Question wrong gamma energies from neutron capture on 56Fe 

Forum: Hadronic Processes
Date: 27 Nov, 2009
From: Victor_Makarov <Victor_Makarov>

Hello. I try to simulate neutron capture on 56Fe. I write generated gammas created by NeutronCapture process. The gamma-spectrum I get confuses me. Though it has main 2 peaks - 7631.18 and 7645.58 MeV, peak 6018.42 seems to be replaced by 6380 MeV (in terms of intensity). To cut a long story, I would like to know the present condition of Geant's database for gammas from neutron capture. I've examined the forum and found one proposal to use G4NEUTRONHP_USE_ONLY_PHOTONEVAPORATION. This option doesn't help much. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

The source for gamma-lines from neutron capture I used to compare was http://www.nndc.bnl.gov/capgam/byn/page058.html
