    For extremely ionizing radiation-resistant bacteria, survival has been attributed to protection of proteins from oxidative damage during irradiation, with the result that repair systems survive and function with far greater efficiency during recovery than in sensitive bacteria. Here we examined...

    A Monte Carlo calculation of photo- and conversion electron yields and spectra from a Fe target shows that the yield and hardening of the spectrum increase with increasing grazing angles of incidence of the primary beam, and that this effect is sharper for photoelectrons, indicating that their...

    A photoionization spectrometer has been developed for measuring the ion yields for fullerenes in the photon energy range of 23-200 eV. Gaseous fullerenes were supplied from a high-temperature oven, ionized by irradiation of monochromatized synchrotron radiation, and detected after analysis with...

    Positronium (Ps) formation during self-irradiation by positrons was observed in n-alkanes of various carbon chain length. The rise of Ps intensity with time of irradiation is the result of positronium formation with trapped excess electrons. In the range T < 190 K the saturation value of...

    Phosphors are materials that emit light under the excitation of incoming radiation. This property is used, among other applications, in radiation detection. Efficient energy transfer from the ionization track to the luminescent centers must occur to yield significant light output. Besides, the...

    Abstract. X-ray spectra from nitrogen clusters irradiated with ultrashort laser pulses are reported. The line spectra of H-like and He-like nitrogen ions have been observed by irradiation with 100 fs, 800 nm pulses at 7 x 10[sup 17] W/cm[sup 2] irradiance. The generation of highly charged ions...
