Kinetic energy of secondaries which are not generated (e.g. below threshold) are counted in the dE/dx of the primary particle. I would suggest to keep default cut ( ~ 1 mm). Playing with cuts will be a later refinement.
2- Make sure that you have neutronHP in your physics list (compare with hafnium.out.txt).
3- Around 1 eV, neutron capture dominates, cross section increases, mean free path is "only" ~0.5 mm Then ~10^7 events would allow to see few interactions.
4- At most energies, elastic collisions may be important. The recoil nucleus contributes to energy deposition. But, for various reasons, this recoil nucleus is not generated by default. To create it, make sure that your physics list includes the statement setCutValue(0*mm, "proton") Instead, you can use the command /run/setCutForAGivenParticle proton 0. mm (if you do not understand well what I am speaking about, play with Hadr03 ...)
5- I tried your exercice with Hadr07. I attach macro, output and plot. As you will see, there are 94 interactions for 10^7 events.
