Question Problem with extended example 'radioactivedecay/exrdm' macro(s) 

Forum: Documentation and Examples

From: Dan Higgins <Dan Higgins>

I have been investigating the use of the 'radioactivedecay/exrdm' example using GEANT 4.9.2.b01 (although the same thing seems to occur with 4.9.1 and 4.8.3). One of the macros included with example is 'neutron-10e.mac'. This macro simulates the effects of low energy neutrons incident on a NaI target.

Increasing /tracking/verbose in the macro script and looking at the results seems to indicate that this neutron example has no interactions in passing through the target!

It looks like setting a new material in the macro is not working properly. My real interest was in neutron reaction with boron. Setting the target material to boron in the macro seemed to give no reactions. However, if I create a boron material in the C++ code (rather than the macro script) and assign it to the target, I then get the expected reactions in the boron!

Can anyone else duplicate this problem? If so, any suggestions for the cause?
