Proton and boron-11 fusion

Dear Geant4 experts,

Can I simulate the fusion reaction of proton and boron-11 at approximately 675 keV, as colliding proton and boron-11 beam head-on or sending proton beam to solid boron-11 target, with Geant4?

Best regards, Selman

No

Hi Michel,

Can you briefly explain to me why this is not possible?

Thank you for your reply.
Selman

Playing with Hadr03, I found that threshold for C11 production is ~4 MeV for Bertini and Shielding, ~5 MeV for Inclxx and ~8 MeV for BIC and QBBC.
C12 is never produced.

Sorry Michel but I couldn’t understand you exactly. Are you talk about energies of proton? Because with 675 keV energy I was meaning kinetic energy of proton not the Q-value of reaction.

I am sorry for my english, hope you can understand me.
Selman

I was not speaking of Q, but on the minimal kinetic energy of proton beam.

Thank you for your all replies and help, I got the answer I was looking for.
