Microdosimetry and targeted irradiation
In order to irradiate microscopic objects the radiation comming from the source is being
refocused on the sample.
The diameter of focused beam is less than 20 um, and the minimal repeateable step of sample
positioners is less than 1 um. Fast beam shutter set a precise time of irradiation
(min. 120 ms).

X-ray litography. Letters IFJ irradiated on stomatologic x-ray
film. The beam is wider due to distraction on the film cover.
The first application is microdosimetry - analysing the behavior of biological cells after irradiation.
The sample is observed with the use of optical microscope (resolution 3 um),
equipped with camera.
