Question Dose deposition / scoring 

Forum: Biasing and Scoring
Date: 28 Mar, 2011
From: Andrew Voyles <Andrew Voyles>

Hello all, I am quite new to GEANT4, and could use some help.

For background, I am modeling neutron activation in a thermal neutron irradiation facility. I am setting up sensitive detectors to calculate dose deposition from the secondary gammas produced in neutron activation.

First off, is the use of sensitive detectors the best method for calculating the dose from the irradiated sample?

Attached is a HepRep wireframe of the detector geometry, essentially a trapezoidal prism with a small cylinder (in yellow) near the center, representing the irradiated sample.

I am trying to find the best location/geometry for my detectors, that will not interfere with the planar neutron source (along the short base of the trapezoid), but still give an accurate dose calculation. I wanted to seek input as for any good starting points for this.

Thanks in advance for the help!
