An X-ray generation and exposure system dedicated for radiation biology is developed. An X-ray pulse of 8.0 keV in energy as short as 1 ps is generated with a fs-laser pulse, and sample cells are irradiated through a specially designed cell dish with a silicon nitride membrane. DNA double-strand breaks in a nucleus of a human caner cell are caused by X-ray irradiation, and similar DNA breaks are obtained to those with the conventional X-ray source. This result demonstrates feasibility of radiobiological study with a single burst of X-rays shining on a single cell specimen.
