Do you mean the problem of zero results? In the previous case it turned out to be just poor statistics. The standard cell flux detector is based on the collision flux estimator, which doesn't perform too well for small volumes. I recommend you use the track-length estimator-type detector instead:

Also, there is a paper a paper related to this issue which might be worth reading:

Dear Jaakko,

Is it possible to send me this paper? The source as you also confirmed has to be very close to the detector in order to obtain some counts
but that's not what I am after so I guess I have to try the track length.

Best regards!
