Hi Agnieszka,

you cannot score the current in the ionization chamber with FLUKA. What you can do is to score
deposited energy in the gas, and knowing the work function you can calculate the number of
electrons produced. Of course this will not include any effect from the electric field.
Where, electric fields as well are not supported in FLUKA.

Subject: [fluka-discuss]: Current scoring by USRBDX - ionization chamber

Dear Fluka Users,

I am trying to score current on the anode in ionization chamber. Is it posiible to score it directly by USRBDX card or this card is only used for angular distributions?

Can You please also advise how to apply voltage of 400V between cathode and the anode?

Best regards,
