Question Can't pick up Li-7 in a BNCT model 

Forum: Hadronic Processes
Date: 24 Sep, 2014
From: Leila Moghadasi <Leila Moghadasi>

Dear Geant4 expert,

I am trying to simulate BNCT. I used QGSP_BIC_HP reference physics list for hadronic processes and use sensitive detector class for tracking particles. I want to tally the dose from n(B-10,Li-7)He-4 nuclear reaction (neutron is thermal), however, I can only pick up alpha particle and lithium 7 is rarely picked up. I've already read the answer to a similar question in this link:(http://hypernews.slac.stanford.edu/HyperNews/geant4/get/hadronprocess/1365/1/1.html)explaining the limitation of cascade models for low energy hadrons. My question is, if there is any other way that I can pick up the dose from this reaction, I just want the combined dose from alpha and lithium and don't care about their individual deposited dose?

Thank for your help, Leila
