The damage induced in supercoiled plasmid DNA molecules by low energy (<500 eVu-1) carbon ions has been investigated as a function of ion dose. The production of short linear fragments through multiple double strand breakage is suggested and exponential dose responses for each of the topoisomers are presented.
