Introduction

This tutorial is based on the Monoenergetic proton pencil beam example. The code run with several beam energies to produce spread out Bragg peak.

The water cube is divided into slices using class G4PVReplica. At each slice the deposited dose and energy for every energy beam is computed. The energy and the dose are scored using classes G4UserSteppingAction and G4UserRunAction. The proton beams are simulated using G4ParticleGun class. There is an option to chose among several EM and the QGSP_BIC_EMY physics lists.

How to run the tutorial

Connect to the HEP cluster and create folder ProtonSBFolder in your area
ssh -X username@plus1.hep.ucl.ac.uk 

username@plus1.hep.ucl.ac.uk's password: type your password here

[username@plus1 ~]$ mkdir ProtonSBFolder 

[username@plus1 ~]$ cd ProtonSBFolder  
Setup your environment
[username@plus1 PhotonSBFolder]$ source /unix/pbt/software/dev/bin/pbt-dev.sh  
Copy the code to your working directory and rename it
[username@plus1 PhotonSBFolder]$ cp -r /unix/pbt/tutorials/basic/ProtonSB .
  
[username@plus1 PhotonSBFolder]$ mv ProtonSB ProtonSB_source
Inside /home/username/ProtonSBFolder/ create a directory
[username@plus1 PhotonSBFolder]$ mkdir ProtonSB_build  
To compile the code enter this directory and run cmake and make
[username@plus1 PhotonSBFolder]$ cd ProtonSB_build 

[username@plus1 ProtonSB_build]$ cmake -DGeant4_DIR=/unix/pbt/software/dev /home/username/ProtonSBFolder/ProtonSB_source 

[username@plus1 ProtonSB_build]$ make  
Run macro proton.mac
[username@plus1 ProtonSB_build]$ ./protonSB proton.mac
