At very low energies, there's likely just zero or one outgoing neutrons, but at higher energies, you can imagine that the final state may contain multiple neutrons and protons. > In general, is there any meaningful way to record neutron energy lost? > Or should I record something like change in neutron kinetic energy?

I think your best bet is to try the delta-KE (pre-step - post-step) approach, but even there you may not be totally successful with what you think you're recording. > Just for curiosity, when estimating dose deposited by neutrons, how is > that generally calculated?
