Thank you very much for the quick response and it worked. Now I have very good agreement with standard responses. I thought just using QGSP_BERT_HP will automatically activate thermal scattering model.
I'm briefly explaining the changes I did for this to work if any one has the same issue.
To activate the thermal neutron scattering model, I referred the post by Michael Kelsey (http://hypernews.slac.stanford.edu/HyperNews/geant4/get/hadronprocess/1471.html). I have attached the physics list I used based on this post.
Apart from this one more important change is the material definition. Materials relevant to thermal processes must be defined with their corresponding specific names defined in the class G4NeutronHPThermalScatteringNames. I have defined Polyethylene as follows,
G4Element* elTSH = new G4Element( "TS_H_of_Polyethylene", "H_POLYETHYLENE" , 1.0 , 1.0079*g/mole );
G4Material* HDpoly_TS = new G4Material( "Polyethylene_TS" , density = 0.963*g/cm3 , ncomponents = 2 );
HDpoly_TS -> AddElement(elTSH,natoms=2);
HDpoly_TS -> AddElement(elC,natoms=1);
Refer page 21 of this presentation by Tatsumi (http://geant4.slac.stanford.edu/SLACTutorial14/HadronicPhysics2.pdf).
Thank you again Tatsumi.
