MCNP : spatial position of interactions

  1. May 4, 2017 #1
    Hi, I'm new in this forum and I have a question about MCNPX.

    I would like to determine the position of each interaction between photons and matter (specially by Compton scattering.) And I would like to know how much energy the incident photon gave to the electron.
    Is it possible to do that with MCNP ? Somebody have already try to do something similar ?

    Thank you for your help.

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.

    Hey there,

    I'm looking into a similar function of MCNP and I think you want to look into a data card called "PTRAC". This will output an additional file with the location of the interaction. I think this can also produce vector information that could potentially be useful for a hand computation of the energy deposited.

    Hope this helps.
