Photonics of Biopolymers
Photonics of biopolymers discusses the processes of energy transformation in photoexcited proteins, nucleic acids, membranes and model systems. The author addresses, among other topics: Light absorption, screening and reabsorption; photometric studies of protein; energy transfer mechanics; fluorescent probes; photomodulation of enzymes, and photoactiviation. Much of the information stems from the author's own wide experience in the field.
"This work will stimulate further understanding of light interactions with biomolecules and will encourage other scientists to enter the field" (Prof. S. Schulman, University of Florida)"Photonics of Biopolymers is an outstanding book" (Prof. J. Fidy, Institute of Biophysics, Hungary)
