An electrostatic cryogenic storage ring, CSR, for beams of anions and cations with up to 300 keV kinetic energy per unit charge has been designed, constructed, and put into operation. With a circumference of 35 m, the ion-beam vacuum chambers and all beam optics are in a cryostat and cooled by a closed-cycle liquid helium system. At temperatures as low as(More)
Positively charged, branched polyethylenimine (PEI) adsorbed onto silicon wafers and silica surfaces are attacked by free hydroxyl radicals. With AFM colloid probe technique, the surface forces between PEI layers are measured. Force profiles show that an electrostatic repulsion dominates the surface forces between freshly deposited PEI layers. After radical(More)
Radical induced modification of DNA plays an important role in many pathological pathways like cancer development, aging, etc. In this work, we quantify radical-induced DNA damage that causes transitions from double to single stranded DNA using atomic force microscopy (AFM). The plasmid pBR322 is attacked by free hydroxyl radicals that are produced by(More)
