hi everybody, my simulation consists of sending neutrons at different energies to

interact with a scintillator in order to find the efficiency of that one.

the problem is when i visualize my simulation i always see that the interaction

between neutrons and the scintillaor giving birth to protons and carbon 12

and that s normal because the scintillator is C10 H13,but the protons

generated by the reaction of neutrons and hydrogen interact with the

matter in the scintillator and are stopped(there is energy deposit).

if the neutron interact with a carbon, the carbon never interact with

the matter and is always emitted from the scintillator(wihtout any energy


what should i add to my physic list or anywhere to make possible the

interaction of the carbon in the matter and to ensure the energy deposit ??

i tried to add the process of the GenericIon considering that the C 12

is an ion but it still didn t work.
