[Gate-users] Spread-out Bragg peak(SOBP) using GATE

Hi Atiq,

If you don’t want to use RM wheels, ridge filters or similar devices, you can create SOBPs simply by summing up the dose of multiple simulations run with different beam energies. To calculate what beam energies to simulate and what weights to use for the summation, you can follow e.g. the model of Jette et al. (https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/0031-9155/56/11/N01/meta). You might have to tweak the values of their model a bit but it generally gave ok results for me.

Dear Users,
I want to perform a simulation of the spread-out Bragg peak(SOBP) using GATE code. I have gone through pdf user manual but did not get any hind.  But I have seen a webpage that talk about  SOBP.
 Can you please help me to know the steps in GATE to perform SOBP simulations or point me out some examples?
