After a very productive long weekend, I had finished my simulations for 1 MeV neutrons. Glenn asked me to repeat the same calculations for 10 keV and 100 keV neutrons. Further, he asked for error bars on every data point.

I ran simulations on 10 keV neutrons.

I finished simulations on 10 keV neutrons and started those on the 100 keV neutrons. Further, I sent the remaining macros to Glenn for analysis on a much faster server. At the end of the day, I had run 1.11 million events over about a week a nontrivial task!

As I awaited the return of my remaining data, I worked out the error bar formula.

The rest of my data came in. This is the graph that summarizes all my work in the past week 1150-1158 is the wall of the detector.
