I wish to simulate the individual decays of the Uranium and Thorium chain as well as other radioactive decay chains. I have been using the following macro under the assumption that the /grdm/nucleusLimits command would only decay the primary particle and would merely track the daughter while not decaying said daughter. This is not happening, the daughters continue decaying until a stable isotope is reached. What do I need to modify in order to keep all daughter particles from decaying? /Xe/generateCE 0 /Xe/saveHits 1 # /Xe/printModulo 25000 # detector parameters /Xe/detector/setTeflonReflectivity .95 /Xe/detector/setLXeScintillation 0 /Xe/detector/setLXeAbsorbtionLength 100. cm # gun: particle /Xe/gun/particle ion /Xe/gun/ion 89 228 0 0 /Xe/gun/energytype Mono /Xe/gun/energy 0 keV /Xe/gun/type RandomIC /grdm/nucleusLimits 89 89 228 228 /tracking/verbose 2 /run/verbose 2 /control/verbose 2 /run/beamOn 1
