Dear Ertan,

in FLUKA there is no way to distinguish between alloys and amorphous
What you need to input (by commands MATERIAL and COMPOUND) is the
density and the relative atom composition, probably expressed as fractional
weight amounts in your case.
I guess that the difference between your two targets shows up only as a
different density.
