Question nCapture process question

  ==================================

Hi I have a quick question regarding thermal neutron physics. I was looking at some thermal events from Br80 and we observe that after a nCapture process we get a bunch of gammas and one to several electrons, about 3. Why do we get electrons and where do they come from? What would be the easiest way to find out using my classes?

I am collecting my data in my stepping action class. As soon as I get an nCapture event, I tap into the list of secondary particles and I get the list of "those" tracks in the stack associated with that event.

Thank you, C.
