Abstract

Purpose: Theoretical modelling techniques are often used to simulate the action of ionizing radiations on cells at the nanometre level, Using monoenergetic vacuum-UV (VUV) radiation to irradiate DNA either dry or humidified, the action spectra for the induction of DNA damage by low energy photons and the role of water and can be studied. These data provide inputs for the theoretical models.
