Generating ions

ions can be generated with the options ION_P [1] to sets Z, A and Charge State of the primary particle. Setting the charge state is optional.

  • Example 1: -ION_P=”6 12” sets the Z to 6, A to 12. Charge will be Z.

  • Example 2: -ION_P=”6 12 4” sets the Z to 6, A to 12, and charge to 4.

  • Notice: BEAM_P still sets the particle momentum, and its type must be GenericIon. For example:

    -BEAM_P=”GenericIon, 4*GeV, 90*deg, 0*deg”
