Dear Aqsa Which physics list are you using? Kind regards Susanna Sent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone. -------- Original message -------- From: Aqsa <email@example.com> Date: 28/5/18 3:36 pm (GMT+10:00) To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Neutron Flux *** Discussion title: Medical Applications I have written a simple program in which I need to obtain photon flux by hitting energetic electrons on a Tungsten target. In the program I have also added a detector for counting neutron flux. Since my photon energy will be crossing GDR I am expecting considerable amount of neutron production. When I compared the neutron yield obtained from my GEANT4 code to that of few theoretical formulae and experimental yield given in papers, I found that GEANT4 is giving much less neutron flux (In extreme cases as much as one order less) than expected from theory. I know that simulation codes tend to underestimate the yields but I am worried if one order less is too much of underestimate. Any suggestions? ------------------------------------------------------------- Visit this GEANT4 at hypernews.slac.stanford.edu message (to reply or unsubscribe) at: http://hypernews.slac.stanford.edu/HyperNews/geant4/get/medical_app/413.html [ MIME part of type text/html without a name stripped ]
