Question gamma rays from decays of nuclear excited states

Hi all,

I want to simulate response of detectors to gamma rays emitted
through decays of nuclear excited states, especially those produced
in (thermal) neutron capture reaction.
For example, in (thermal) neutron capture reaction of 14N,
the 10.8-MeV state in 15N is produced, which then decays by emitting
one or several gamma ray(s).

How can I produce such states (and accompanying gamma rays) ???
Are there any existing examples?

Reading codes and documents of the exRDM example, I thought that I
could simulate such processes by using "G4GeneralPraticleSource" and
specifying excited energies with the /gps/ion command.
But it seems that it only works for isomeric states (of radioactive
nuclides): a run of exRDM with "/gps/ion 7 15 0 10804" produced
nothing...

Thanks in advance.

Kazuyoshi
