Hello and thank you for your reply.

I still think I miss something here. To validate the Geant4 results, I use the equation M*sigma*flux. For example, in your run, we have 100m Au (19.3 gr/cm3) so M = 19.3*10000 gr/cm2 * 6.023*10^23 /197 = 5.9*10^26 nuclei of Au-197/cm2 and sigma=565.82 mbarn = 0.56582*10-24 cm2 and flux=10000 gammas. The M*sigma*flux based on the previous calculations returns 3.34*10^6 reactions.

So why your simulation derived just 10000 reactions?
