Simulating crystals and defects

Hi everyone.

I’ve been trying to understand the geant4 extension to simulate crystalline sctrutures and I just wanted to understand if we can use this to simulate how the doping of crystal will affect the particle’s interactions.

In my particular case, I am interested in studying how different doping concentrations in an alumina crystal (to be a fluorescent nuclear track detector) will affect the formation of color centers (F-centers) and, when irradiated with protons, how these crystals with defects respond (i.e., the fluorescence).

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Thanks in advance,
