Abstract
A localized X-ray source for the pin-point treatment of cancers using femto-second laser has been developed. Particular emphasis is put on i) stable emission of X-rays, ii) a sufficient dose and iii) a sufficient photon energy for the treatment. Almost 80 % of the objectives listed above has been realized and the first X-ray irradiation test on cancer cells shows a significant effect on the cancer DNA.
