Question Missing implementation of deuteron elastic scattering 

Keywords: Cross Section Deuteron Elastic Scattering
Forum: Hadronic Processes
Date: 06 Dec, 2006
From: N.P.M. Brantjes <N.P.M. Brantjes>

HI, I want to simulate deuteron scattering on a carbon target. My deuterons have a kinetic energy of around 500 MeV In Line 1258 of G4HadronCrossSections.cc, the elastic cross section for deuterons and Helium ions is hardcoded to 0. This process is therefore not implemented for deuterons.

I have a few questions about it. -Is this intentionally, or will this situation be fixed in the near future?

-When I put an arbitrary number here, the process takes place and there is some particle change as a result. Does this particle change reflect reality?

-What kind of model do you advise for me to implement to fix this problem?

-As the deuteron elastic process is obviously not working, can I still trust the implementation of the Deuteron inelastic process to reflect reality?

-In the deuteron inelastic process, also deuteron breakup seems to covered next to elastic scattering. Is there a particular reason for this and is there a way for these two interactions to show up under a different name?

Thanks ahead, Klaas Brantjes University Groningen
