Question Neutron into Li6 

Keywords: neutron, Lithium, triton, alpha

From: Jeb <jbcolli2@ncsu.edu>

Hi, I am shooting low energy neutrons(1 x 10^-8 MeV) into Lithium-6 in Geant4 version 6. I am expecting to see triton and alpha particles created at least since the cross section is pretty high for that process. Can anyone give me a physics list for neutrons or tell me which processes are supposed to be turned on in order to get these particles. Or if anyone knows that Geant4 doesn't do this particular process, could you please let me know, thanks.

P.S. Here is the physics list that I have right now for neutrons
   // neutron Physics
   pManager = G4Neutron::Neutron()->GetProcessManager();

   // add process
   G4HadronElasticProcess* thenElasticProcess 
                         = new G4HadronElasticProcess();
   G4LElastic* thenElasticModel = new G4LElastic();
   thenElasticProcess->RegisterMe(thenElasticModel);
   pManager->AddDiscreteProcess(thenElasticProcess);

   G4NeutronInelasticProcess* theNeutronInelasticProcess 
                         = new G4NeutronInelasticProcess(); 

   G4LENeutronInelastic* theNeutronLEPModel = new G4LENeutronInelastic();
   G4HENeutronInelastic* theNeutronHEPModel = new G4HENeutronInelastic();
   theNeutronInelasticProcess->RegisterMe(theNeutronLEPModel);
   theNeutronInelasticProcess->RegisterMe(theNeutronHEPModel);
   pManager->AddDiscreteProcess(theNeutronInelasticProcess);

   G4HadronFissionProcess* thenFission
                         = new G4HadronFissionProcess();
   G4LFission* thenFissionModel = new G4LFission();
   thenFission->RegisterMe(thenFissionModel);
   pManager->AddDiscreteProcess(thenFission);

   G4HadronCaptureProcess* thenCapture
                         = new G4HadronCaptureProcess();
   G4LCapture* thenCaptureModel = new G4LCapture();
   thenCapture->RegisterMe(thenCaptureModel);
   pManager->AddDiscreteProcess(thenCapture);
