Question Possibilities of simulating dynamic targets 

Forum: Physics List
Date: 23 Jun, 2014
From: Debasish Datta <Debasish Datta>

Dear all,

I am quite a novice user of GEANT4 and trying to simulate the effect of energetic ion (with keV - MeV energy) impact on metal nanoparticles. In such cases, it is an well known fact that some atoms of the target materials (here, the nanoparticles) will be sputtered out and the target will get eroded. So my question is, can it be possible to incorporate the effect of such erosion and subsequent target modification in the GEANT simulation? In other words, I need to change the target composition and geometry slightly after each ion impact. Can I do that?

Thanking in anticipation.
