Yes, as stated, for ions above those energies, you should link to the appropriate models (ldpm3qmd), or else you are not going to get all the reaction channels. Those other reactions will 'subtract' from your beam of protons or heavy ions thereby reducing the intensity (height) of the bragg peak, which will be smeared off to shorter ranges.

Dear Mario,

Thank you for your reply. For proton beam, I got the same result by using lfluka and ldpm3qmd. But for other ions defined with BEAM -- HEAVYION and HI-PROPE the position of Bragg peak remains constant for a specific energy of the beam, however, the shape of the curve changes. Attached pictures are for the O-16 beam at different energies.

I still don't understand the shape of Bragg curves for proton or Helium beams passing through water or Polyethylene.

About your second question, copied below, because you have a proton beam (and not an ion beam), you can use lfluka.

If you want to be on the safe side, and not worry about your setup, use ldpm3qmd (can deal with ions even above 125 MeV)

Also, how do I choose correctly the linker (lfluka, lflukac, ldpmqmd, ldpm2qmd, ldpm3qmd) for this kind of problem while compiling, and other cards?
