thank you for your fast reply. I am currently using the latest version of Geant4 and I have indeed looked into the G4UHadronElasticProcess. However, this process obtains its cross sections from G4HadronElasticDataSet and thus from G4HadronCrossSections. Thus it appears to refer to exactly the same hardcoded zero.

I am well aware that this is not the most important effect, but it happens to be the main effect for my study as it is spin dependend.

I will look into the binary cascade. thank you for the info :)
