Hi, following your helpful and detailed explanation, I have upped the neutron particle shot from 2x10^6 to 2x10^8 but still energy deposits are being observed. Maybe because the B4d example I am basing has default cut range much greater than nm?
So I am trying run/setCut 1 nm in my executable file before running the macro file. It takes really long time for it to process, hopefully this will work. I really appreciate your help.
