Dear Geant4 Users,
I was simulating the energy deposition in the ion chamber filled with Helium-3 gas at 0.5 atmosphere and room temperature which is hit by thermal neutrons (range 2meV to 9meV) producing proton and triton through the capture reaction : n + 3^He ---> p + t . I was using modular based Physics list QGSP_BERT_HP with Geant4 v10.02 . While the simulation produces some aspects as expected , but the angular distribution of proton and triton tracks are puzzling to us. Helium-3 at room temperature (298K) of the experiment gives proton and triton tracks heavily biased towards -z and +z axis respectively ( where z axis is the direction of neutron beam) as shown in the attachments. We get correct angular distribution if we set Helium-3 temperature to 0K and in the later case the energy deposition in the chamber from the simulation agrees with the experiment but it distorts other validated features.
I am not sure if something wrong with the PhysicsList or I am missing something ?
Any input will be appreciated.
