Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Electron
  • Ion
  • Organic chemistry

Léon Sanche mostly deals with Atomic physics, Electron, Dissociation, DNA and Ion. His work deals with themes such as Range, Electron scattering, Scattering and Amorphous ice, which intersect with Atomic physics. His Electron research integrates issues from Crystallography, Molecular solid, Molecule and Analytical chemistry.

His Dissociation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Desorption, Thymine, Cosmic ray and Electron capture. His research in DNA intersects with topics in Yield, Biophysics and Secondary electrons. His Ion research also works with subjects such as

  • Photochemistry, which have a strong connection to Mass spectrometry and Radical,
  • X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Ionic bonding most often made with reference to Condensed matter physics.

His most cited work include:

  • Resonant Formation of DNA Strand Breaks by Low-Energy (3 to 20 eV) Electrons (1543 citations)
  • Low energy electron-driven damage in biomolecules (412 citations)
  • DNA strand breaks induced by 0-4 eV electrons: the role of shape resonances. (339 citations)
