Re: Question Neutron spallation numbers not adding up (Cristian Bungau)

Hi,

Checking the "/tracking/verbose 1" output more carefully it looks like in many (most of the) neutron capture processes, taking the captured neutron track ID, there is only one gamma which has the parent ID matching the neutron's track ID, and no element/isotope that should be produced in these processes is tracked/simulated.

So in many neutron capture processes there is only one gamma produced and no new (A->A+1) nucleus.

In order to find how many Th-233 isotopes are produced from n-capture on Th-232, I could of course count the neutron capture processes rather than the produced Th-233 nuclei, and this would solve my second question.

The first question regarding what happened to the neutrons produced, given the big difference in (neutron_produced) - (neutrons_escaping+neutrons_captured), still remains...

Best regards,

Cristian
