    Abstract

    The interaction of multiply charged ions with fullerenes involves processes such as ionization, evaporation, fragmentation and electron emission. The relative importance of these deexciation channels depends on the projectile parameters charge state q, velocity v and atomic number Z. We give a brief review on the most recent results regarding ion-induced fullerene excitation and de-excitation. Furthermore, attention is paid to the application of the obtained knowledge and techniques to the investigion of small biomolecules.
