Dear Maja,

I would prefer that you send such emails to the fluka-discuss list.
FLUKA can do electron and photon tracking correctly down to 1keV. The
recommended setting of 100keV is for most applications a safe limit to
speed up the simulation.
To lower the limit you have to use the PART-THRes card.
Continuous = energy deposition from "continuous processes" along the
track like dE/dx
Point = energy deposition from interactions at specific points in space

Best Regards
