A Monte Carlo code, suited for nuclear astrophysics experiments, is described. The code has been developed in the frame of the LUNA pilot project at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso. An accurate evaluation of ion energy and angular straggling, and Doppler broadening has been implemented, which are important at subCoulomb energies. The considered effects are compared with experimental data. © 1995.
