ABSTRACT: We discuss microscopic mechanisms of irradiation in clusters and molecules in relation to irradiation problems for medical applications and in electronic circuits. We consider the case of isolated molecules/clusters [1] and/or in contact with an environment [2]. We use microscopic quantum methods to describe electronic degrees of freedom and follow explicitly in time both irradiation and response of the system. Examples are taken from free metal clusters, from fullerenes, from molecules of biological interest and from clusters deposited on a surface or embedded in a matrix [2,3]. We analyse the properties of emitted electrons (photo electron spectra, angular distributions…) which constitute a key tool of analysis of the properties of irradiated clusters and molecules [4,5].
