Abstract

Version 2 of the Intranuclear Cascade with Emission of Light Fragments (INC-ELF) code is developed and incorporated into the Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System (PHITS). The aim of INC-ELF2 is to expand it to the lower incident-energy range of 30–200 MeV, where the original INC theory is not applicable. The refinement of the code is based faithfully on the results of basic research on direct reactions within the framework of the INC model. INC-ELF2 can deal with the emission of light fragments from nuclear reactions induced by protons and neutrons. Double-differential cross-sections are calculated by a two-step model combining INC-ELF2 and GEM (generalized evaporation model) in PHITS, and they are compared with experimental data to examine the predictive ability. Excellent agreement is confirmed for various reactions over a wide range of target masses and over the incident-energy range of 30–200 MeV.
