Thanks a lot for reply.

I am not sure the cross section you used here is for inelastic scattering only. And the number 20 is the number of gammas on 847keV peak, not the total number of interactions.

I use Shielding physics list here. I guess it also uses NeutronHP for neutron interatctions. When the concentration is relatively high, say 6000PPM or higher, I see similar result as you saw. The absence of Cu does not affect Fe spectrum a lot. But when the Fe concentration is low, say around 60PPM, I can see strong effect from Cu contamination. (see attached)

Moreover, at low concentration, there is no linear relationship between Fe concertration and number of gammas on the peak. You can see when the concentration increases from 60ppm to 6000ppm, the number of gammas only increase from 20 to 60(see attached)

So it seems like a problem for low concentration situation.

Thanks a lot for any explanation.
