As you can see on output, the mean free path ( or interaction length) of neutron (10 MeV) is 4.68 cm. Therefore the probability to have one interaction within 10 nm is 10 nm/4.68 cm = ~2 10^-7``` ``` In other words, you must have ~5 10^6 neutrons beam to get one interaction, or 5 10^9 neutrons to get 1000 interactions. Have you such a statistic ?``` ``` Attachment: http://hypernews.slac.stanford.edu/HyperNews/geant4/get/AUX/2017/10/04/03.40-36421-hafnium.mac.txt http://hypernews.slac.stanford.edu/HyperNews/geant4/get/AUX/2017/10/04/03.40-10094-hafnium.out.txt ```
