Question Neutron Behavior 

Forum: Hadronic Processes
Date: 15 Jul, 2010
From: Dylan <Dylan>


I'm simulating neutron attenuation in air at long distances. I came upon something strange: The transmission coefficient increased as I increased energy from 5-14 MeV, but beyond 15 MeV the transmission coefficient started to decrease. I was detecting about 75% of neutrons at a distance of 100 Meters at 14 MeV, but only about 60% of neutrons at 30 MeV. Does anybody know why this would happen?

Thanks, Dylan Reedy
