Dear Giovanni,

I don't know how it's related but I changed in my "PrimaryGeneratorAction" file the particle to shoot, now it's GenericIons, and it works! Now I can generate C14 ions and I see how it decays to an e-, an anti_nu_e and a N14 ion. The thing is that I was happier shooting electrons to the slab of silicon but now the C14 ion decays very quickly and it creates the three particles shooted in random directions so sometimes my electrons don't reach the slab. There is no point to shoot the ions in a certain direction. Anyway, this is how it works and I guess I can't do anything because is how the physics of this process works.

The program tracks the three particles when they are generated, do you know if I can disable the anti_nu_e and the N14 tracking? because I'm only interested in the e- so I only need to track that and that would save time and computing resources (when I simulate 1000000 particles the pc gets frozen)

Thanks a lot! Jorge
