Physical Review A - Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics
We present measurements of total cross sections for 1 to 30 eV positrons scattered by uracil molecules. The measurements are done using a beam transmission technique on a setup adjusted to accommodate the nature of uracil and we discuss possibilities of future experiments studying positron interactions with more complicated targets. These and future investigations of positron interactions with biomolecules have potential relevance to various biomedical applications.
