Question Phyiscs list for low-energetic alpha particles 

Forum: Physics List
Date: 20 Oct, 2016
From: Andreas Mathis <Andreas Mathis>

Dear all,

I am currently simulating the energy deposit and the stopping of low-energetic alpha particle (~ 5 MeV) in a gas with similar properties than air. Therefore, I am employing the low energy phyiscs lists, such as G4EmLivermorePhysics or G4EmStandardPhysics_option4.

Unfortunately, I need to know the profile of the Bragg curve as exact as possible. Are there any further options required to achieve this?

For example, comparing my code to the one of the Electromagnetic examples (7 & 11), I see that in 7) additional proccesses are added (G4BraggIonGasModel and G4BetheBlochIonGasMode) and in 11) several options are added (SetBuildCSDARange and SetDEDXBinningForCSDARange).

Would you recommend the usage of some of these additional options?

Thank you very much and best regards,
