Can you be a little bit more explicit on what you really would like to
If you mean delayed emission of neutrons:
it is true that we do not produce them in FLUKA, but there is
no particular difficulty behind that. Their inclusion is part of our
project of improvement of the neutron library and we hope to achieve that
goal, soon or later.
If you are instead interested in gamma emission after neutron capture,
then this is already included in FLUKA.
