Question 181Ta(p,n) yield is way to low 

Forum: Physics List
Date: 30 Jul, 2008
From: C. Jewett <C. Jewett>

I am trying to simulate the production of neutrons by protons striking a Ta target. Unfortunately, the yield of neutrons produced by GEANT4 in the target is about two or more orders of magnitude too small according to mcnpx and CINDA cross section data for 181Ta(p,n)181W. I used the LHEP_BERT_HP physics list. I am dealing with protons of energies from 15 MeV to 50 MeV. Thanks for the help.
