Functionality is added to the McStas neutron ray-tracing code, which allows individual neutron states before and after a scattering to be temporarily stored, and analysed. This logging mechanism has multiple uses, including studies of longitudinal intensity loss in neutron guides and guide coating design optimisations. Furthermore, the logging method enables the cold/thermal neutron induced gamma background along the guide to be calculated from the un-reflected neutron, using a recently developed MCNPX-McStas interface. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
