Wow thxs for the tip at the end and for all your clarifications.

Regarding inelastic scattering, I should understand the original neutron disappears and a new neutron is added to the list of secondary particles, right? So I am assuming this new neutron will have a different trackID?

In general, is there any meaningful way to record neutron energy lost? Or should I record something like change in neutron kinetic energy? If I do that, then I will have to make sure those changes are recorded only for neutrons going elastic scattering in case I am storing track information.

Just for curiosity, when estimating dose deposited by neutrons, how is that generally calculated? Would that come from all the energy deposited by its secondary particles?

Thank you, C.
