Hahn, Marc Benjamin ; Meyer, Susann ; Schröter, Maria-Astrid ; Seitz, Harald ; Kunte, Hans-Jörg ; Solomun, Tihomir ; Sturm, Heinz (2016)

We report on a study in which plasmid DNA in water was irradiated with 30 keV electrons generated by a scanning electron microscope and passed through a 100 nm thick Si3N4 membrane. The corresponding Monte Carlo simulations suggest that the kinetic energy spectrum of the electrons throughout the water is dominated by low energy electrons (<100 eV). The DNA radiation damage, single-strand breaks...
