc.
Is there anyone who knows how to modify the code (Based on scorer of example RE03) to track not only the low mass secondaries (i.e. alphas) but also heavy ion fragments?
I was thinking about modifing the library files to create a new filter to filter particles by charge. That way I could look for carbon isotopes by filtering by particles of charge +6 etc. Any Ideas?
