Thanks very much.
Very useful hint.

However, I have another problem is:
I tried to simulate boron neutron capture therapy, which based on the nuclear capture and fission reactions that occur when non-radioactive boron-10 is irradiated with neutrons of the appropriate energy to yield excited boron-11 (11B*), which in turn decays into high energy alpha particles ("stripped" down 4He nuclei) and high energy lithium-7 (7Li) nuclei. (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron_capture_therapy_of_cancer)

I output the track information, I found that there is very few neutron capture process with neutron and B10.
And most interesting thing is alpha and li7 are generated by inelastic process.

Did I misunderstand this definition at all?

Thanks,
Best regards,
