Question 30 keV protons: delta ray production on thin carbon foil 

Forum: Physics List
Date: 05 Jun, 2011
From: Emil Frlez <Emil Frlez>

 Hi GEANT4 experts -

 I am using the geant4.9.4/examples/extended/electromagnetic/TestEm5/
 as a template. I start with ~30 keV protons that I would like to shoot thru
 a 1E-4*mm thick carbon foil. I would like to count and track the delta ray   
 electrons ejected from the foil by going-thru protons.

 Looking at my PhysicsList.cc it appears that the delta ray production
 by protons is not included and, indeed, my protons produce no electrons
 passing thru the foil (only StepLimiter, Transportation, msc, hIoni appear
 as processes).  I was trying to google the G4 forums and the rest
 of the web, attempting to find an example of how to add delta ray production
 by hadrons to my Physics List, but was unable to find anything that would
 help me (I assume I just have to add a few lines in the PhysicsList.cc?

 Can anybody help?

                                                Thanks in advance, Emil
