None Use of NIST material database through GDML? 

Forum: Persistency
Date: 27 Oct, 2014
From: Jonathan Wrobel <Jonathan Wrobel>

Could anyone provide an example of the proper GDML syntax for using the NIST database for element/material definition (such as G4_Galactic)? A talk by Santin (last slide - attached & link below) says it's possible but I could not find any further information online.

Also, if it is required, I could not find an explanation for how to enable the NIST option at the setup phase (see last slide as well), so any help there would also be appreciated.

The NIST tables are the most accurate way to define materials, especially for hadronic physics, so it would be great to be able to leverage all of the work that went into building them. Thank you for your time and help.

Best regards,
Jonathan
