Question carbon interaction with the matter 

Keywords: carbon12, interaction with the matter
Forum: Physics List
Date: 03 Apr, 2006
From: habib <>

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 ??
