Dear Denis,

Yes, define a tiny Au-target and bias the interaction length with
LAM-BIAS, similar to

Don't forget that you'll finally have to correct for the finite target
thickness. With biasing you'll force FLUKA to simulate an interaction but
all secondaries carry a weight which corrects for the biasing factor.

Alternatively, I could send you a stand-alone version of DPMJET which you
can use to simulate single Au-Au interactions. However, then you would
have to write out final states in an external file and read it in via
SOURCE into FLUKA... Probably rather complicated.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
