Question Non Ionizing Energy Loss (NIEL) and Displacement Damage

From: <jeonyboy@gmail.com>

Hello, I am trying to gather information of NIEL and displacement damage from Geant4 simulations. I am trying to shoot neutron particles on a variety of materials such as Hafnium Dioxide and silicon dioxide.

From what I've discovered, there is a GetNonIonizingEnergy function which I tried to use in TestEm7. However, for neutrons, I am getting 0 value returned for nonionizing energy deposit. How do I remedy this?

Also, when I run example such as Hadr07, I can get a list of secondary particle created along with their min and max energies. Can I understand the secondaries as result of displacement damage? (See attached file).

Thank you so much in advance. I couldn't find much information about this matter on geant4 and any help would be much appreciated.
