I just can add that we in our medical-beam-oriented measurements
understand "Bragg peak" exactly what it was in the original paper:
everything that shows a peaked ionization loss by a charged particle
by the end of its track.
And practically we measure, for example, how the energy deposited by
an ion in a detector decreases with increase of tissue-like moderator
thickness, penetrated by the particle before it reaches the detector.
And our tipical units are MeV/cm.
