Biomolecular Cluster Irradiation System (DIAM)

Abstract : DIAM is a new experimental system created for study the processes initiated by protons impact upon clusters of biomolecules especially the mechanism resulting from ionization and fragmentation in a complex molecular nanosystem. The experimental setup is designed to analyse interactions of two beams: on the one hand, protons from an ECR source are accelerated and guided into a monochromatic beam of 20 to 150 kV and 1mA. On the other hand, a cluster source is mounted on a high tension plat-form (5 to 30 kV). In order to analyse the products of protons/cluster interaction of the 2 crossing beams, we use several detection system such as Electro spray Time of Flight (ESI-TOF) or mass spectrometers.
