Improving Geant4 coherent scattering by adding nuclear Thomson and Delbr$"u$ck Processes

Omer, M.  ; Hajima, Ryoichi*

This paper proposes an improvement to the Geant4 coherent scattering by implementing additional physics processes that are not currently taken into account. Coherent or elastic scattering is treated in Geant4 in a way such that only Rayleigh process (R) is the unique contributor to the entire elastic scattering of $$gamma$$ rays. However, there are competing processes such as nuclear Thomson (NT) and Delbr$"u$ck (D) processes which are treated for the first time in the present work. A significant aspect encountered at implementing elastic scattering simulation is the interference among the different scattering amplitudes of R, NT, and D. Therefore; we prepared the required amplitudes of R based on the scattering matrix calculations, amplitudes of D based on the lowest order Born approximation, and amplitudes of NT based on an analytical equation. This present simulation is essential in implementing a star-to-end simulation of a nondestructive assay of nuclear materials using nuclear resonance fluorescence.
