a Mean square displacement of the OH radicals produced around a 200-keV/u carbon ion’s path. b Time evolution of the number of OH radicals and produced H\(_2\)O\(_2\) molecules. Results of simulations where the shock wave is allowed to develop (transport by the collective flow, solid lines) and where it is artificially “switched off” (transport by diffusion, dashed lines) are shown, in order to demonstrate the shock wave effects on the radiation chemistry
