I'm generating the decay of a radioactive source. Since the activity of the source is quite intense, I'm trying to simulate the pile-up generating more than one primary particle per event, separated by a certain amount of time. In order to be able to set the time of decay of each of my particles, I would like the decays to be immediate, meaning that the time of decay is zero for that particular isotope. If the time is zero, I can set the actual time I want the decay to occur. In summary, my question is: is there a way to set the lifetime of a particular ion to zero, in order to make the decay happen at time zero? I've tried using
ion = G4IonTable::GetIonTable()->GetIon(z, a, 0.);
but it doesn't seem to work.
Any ideas? Thanks a lot.
