Question nOfSecondary Weighting 

Forum: Biasing and Scoring
Date: 02 May, 2010
From: <Dr_Cards>


I am attempting to calculate the neutron energy spectra resulting from high energy alpha particles colliding with a lead target. I am using the scoring user commands:

/score/quantity noOfSecondary /score/filter/particlewithenergy neutron Emin Emax

for the energies I am interested in.

I understand a particle "weight" is applied to the noOfSecondary command.

Can someone please explain to me what the particle weighting factor is and how I can correct for it to give me the actual unweighted energy spectra of the neutrons.

Thanks in Advance

Kind Regards
