[ RadSafe ] open source ion interaction with matter code

     I wonder which ions, which materials and what are  the energies of 
     Many people in the USA can get a copy of MCNPX by  sending the money 
to Los Alamos or wherever.
I don't know what the concerns would be.
     Other possible (shielding???) computer codes are:  MCNP, LAHET, CASIM, 
FLUKA, Mars (USSR) and many others.  Many different  codes and software 
packages are available for a handling charge from the RSICC  (Radiation 
Shielding Information Center) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.   Newer versions of 
such codes can be gotten from the code's authors.
    A code for electron gamma showers is EGS.
    Good Luck   Joe Preisig

Hi All,  

A friend of mine (astronomer) is looking for code similar to MCNP-X  that 
will calculate the energy loss of ions as a function of distance traveled  to 
the interaction with different materials. 

They have concerns about  the licensing and use requirements of MCNP-X. 

I have only used MCNP-X  and haven't really looked for other options. 

I thought that someone on  the list may know of something that I can pass 
along to him.
