[Gate-users] how to add carbon11 decay process in GATE?

Dear Ze Chen,

check if you have in your physics list the RadioactiveDecay, otherwise 
you will not see any C-11 or any other radioactive nuclei.

If you do not have it, then add the following line after the 
"/gate/physics/addProcess Decay" line:

/gate/physics/addProcess RadioactiveDecay

Good luck!
