[Gate-users] How to use experimental cross sections of C11 and O15 instead of analytically calculated cross sections in Gate?

Hi Atiq,

I am not in the field of the proton beam, but I used the "secondary
production actor" to measure the production of some radionuclides in a
decay chain (Ra-223 or Ac-225). Maybe it could be helpful for you. Probably
if you combine the  Secondary production actor with a Filter on particle
type (C11[0,0] and O15[0,0]), you could obtain more precise information.
But first, just run a simple secondary production actor to see the produced

Another option is to use a killer and you will see the number of C11 and
O15 nuclei were killed. But then you lost the posterior interactions of
these nuclei.
