Dear Jean-Emmanuel,

the fluorescence effect that you are mentioning is following a photoelectric
effect, not an electron impact ionization. It is available in FLUKA since more
than 20 years.
As I said in response to Michele's question, electron impact ionization is in
preparation and should be available very soon, probably in the next FLUKA
