dear Geant4 users
I have a question related to the proton interactions in a medium, like plastic scintillator. In my simulation I consider protons with kinetic energies above 10 MeV and I am interested in the amount of energy they deposit in the material. I am also interested in processes that lead to energy loss, for instance if it was ionization or scattering on a nucleus. I want to know also amount of energy deposited by the electrons ionized by incident proton. however when I check information stored in a G4Track object or G4VHit object I see only that the proton has interacted and deposited some energy in medium but I do not know how it happened...So here comes my questions: is it possible to extract information what kind of process is responsible for the proton energy loss? to me it looks like Geant4 somehow hides information about secondary particles induced by protons and delivers only "integrated" information about the proton energy loss including energy loss of all secondaries that proton has produced. Am I right?
best regards Adam
