Paper Abstract

Progress with an x-ray microprobe for radiobiological studies is described. The instrument uses laboratory soft x-ray sources to give either continuum radiation or pulsed line radiation. A zone plate forms a fine probe from the x-ray beam which may be used to target individual cells or sub-cellular components with defined radiation doses. A preliminary experiment has shown a definite biological effect.
