Title: Delta-ray Production in MCNP 6.2.0

Abstract

Secondary electrons in the form of delta-rays, also referred to as knock-on electrons, have been a feature of MCNP for electron and positron transport for over 20 years. While MCNP6 now includes transport for a suite of heavy-ions and charged particles from its integration with MCNPX, the production of delta-rays was still limited to electron and positron transport. In the newest release of MCNP6, version 6.2.0, delta-ray production has now been extended for all energetic charged particles. The basis of this production is the analytical formulation from Rossi and ICRU Report 37. As a result, this paper discusses the MCNP6 heavy charged-particle implementation and provides production results for several benchmark/test problems.
