i want to simulate the inelastic scattering process of neutron in liquid argon. in my physics list for neutron, i turn only the inelastic scattering process on, as follows :
G4NeutronInelasticProcess* neutronInelastic = new G4NeutronInelasticProcess; G4NeutronHPInelastic* hpInelasModel = new G4NeutronHPInelastic; G4NeutronHPInelasticData* neutronInelasticData = new G4NeutronHPInelasticData; neutronInelastic->RegisterMe(hpInelasModel); neutronInelastic->AddDataSet(neutronInelasticData); pmanager->AddDiscreteProcess(neutronInelastic);
i shoot neutron(s) with initial Ekin = 10 MeV. i let the code print out how much energy neutrons transfer to the target after each inelastic scattering. the result is shown in the attachment. the weird thing (to me) is that the neutrons lose all their kinetic energy at once after inelastic scattering. the primary neutrons can be recognized in the screenshot via their Ekin (=10MeV) and the parentID (=0). the other neutrons with Ekin != 10 MeV are re-emitted neutrons.
i go through the complicated code for neutron inelastic scattering but still can hardly understand this effect (error ?).
would anybody mind telling me why it is so, or what i did wrong ?
thanks a lot in advance for your help
