Inactivation probability of heavy ion-irradiated Bacillus subtilis spores as a function of the radial distance to the paricle's trajectory
The understanding of the radiobiological action of heavy ions requires the knowledge of the dependence of the inactivation probability on the distance between the particle's trajectory and theExpand

Radiobiological investigations of cosmic HZE-particles with visual track detectors in the biostack experiment
Abstract The aim of the Biostack, namely, to contribute to a dosimetry of the HZE-particles as the highly structured component of the cosmic radiation, leads to a variety of physical and biologicalExpand
