Dear FLUKA experts,
I am working on studying systematics uncertainties that stem from the assumed hadronic model, specifically in the context of CR flux measurements with space-based detectors. In our analyses, the detector acceptance for a large part depends on the inelastic cross section, as this effectively determines where (at which depth) a particle will start showering in the detector. Being able to directly comparing the absolute values of these inelastic cross sections for different hadronic models would thus be very useful.
My question: Is there an easy way to directly extract the numerical value of the inelastic cross section for a given primary particle and target material? To give just an example, let’s say for instance a 10 TeV He4 nucleus colliding with carbon. In particular, I’m wondering if something similar can be done as in this example (geant4/examples/extended/hadronic/Hadr00 at master · Geant4/geant4 · GitHub) for Geant4.
All the best,
