This work shows one of the activity of the group in the framework of the HOLMES project for direct neutrino mass search. Starting from Ho oxide and working at high temperature, it is possible to obtain the deposition of a metal Ho film which is necessary for the implantation into cryogenic detectors. A simulation has been developed to evaluate the distribution of the deposition of metallic holmium onto a target used as a trap and to estimate the efficiency of the process and eventually optimize controllable parameters. Object of this work is the simulation itself, its design, implementations and a discussion of the results.
