Sorry, for the late reply.

Your question can be reworded: What does it take to induce the 9.13MeV proton to lose all of its energy in one single step? Good question, I actually don't know the answer.

I presume the protons are the result of a neutron interacting in your scintillator. Since they are not the primaries in your simulation I have one suggestion. One way to not produce the secondary proton is to increase the production range cut threshold so protons are not actually tracked in your G4 simulation and all of the energy going into proton production is dumped at the point where the neutron interacted. Please, see:
Since no secondary proton is produced, the energy loss is attributed to the neutron and consequently, the scintillation yield must be defined for a neutron. But since the neutron is not one of the particles in the list of possible 'scintillation by particle type' options, the default yield, "ELECTRONSCINTILLATIONYIELD", must be provided for it as a function of energy.
Let me know if that works, Peter
