Dear LAMMPS users and developers,

   I would like to add no translational energy to a single atom (heat). This single atom is an addatom inserted by "fix deposit" that I want to release thermal energy after being stopped by the substrate.
  I have tried to use "fix heat" but I got a message: "Fix heat group has no atoms" even after deposition. 

fix deposit allows you to add a kinetic energy, i.e. velocity to deposited atoms. that energy is automatically released (or rather transferred) to the substrate, when the atoms collide with it.
  Additionaly, I want to add energy only to atoms just deposited, not to the atoms deposited many steps before.

​you sound like you are talking about some other kind of "internal" energy, however with classical MD point particles there is only kinetic energy.
