Question How do I define 37Ar^- 

Forum: Particles
Date: 11 Aug, 2011
From: Spencer Behling <Spencer Behling>

I want to be able to simulate 37Ar^- moving in an electric field. 37Ar^- decays after ~260ns to 37Ar + e-. How do I set this up? I can make 37Ar by using

G4ParticleDefinition * ion = particleTable->GetIon(18, 37, 0); particleGun ->SetParticleDefinition(ion);

How do I specify the Ar to be Ar^-? I also don't know how to tell the Ar^- that it should turn into Ar + e- with a lifetime of 260ns. When I look at the G4IonTable it tells me that the ion is Ar37[0.0] with a charge of 18 and that it is stable.
