Adaptation of a nucleon-nucleus elastic scattering model for LAHET{trademark}

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The LAHET Monte Carlo code for the transport and interaction of nucleons, pions, muons, light ions, and antinucleons has been upgraded by the addition of an elastic scattering model for neutrons above 15 MeV and protons above 50 MeV. Earlier elastic scattering in LAHET has been limited to neutrons below 100 MeV, using a library of elastic optical-model cross sections generated using the Bechetti-Greenlees potential. The new methodology has been adapted from the HERMES code. However, the sampling algorithm for the center-of-mass scattering angle has been completely rewritten, and the elastic cross section data has been replaced below 400 MeV. ... continued below

The new methodology has been adapted from the HERMES code. However, the sampling algorithm for the center-of-mass scattering angle has been completely rewritten, and the elastic cross section data has been replaced below 400 MeV. The new method is viewed as an intermediate step in the effort to provide a library of both elastic and non-elastic cross sections from a global optical-model potential for LAHET usage.
