Dear FLUKA experts,

I am currently simulating the absorbed dose profile from neutrons
(spectrum from ~10 MeV down to thermal energies) in a water phantom by
That dose distribution should consist of amounts from recoil nuclei (in
water mainly recoil protons) and gamma photons from neutron capture (in
water mainly on hydrogen) respectively their secondary electrons. Is it
possible to separate these two dose components from each other (e.g. by
switching off one of these two interaction mechanisms while the other
remains switched on)?
Which physic cards are responsible for these two mechanisms?

Thank you
