E.MeV.u: Ion energy values

Description

Description

In libamtrack, the kinetic energy for particles is usually given in Megaelectronvolt per nucleon (MeV/u). For therapeutical beam these are usually in range between approx. 1 MeV/u and 500 MeV/u. Please note, that simply the number of nucleons is used, not the actual mass of the nucleon (amu) for a specific nuclid. So, for example for U-238 with 100 MeV/u the total kinetic energy is 23.8 GeV.
