Hello,

Further to my previous messages, identifying the backscattered neutrons and those undergoing neutron inelastic interactions, the numbers start to (almost) make sense:

7985 neutrons produced in inner volume.

1427 neutrons escaping inner volume.

4996 neutrons undergoing inelastic interactions inside inner volume.

119 neutrons producing fissions inside inner volume.

1443 neutrons captured inside inner volume.

64 (233Th) nuclei produced in the (1443) neutron capture processes inside inner volume.

So this entire post can be summarised in the following question:

Is it expected behaviour in HP neutron physics list to have nCapture processes and no (A+1) nucleus to be produced (~96% of the time)?

Thank you,

Best regards,

Cristian
