Question Photofission 

Forum: Hadronic Processes
Date: 22 Oct, 2015
From: Glen Warren <Glen Warren>

I'm looking into how well G4 (10.1.p01 on OS X 10.10.5) describes photo-fission in the energy range of 6-15 MeV photons. I've played around with three reference physics lists (FTFB_BERT_HP, QGSP_BIC_HP, Shielding) and find all three to give very high neutron yields for photofission, something like 13 n/fission when it should be closer to 3-4. Neutron induced fission works reasonable well, both in neutron yield and cross section, for the couple of spot checks that I did. Does anyone have any suggestion what I could do to improve the generation of secondaries from photofission?

Thanks
