 +
 +Ion beam radiation therapy uses complicated atomic-physical effects to fight cancer cells. Our group has now identified a new mechanism that directly emits low energy electrons, which are very effective in destroying cancer cells.
 +An effect that has received little attention in this context plays an important role, the so-called "Interatomic Coulomb Decay" (ICD). The result has now been published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters by Janine Schwestka and co-workers.

-  * A bullet fired through a block of wood will slow down. In a similar way, ions are decelerated when they pass through a solid material: the thicker the material, the larger the energy loss will be. However, this picture breaks down in ultra-thin target materials, which only consist of a few layers of atoms. This was recently demonstrated by our group in collaboration with the Helmholtzzentrum Dresden-Rossendorf.  The results are reported in the latest issue of Physical Review Letters.  [[http://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.112.153201|Link to original publication]].

In a similar way, ions are decelerated when they pass through a solid material: the thicker the material, the larger the energy loss will be.
