WG Inelastic Electron Scattering

Present main research topic


High energetic radiation leads to mutations and damages of biological tissue on a molecular level. It turned out that low energy electrons (Ekin < 15 eV) play an important role in this processes. To get a better understanding about the ongoing processes we also carry out experiments with biomolecules. Another important topic in this research area is related to the stability of radiosensitisers towards the irradiation with low energy electrons. These molecules are used in oncology to improve the sensitivity of tumor cells towards radiation.
